No more SSBD. But there are elements of it that live on in the updated SS. I never wear my jackets closed but I did find that windier days would blow it open, making it awkward to walk comfortably. I kept the zipper guard snaps but pared them down to just two and switched them to a less noticeable ring style snap.

The floating eyewear pocket was something I thought of a while ago, so I was really excited to start applying it to as much as possible. It made perfect sense to incorporate it into the facing just by the shape fitting nicely into the pattern.

I sewed up a reference to show the stores and they came back with feedback that the liked the updates, but they wanted more range in colour.

With the silhouette dialed, I’m excited to see what other outer materials come down the line…
