  • Description

    A warm-weather version of our best-selling Ida Trench. It is one of my favorite pieces in the entire collection. It's easy, midweight long sleeve jacket, with everyone's favorite feature - pockets. I took our essential Clyde pocket and the excellent fit of our Annie Shirt dress from SS16 and combined them to create a classic trench. With added swing and large shawl collar, it has a deliciously nostalgic shape while still feeling ultra-modern. Massive pockets carry anything you need. 

    I imagine a young Annie Hall type wearing this with slim trousers, an oversized button-down and oxfords on a brisk afternoon walk to the city library. Wear with the collar folded down for a sleek look, or full for a structural shape.

    Cut from a sturdy, incredibly durable linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It will only soften and improve with age, a beautiful benefit of clothing meant for a life fully-lived.

    Midweight Linen

    100% Linen

    This is a medium weight, sturdy, structured, incredibly durable broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It has luxurious body and weight, and the strength to stand up to years of daily wear. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses, and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. It is also one of my favorite fabrics aesthetically - possessing such charm and texture in its variation, with a natural sheen that doesn't feel at all pretentious.

    Available in four classic colors - a warm "Ivory," a natural "Flax," a rich "Navy," and a deep "Black."

    Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry low. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles, straighten neckline, sleeves, and hem. Will press to a crisp, smooth finish.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Available in sizes XS-XL. See our size chart to determine your size.

    Intended to have a relaxed, oversized trapeze shape. Slimmer sleeves, but not tight. Should fit comfortably in the chest and shoulders and loosely in the waist and hips. Hits past the knee. Size up for a more relaxed, dramatic shape or down for a slimmer fit.

    Such a fun twist - this has a different name but it’s really the Ida from the CWC. I should have named that piece the Clyde Trench from the get-go - I’ll change that as well when we relaunch CWC! The pattern is the same except for sizing. We got a lot of feedback that this was running really, really large, so we sized down two full sizes. Which means an XS from the CWC would be a M in WWC. It is still really generous and the linen is not as restricting as the canvas (the model is very tall and is wearing a S, and she’s still got lots of room). If you previously wore a L or XL and are worried the new sizes won’t work, shoot us an email - we can still make one for you from the old pattern. We’ve got sizing updates coming this year, but we can take care of this piece in the meantime. :) Those sizing changes don’t apply to the CWC Trench yet - that will be updated when we relaunch CWC!
