The humble fisherman’s cagoule has had a funny existence over the past couple of years. An almost grassroots level revolution, spearheaded by the gang at Albam, saw it rise to prominence for winter 2011.
Now the fashion overlords seem to have also taken notice and anyone who’s anyone has a cagoule in their range for spring 2013.
You’re free to throw four-figure sums at a Louis Vuitton version if your budget allows, but we reckon you won’t go too far wrong with this effort from Norse Projects x Elka.
Elka are a Danish brand specialising in rainwear, so you know the experts are involved. Not only is it nicer than many of the cagoules out there, it’s also discounted as past season since Norse Projects were ahead of the curve!
Yes Squire is the men's fashion blog for the modern gent who likes his clothing with vintage twist.
