Traditionally used to make pea coats for mariners, the dense weave of melton makes it superbly resistant to both water and wind. A meticulously constructed shirt for the inclement Canadian weather, the versatile Modern Melton Wool is a contemporary take on a timeless design—made from warm post-consumer recycled wool, it’s soft, sturdy and naturally insulating, with cozy comfort and breathability for all-day wear. As this wool has already lived a previous life—the source garments are carefully salvaged before being sorted, processed and re-woven—it features a felt-like touch that’s smoother than other wools, and it’s manufactured in a unique, dye-free process that saves water and eliminates the need for harmful chemical dyes. Anian's most durable and heaviest-weight women’s shirt, the Modern Melton is cut to fit the female form and finished with a drop-in chest pocket, single-button cuffs and a longer scooped hem that falls below the seat. A double yoke rests comfortably across the shoulders and adds additional weather protection, and an inset center-back pleat allows more freedom of motion for days on the go.
