Man of Moods (MofM) "Mura-Ito" Oxford Cotton Washed Jackets


Among our 1st shipment from Man of Moods (MofM) spring summer 2010 collection, one of our favorites are the items made with MofM's "mura-ito" washed oxford fabric because of their beautiful colors and texture. This fabric was used on a trench coat, pants, and the above jackets and available in 2 different colors, black (left) and khaki (right). Both colors are beautiful with vintage look from post-production wash. Because the color differences are very subtle, we do a side-by-side comparison to better illustrate the colors.

The oxford cotton fabric is made with "mura-ito" which are threads with random thickness creating dimension in the fabric. The oxford fabric provides softness, polish, excellent breathability, and wrinkle resistance. The post-production wash adds further dimensions and characteristics. Above photo is black.
