Women's Black Waxed Cotton Shell Jacket
The Black-Forest Riding Hoodie is a variation from our popular Little Red Riding Hoodie. Here designer Janice Mao describes her fairy-tale-inspired concept:
With the help of Betabrand's design team, we've done a lot of tinkering to the Little Red Riding Hoodie since it was first introduced in the Think Tank.
We took all your comments to heart, worked to make the hoodie fit just right, and sourced the best possible fabric. This waxed cotton comes from the British Millerain Company, which has been churning out incredible fabrics since 1880. The charcoal shell has a non-porous rainproof finish that British Millerain Co. has called out as perfect for sunshine or rain.
I hope you'll enjoy this hoodie as much as I do, and I'm certain that you'll appreciate all the effort we put into it.
