Aether Polar Trench Preview – The Design Details

The Aether Polar Trench is a unique fusion of ideas. Technical materials and processes, obsessive attention to design and construction details, combined with a tailored cut; This is one of those rare projects in which the sum of the parts is greater than the individual components.

The Polar Trench came about as a true design and development collaboration of Aether and FYi. The intent was to create the ultimate urban trench coat, that is as comfortable and elegant, as it is weatherproof. By utilizing seam-sealed waterproof / breathable textiles on the outside, combined with feathery Primaloft insulation and buttery lining fabrics on the inside; The Polar Trench has become something special.

Design details include seamless laminated pocket flaps on the external chest and hand pockets, internal iPhone pocket, internal security pocket, quilted lining with a fully constructed interior trim, and zippered cuff gussets on the sleeves. This is a warm and waterproof Trench that looks elegant in any environment. Click on the pics below to see the full size image.


The Polar Trench has become my favorite piece in the Aether collection this season, and will be my go-to jacket for foul weather urban style.
