As part of our latest SS21 collection, we have partnered with long-standing friends and Toronto based stockist Uncle Otis. Together we present the Uncle Otis x Universal Works Frogskin Camo Kyoto Work Jacket.
We spoke to Vince Lai store manager and buyer of Uncle Otis on the collaboration, “We couldn't be happier to announce our Future Friendship collaboration with Universal Works. A culmination of our relationship with co founders David & Stephanie and the rest of their team, this jacket shares the same joy and enthusiasm that our reunions are filled with. We are proud to have the entire Universal Works team help us mark our 30th anniversary with an extra special piece.
"We have been working with our great friends in Toronto “Uncle Otis", for 8 or 9 years now, so when they asked us to work on a special project with them this season we were delighted. After working together on our ideas we were happy that the collaboration became something quite unique and special. The Kyoto Work Jacket is a newer style in our stable of contemporary workwear but it has quickly become a firm favourite. This reversible camo version is for me a nod to the versatility of the original military fabric but also a great fun treatment of both the style and fabric." says Universal Works co-founder and designer David Keyte.
The Uncle Otis x Universal Works Kyoto Work Jacket features a wrap front with internal and external ties, 3 front pockets, 1 internal chest pocket, contrast collar and hem on the reversible side of the jacket.
