This landscape of cables is a texture lover’s dream. The densely woven fabric of Shelter plays with scale, alternating blocks of small lattice cables and single rib to form a patchwork between cabled zigzags. Mohr features tailored shaping and smart details like double decreases that preserve the single-rib background fabric along the curve of the set-in sleeves. With its ribbed collar and trim fit, it’s the perfect little jacket for fall.
