MA.STRUM, the collaborative brand from American designer Donrad Duncan, former creative director of Victorinox, and Italy’s renowned Massimo Osti Studio, recently came out with a cool new jacket ideally suited to cooler-weather excursions.

We came across it while perusing a preview of the spring 2013 offerings (see below), but unfortunately there’s a long way to go before the weather gets tolerable again.

The Hooded UV Shield Visor Jacket, as it’s known in full, is made from a matte-finish Japanese twill developed exclusively for the brand, with an integral UV Shield Visor.

Complementing the technical aspects of the garment, the style is still classically inclined, in homage to some of the vintage pieces found in the impressive Osti archive.

Of course, none of those had an iPod pocket…
