Fit of Postalco Clothing
If all rocks and trees were the same shape, the world would be disturbingly boring.
Our bodies vary
A person’s body changes over time, and even within a single day. If we want our clothes to last longer they should fit a larger range of bodies. Features like sleeves that roll up easily, offset shoulder seams, and shapes that drape allow our clothing to fit more people, more comfortably.
Our functional garments are designed for exceptional freedom of movement in daily living. Mobility is a basic human need. The engineering of the clothing is complicated, but it’s designed to be used naturally.
Why do we make so few sizes?
We pattern our clothing to fit as many bodies as we can. Less size variation also means less wasted fabric and less overproduction.
Clothing for men? Or women?
Postalco items have always been non gendered. Beginning with the very first Legal Envelopes we made back in 2000.

Millions of air pockets
Heat comes from right inside our body. The jacket only keeps our warmth from floating away. It traps a layer of air around you. Millions of air pockets are trapped next to your skin by the natural shape of wool fibers. Wool is one of the world's most technically advanced materials.
Sweating regulates our body temperature but wear clothing that doesn't breathe and you might find yourself soaked from drying sweat. The natural properties of wool give odor-resistance and breathability.
Problem: down is often pulled from live birds. The only way to be sure that birds are not being mistreated for our jackets is not to use down at all.
