Pitch is a striking coat that pairs classic cables and moss stitch with a chic silhouette. Cabled bands travel up the open fronts, unexpectedly pitching away from the center to travel diagonally down the shoulders and back, while simultaneously flowing into ribbed lapels. In woolen-spun Shelter yarn, Pitch is a timeless piece with plenty of contemporary flourish.
