The Knowmatic Hoodie: a Limited Edition Designed by jeffstaple for SeV
Born of a collaboration between fashion designer jeffstaple of Staple Design and SCOTTEVEST, the Knowmatic Hoodie is the world’s most fashionable and functional hoodie, available only in this limited edition of 350 pieces. The hoodie is made from amazingly soft microfleece and is designed with hip, electronically-connected, on-the-go/in-the-know “nomads” in mind… hence, the Knowmatic Hoodie.
The Knowmatic Hoodie is the perfect union of cutting-edge fashion and tech-enabled clothing functionality and includes tech and travel features never found in one piece of clothing. Directly inspired by early 20th century dazzle camouflage – used to distort the shape of WWII Navy ships – the exterior pattern is unique to this limited edition item and was designed by jeffstaple. The Knowmatic Hoodie includes the highly engineered pockets that SCOTTEVEST is known for, and many other unique touches that convert it into a mobile command center for the Knowmatic lifestyle:
15 pockets to store all your urban adventure gear
- Exterior Pockets: Handwarmer pockets with magnetic closures that are safe for devices, Coin pockets, Subtle Side Seam pockets and one Sleeve pocket
- Interior Pockets: Pen pockets, a Chest pocket and one Secret pocket (shhhh….)
- Specialty Pockets: Two PadPockets™ – large enough to hold an iPad Mini or Phablet in any size hoodie, and engineered to balance the weight. Eyeglass pocket – the pocket itself is made of a lens cleaning chamois material, for keeping your glasses and touch screens smudge free. Interior Clear Touch phone pocket – see and control your touchscreen phone through the clear material without ever taking it out of your pocket.
- Includes the patented Personal Area Network (PAN) licensed from TEC-Technology Enabled Clothing® to run headphone wires from pockets on the inside of the jacket. For true nomads, battery packs can be connected to your devices from one pocket to another.
- Adjustable hood with built-in “DO NOT DISTURB” sleeper mask flap when you need to grab some well-deserved sleep in flight
- 2-way, high-quality, contrast-colored zipper
- The only hoodie in the world with this custom dazzle camo pattern! There may be some variation in the pattern from hoodie to hoodie, which is part of this product’s uniqueness.
- Incredibly soft 100% Poly Microfleece. Machine washable, dry flat.
- Available exclusively through SCOTTEVEST.com and jeffstaple’s Reed Space NYC boutique. Limited edition of 350. When they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
