"The Charles Coat is an exclusive design I worked on with Nakagomi-san of Coherence. It came from my recent interest in shotguns and shooting. I don't have the heart to shoot animals but I do enjoy the challenge of shooting clays. When I first went shooting, I would wear a Barbour, which is a fine garment, but I wanted The Armoury to have its own take on it which resulted in the Charles Coat. As with all Coherence garments, which are named after famous historical characters, we named the coat after Charles Mingus, the legendary jazz bassist and composer who famously once shot his shotgun indoors. Personally, I refer to the coat as the "Clay Hunter" as we already have a "City Hunter" jacket that has its own country origins but modernized for city use as well."
