C.P. Company introduce the Flatt Nylon Utility Overshirt for the latest season for an overly worn spin on the utilitarian silhouette.

Well it’s official C.P. Company are back at it for 2024. Did they ever stop? Probably not. With loads more futuristic fabric innovation yet to come, campaign collaborations with Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus as well as Manchester’s very own Eve Carol Kelly, not to mention the celebrated Metropolis series today we’re just focusing on the C.P. Company Flatt Nylon Utility Overshirt. As usual with C.P. it’s not just your average overshirt. From the garment dyed genius & C.P. Company founder Massimo Osti aka the “Godfather of Sportswear” the legacy of the Chester Perry brand now lives under the direction of his son, Lorenzo Osti. Something like the equivalent of Michael Corleone taking over from his father Vito in the Godfather, instead of racketeering & smashing windows its military silhouettes, sportswear & garment engineering. There’s load more to come this season from the legendary Italian brand so be sure to keep posted at mint.

If there’s one thing the likes of C.P. Company have really set the bar for over their 50 years plus reign it’s the humble overshirt. Some people just don’t get them or how to wear them. The military overshirt really made its mark in the jungles of Vietnam in the 1960s as well as an association with counter culture. Coming a bit closer to home the overshirt became a bit of a mainstay in Manchester thanks to vintage shops & army surplus stores dotted around the seedy streets of the Northern Quarter before the tote bags & the Bondi Bowls. Oversized fits, military inspiration & Manchester’s very own baggy scene allowed the overshirt to blossom to become the key wardrobe staple it is today.

Now introduced for the latest season the C.P. Company Flatt Nylon Utility Overshirt looks to classic utilitarian designs for that celebrated C.P. aesthetic we still can’t get enough of. Featuring their latest Flatt Nylon fabric which is emerized, or sanded, for a unique worn look. The garment dyed fabric boasts a softer matte like finish similar to a fabric that has been worn or washed numerous times. Other highlights include four functional pockets to the front in classic utilitarian style and of course the signature lens branding to the left sleeve.
