Cav Empt is a Japanese streetwear label that often puts out eccentric collections and its latest creation is a PVC-coated jacket that's well-suited to those looking to stay dry in rainy weather without compromising their sense of style.

With a simple construction that's taken from timeless workwear staples, the pieces have a utilitarian look that's further enhanced by the use of technical material. Although the PVC-coated jackets are mostly black, a few accents of light brown add some contrast to the design.

Also helping with this is a corduroy collar, which diverts from the rest of the PVC-coated material to reinstate the workwear style that its cut draws from. All in all, Cav Empt's latest is a masculine streetwear alternative to the often repetitive rain gear genre. In addition to carrying a unique aesthetic, the jackets are built to last for years.
