Every Wednesday, The FADER Style team asks employees and employers at our favorite shops around the world what their most cherished in-store item is at that exact moment. This week, we talked with smart staffer and co-owner Devon Carlson of Fremont in Los Angeles.

The Clemont coat in this picture is 1 of 8 hand waxed coats that we have in the store. This is my favorite piece in the store because it really speaks about the aesthetic of the SS09 collection. The coat is clean and sophisticated, with details that set it apart without being overly done. It was also a pain to make, getting a light color waxed isn't too fun, but the result is clean and crisp. The fabric is a light weight triple over-dyed canvas with natural fiber Corozo buttons, it was assembled in an amazing family owned military factory in Chicago.
This coat is available at our store in Los Angeles and Opening Ceremony, NYC.
