Old Mate© UNISEX Hood Anorak®

Regular price $75.00 Sale

UNISEX Black Hood with white print of Old Mate© design on its back.

(colloquial, Australia, New Zealand) In general, any person, whose specific identity can be deduced from context.

“Old mate dropped by, and we watched the cricket for a bit.”

“Mate” is a popular word for friend. And while it's used in other English-speaking countries around the world, it has a special connection to Australia. In the past, mate has been used to address men, but it can be gender neutral.

In Australia, you'll also hear mate used in an ironic sense.

Designed and handprinted by Sean for Anorak® in our little studio next to our shop - Blackbird Corner.

Please note: each hood is hand printed by Sean, so there may be small inconsistencies in print and colour as he is only human. 
The position of the print on each hood may also slightly vary (for the same reason.) But that's why you're buying an independent designer's creation yeah?
Photos are taken in natural light, please consider that colours may vary between monitors.
