Review: Koyono BlackCoat-T shirt (English version)
At first sight, The BlackCoat-T looks like a normal T-shirt. However, the zipper (especially my white shirt with red zipper) centered at the front attracts attention. It gives access to two compartments on the sides. These compartments are large enough for things such as a cell phone, MP3 player or a Tungsten|T3 in an aluminium case. Concluding: most small devices should fit. The shirts are made of a stout kind of cotton, and available in black or white with a red zipper, but Koyono is working on a model with a zipper having the same color as the shirt. You have to pay for the quality, because a BlackCoat-T costs US$ 35,- (five pieces cost US$ 125,- in a multi-color bundle). Of course cost of transmission is added. Since Koyono does not have any dealers in Europe except one in Italy, that is another US$ 13,00 regardless of the number of shirts. That is a total of € 39,00 for one shirt or € 112,35 for five shirts, which boils down to € 22,47 for one shirt.
Usage of the BlackCoat-T
Imagine you normally hold your cell phone in your left hand. Then it is convenient to put it in the compartment on the right. Open the zipper, put the cell phone in and push it downwards until it is at the bottom. To retrieve it it is better to use both hands. You push the cell phone up with your right hand, and with your left hand you retrieve it through the opened zipper. The opening is fairly tight, so going in with your hand is less practical, but Koyono explains this as follows:
Other Koyono products
The BlackCoat-T is the newest clothing with special compartments. Koyono also offers the slimmy, which they claim to be the smallest purse available; the BlackCoat Titanium, a lightweight rain-coat with compartments, and the BlackCoat Classic, a jacket with a removable bodywarmer with 11 coat-pockets, including a special magazine compartment. So there are enough possibilities.
If you’re a follower of fashion and do not mind to stand out from the crowd, then the BlackCoat-T is a striking shirt for unstrikingly carrying small stuff, like your cell phone, pda, credit cards, some money, MP3 player, etc. Unfortunately there’s no dealer in The Netherlands yet, so including the shipping cost, this is an expensive shirt, but wearing this will show your individuality.
Open to improvement
