Wraith Mk II
Not one soul out of doors, the world is asleep;
And the Wraith on silent feet does creep.
On it lurks, stalking through the night
And its solitary council keeps ‘til first light.
Reintroducing the Wraith! Inspired by the cold smell of snow to come and by tattered leaves blowing in a grey landscape, the Wraith will steal into your heart as soon as you try it on. This elegant design is the coziest that Volante Design has ever made. It is a custom made cotton sweatshirt fleece that wears beautifully and only gets softer with age. The dramatic collar and carefree folds look stunning combined with our Automata Vest or any other jacket of your choice. The kangaroo pocket is both spacious and unobtrusive. Both the sleeves, hood, and waistband have a raw edge that make this sweatshirt truly unique. Completely machine washable and pre-shrunk, the Wraith has quickly become a staple of our wardrobes. Get it for yours today.
We call this cut Unifit as opposed to “unisex” because the term unisex as is currently defined is “a shape that is designed to be suitable for both sexes” and suitable just doesn’t cut it for us. The Wraith is available in 10 sizes that will cover the measurements of our Women’s size 33 to our Men’s size 51. This is made possible by the side panels of the Wraith being entirely of stretch cotton.

I'll give my only criticism of this item straight off the bat, as it is so minor I feel it doesn't bear too much warrant. Due to the item not having an elasticated hem like a traditional hoodie, it can ride up a little, making the item somewhat draughty, an issue perhaps worsened for me due to having a rather long torso. Under any circumstances, I would have requested for Volante to swap the item for me, but considering both that customs held the item so long that the item took longer than anticipated to arrive, and that I have worn the jacket twice to give a solid review, I feel this is unfair to do so. And now, onto ALL the positives. WOW is a very good way to sum this hoodie up. Even for one so fitted the elastic segments of the pattern permit wonderful freedom of movement, even swinging your arms about feels as easy as wearing a nice loose t-shirt. As for the main fabric, it may sound a little contradictory but it has a pleasant roughness, and feels honestly like it would never wear out no matter what you do. The switching is actually quite wonderful to look at, with the gold thread making a pleasant cyberpunk style contrast with the black fabrics and the shapes make for a unique silhouette. This is not even getting into the hood. The deep cowl hood is a wonderful change for those of us who might like our necks covered up and our faces more protected, but it folds down so nicely when not in use you never feel especially constricted. Overall, a solid and very desirable product from the Volante team. Just bear in mind about where your waist falls. Enjoy everyone!
The Wraith is comfy, sleek, and stylish. Two of those words I never expected to use for a hoodie. I like that the hood can be folded to be more of a cowl, and I of course enjoy the attention to detail.
I live this new piece from you guys, the size I ordered didn't fit but customer service helped me out! P.S. this hoodie runs a little small
I wish shipping to Canada wasn't so expensive, otherwise I would get one in every colour. It fits so damn good.
It came in the mail yesterday and I've been wearing it around the house ever since! It's too hot to wear outside for now, but come fall and winter you bet it'll be my favorite thing to wear out. It's very comfy, and looks great. My one and only complaint is the sleeves are a bit too long. But that's not their fault, I'm just really small and have short arms haha, I end up with most of my long sleeved clothes like that. All in all I'm very happy with it!
Hi Wendy, Glad you like your Wraith and thank you for the review! As a note, we offer sleeve shortening for $40 or we can send you a bobbin of matching thread at no traditional charge, if you have a trusted local tailor or friend who sews. You can reach out via email to discuss either of those more if needed!
