The G.02 Korpi Overshirt – A garment for the pursuit of calm and solitude
Inspired by the countless weeks we've spent in southern Finland's national parks, the G.02 Korpi Overshirt is a garment made for the quintessentially Finnish pursuit of the calm and solitude that nature offers. This pursuit is described beautifully by Tove Jansson's character Snufkin in the Moomin series. The ultimate serenity Snufkin has achieved through their nomadic and minimalist life philosophy makes Snufkin like a Finnish quasi-mythological version of the ancient Greek Stoic philosophers or the Buddha himself.
With design and functional cues from traditional flannels and field shirts, the G.02 Korpi Overshirt is designed for the backwoods. Whether you use this piece as a mid-layer during the coldest of months or an outer layer in three-season use, it's a functional piece guaranteed to take place as a staple in your wardrobe. A reliable overshirt for life. This shirt is packed with practical utility, with zero gimmicks.

At Kasperi we're passionate about products that are made for life. The nordic functional design heritage has its roots in the efficient use of resources by necessity. Up here in the North, the population was largely self-sufficient until the mid 20th century. Thus materials and usable income were sparse, items were seen as investments and had to have the highest utility and durability.
Today, we look back at those ideals, recognizing them as necessary, albeit for different reasons. Being true to those ideals we define a quality item as a piece with high utility, that is durable and repairable. We pledge to issue garments that are designed and made to high specifications, instead of just releasing new collections all the time.
True future classics are made when items are used long and extensively by their users. True classics are known as Garments.
Size true to your size. Janne is wearing Large at 188 cm and 88 kg.

Wool repels dirt naturally so this garment will stay fresh with only airing out almost perpetually. Hand-wash in the sink in cool water with wool-specific detergent or Marseille soap avoiding hard rubbing. Rinse, press, and dry flat.
