The Quinque cowl is a simple looking, sleek garment for transitional weather. Designed to rest close to the skin, the Quinque uses an ultra soft, light-feeling yarn and incorporates two drawstrings for easy, casual wear. The name quinque comes from the Latin word for five, and as a name, this suits this garmentʼs understated appearance.
