Created for the winter 2012-13 season, this Holland and Sherry Sherry Kash cropped casual country sport jacket by Trend Custom Tailors references the traditional English shooting jackets with a right shoulder guard leather detail.
Four leather-welted pockets adorn the front of this jacket, including the barchetta (“little boat”) curved breast pocket and the ticket pocket, adding a stylish and contemporary twist. The natural shoulder is reinforced by strategically placed hand-tacks.
Eyelet details in the exterior leather-work continue into the laced interior light blue lining of this quarter-lined jacket with burnt orange contrast piping and multi-coloured stripe sleeve lining. The leather-backed sleeves run the length of the forearm from the elbow to the cuff and highlight the working surgeon’s cuffs with leather buttonholes.
Suede-edged leather inserts are echoed in the shaped cutaway designs of the pieced melton undercollar with contrast stitching in light blue and yellow, a thoughtful visual nod to the interior linings. The jacket also features semi-notched clover lapels and a single monogrammed covered button, additional features of this finely crafted garment.
