Separates become a very important aspect in creating a versatile wardrobe. One of the keys to creating a successful separate look is the ability to harmoniously blend fabrics of different colours, textures and backgrounds to create unique and individual statements about oneself. As a gentleman or lady diversifies his/her wardrobe into casual realms, a sport jacket becomes a necessary and key piece to which the wearer express themselves.
In the creation above, the sport jacket carries both warm and cool tones in a traditional windowpane watch pattern. Due to the multifaceted tonage in this piece, the sport jacket can be paired easily with other garments in the wearer's wardrobe. A sport jacket of this nature is very comfortable going from a semi-formal look in the office to casually hanging around town with jeans and polo.
Ideally it would be advantageous to have sets of jackets suited to the seasons including the ever classic blazer. However, this sophisticated example is a trans-seasonal piece which will carry the wearer into spring, fall and winter. This is achieved through being crafted out of a wonderful tweed cashmere blend by the mill of Holland & Sherry.
Some of the details exhibited on this sport jacket include 1/4” saddle stitching and French tacks along with a soft deconstructed shoulder for a jacket that feels like a sweater rather than stiff. The jacket is also internally made with a canvas that is softer rather than stiff to give it a character of comfort and ease above all else.
