Based on our popular Barchetta Blazer, we decided to simplify it even further and make it even lighter. Our blazer probably already has the lightest construction a jacket can have on the market today. We removed the facing and what little of the internals there were left, and finished the raw fabric edge with binding tape in contrast colours. The tape is not just decorative but functional as it keeps the edge of the fabric from fraying. Closure is with a snap.
This version is made of terry cloth and is the ideal jacket for the beach in summer. Coming out of the fresh water, one slips on the jacket, has one sunglasses, phone, keys and other items in the right pockets, and is already dressed to go to the bar, and dry while one waits for the bottle of rose to appear.
Available with "Bob" embroidery on breast pocket or with a plain pocket. "Bob" is our cigar smoking, sunglass wearing shark, a mythical creature dreamed up by Oscar one day.
Made of Italian towelling, outside of Porto, Portugal.
