This is a more decadent version of one of our best selling jacket styles, the safari jacket. The left breast pocket is angled for easy frequent access for right handers, and is based on WW2 dispatch riders' angled map pockets on their coats. There is enough space for a city map, a small mobile, a cigar or three, or a pair of sunglasses.
All pockets have deep bellows allowing them to carry all of one's daily carry. All buttons are made of corozo, also know as vegetable ivory, a nut from which the button is carved. The "wood" grain can be clearly seen in the shade of these buttons.
The lapel closes, for warmth, and to keep the elements out. There is a functioning half belt on the back of the jacket, which when tightened, keeps the fronts further apart, perfect for what the Italians call a "passeggiata" or stroll through town.
The fit is body conscious but not restrictive. The shorter coat length makes it ideal for running errands and one doesn’t sit on the coat when seated. A great weekend jacket.
This version is made in a special English cashmere that in some light looks green, and in other light brown. It is soft and very strokable, and ideal for our current more casual wardrobes. The cloth is 400 grams, so between a jacket and coat weight.
This is a made to order item and is available to order in different sizes. Please contact us for sizing and purchasing.
Made of pure English cashmere, outside of Porto, Portugal.
