Lavenham sometimes does, but this season, only uses it to make a fairly ugly quilted peacoat called the Whitmore. You can look it up on their website's lookbook. If you scour around, you might be able to find a Liddesdale kind of jacket in that material. They're famous for quilted jackets like that, and I've seen them use that kind of material in the past.

Other than that, Italian luxury brands such as Loro Piana (as mentioned above), Cucinelli and Borrelli also sometimes come out with quilted jackets in that material, but they're exorbitantly expensive.

Addendum: Here's one by Lavenham, old collection

The matte Liddesdale'ish coat from Barbour is called Eskdale.

on edit: Drake's just released a (non-matte, AFAICT) quilted coat. Click.

While we're on the subject, does anybody know who makes this quilted jacket?

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This is half of probably the best-looking one I've ever seen, from Pitti '12.

No, but you can message the photographer - crazy pangolin

Enrico Mandelli had something similar two years ago. I don't know if they make something similar still, but the only place I knew that carried them in the US was De Corato, and I think they've dropped them in favor of some other Italian outerwear brands.

FWIW, I think these kind of quilted blazers only look good in over stylized product shots. They look terrible and gimmicky when actually worn.

it's 100% linen, but it tends to lose it's shape over time - it's a loose weave and it gets saggy. I wash it and tumble dry it occasionally and it shrinks back up into shape, but the loose saggy shape is part of it's appeal.

Those quilted blazers just look silly to me.

I have a linen cardigan that I really like. Another option for shoulder season sweaters is hemp.

i tend to agree, i find them better suited for light jackets and windbreakers.

tho, in a very pitti type of way, they can rock hard as a SC, if done in teh right pitti way.

Got into a discussion with my tailor about lower rib monograms. Lately I have been favoring them over cuff monograms and have been looking to get them on a new batch of shirts I'm getting ready to commission. My tailor argued that the left rib monogram looked too busy when the shirt has a pocket. He also argued that a rib monogram should only be on a shirt that is intended to be worn with a jacket.

I know both arguments are likely to the letter of the law, but I'm interested to know thoughts here about rib monograms with a chest pocket and/or wearing shirts with rib monograms casually (i.e. sans-jacket).

I think your tailor makes good points.

Then you for sure won't be a fan of the blue OCBD I got with a rib monogram devil.gif

Yes, that's a safe bet.
post #447 of 1898
i would not get a rib monogram with a pocket. i do not have any issue with them when there is no pocket. would agree it best left for wearing with a jacket. i do not like cuff monograms. i am a drone.
post #448 of 1898
Why are you getting a monogram on your shirts? furthermore, why are you getting such an obviously displayed monogram as right smack on the front of your shirt?
post #449 of 1898
The monogram affectation, as far as I can trace it, is a side-effect of a trad or preppy or WASP or whatever upbringing. Always been surrounded by them and they've always been the norm (to be clear, we're talking about a monogram that's less than 1/4" tall). The lower rib location is a little different and honestly, for better or worse, inspired by Ronald Reagan, as that was his location of choice. That said I think the location isn't all that uncommon. I know PG, for one, wears rib monograms...

Oh then if PG does it...
