The Shirt Jacket Thread - Page 3
Yeah, sort of like this one:
The plan is rounded flap pockets on top, slash pockets on the bottom. This kind of flap on the top pockets, sort of like a Pendleton or a 40s sport shirt, with a hidden loop and button:
I like that design, Jesse, esp for the fabrics you described getting. I've been going back on forth on whether to get two more shirt jackets made in tweed, or one in tweed and one in moleskin. I was a bit ambivalent about the moleskin, but thought variety of fabrics might be nice. It seems much more appealing in the design you choose, however, rather than the standard four-pocket design I've been obsessing over.
Ha. I was actually going to choose navy moleskin, actually, which looks a bit like that. Green felt to militaristic.
This dude looks pretty fucking good, nice "get off my lawn" face. Who makes the shirt?
One of our former members whom I sometimes have a meal with likes those military inspired casual jackets, many Italian and French brands make one so the field is pretty vast. I think GDL had a super great Borrelli one
Best ones in my opinion are short, made of wool, and have a small collar. They need to look something like a shirt, and get away from the safari jacket look.
No cravatte, no pipe and no pith helmet.
The Epaulet CPO shirt and the Billy Reid Wheeler are my two favorites.
well I think it is less formal than a tweed jacket and also potentially lighter for warmer climates. Also it's more of an unusual piece, and therefore
a bit more distinctive.
I wouldn't consider it to be classic menswear, or even particularly functional, but I could certainly see myself using it to introduce texture to a more monochrome outfit. Without wishing to be cruel, most of the outfits in this thread look a little too much like the wearer is expecting a trip up the Ganges to go awry.
