Announcing our Neapolitan-style blazers that give you the ultimate comfort and ease. Feeling more like a favorite sweater with a tailored look, these jackets combine innovative stretch fabrics with a deconstructed shoulder and chest.
First, the fabric: a stretch cotton jersey from the Dondi mill in Italy, which specialized in these fabrics since 1970. This fabric’s unique properties are heavier and drape extremely well while also stretching with your body and feel soft to the touch. Two options are available: a thick navy jersey built for winter (above image) and a mid-blue honeycomb weave perfect for year-round (below images).
Next, because the fabric drapes so well, we’ve been able to remove the canvasing in the chest and the padding in the shoulders. This makes it feel more like a heavy knit instead of a traditional suit jacket. There’s zero “break in” period for the jacket to mould to your body.
Finally, we can offer unlined construction with finished interior seams. This lightens the jacket further, with bemberg lining applied only to the upper shoulder and sleeves. The interior panels are self-faced with beautiful interior seams, which is more time consuming and harder to make than a traditionally fully-lined suit. Combine with open patch front pockets to match the casual style and leave the interior clean.
We consider these “sweater blazers” to be a perfect travel companion as you’re able to roll them up into an overhead compartment on a plane or into your luggage. A perfect jacket that goes easily with denim, chinos and trousers and always looks professional and polished.
