It enhances your posture, sets you apart and keeps you warm in style. The sport jacket – fall wardrobe’s most transformative garment – delivers the perfect balance between formal and casual in the men’s fashion world.
The fit: the sport jacket is more casual and therefore should be more loose, allowing for easy body movements and leaving enough room for layered clothing.
The fabric: the sport jacket can be made from wools and cottons of various weights and weaves. Some of the most common weaves utilized are tweed, flannel, corduroy, camel hair, seersucker and a wide range of worsted fabrics in patterns such as sharkskin, houndstooth, bird’s eye and of course solid colors.
Style: a favorite aspect of a sport jacket, and what sets it apart clearly from a blazer, is the wide range of style options available. But the best part is that it DOES NOT match with your trousers. Many of these style options can be traced to the history of how it was originally worn and used; first making its appearance in the hunting & shooting arenas one hundred years ago, it was designed with easily accessible patch pockets and leather patches on the shoulder and elbows to prevent wear. Other style options include ticket pockets, leather buttons and building the sports jacket to have expandable pleats on the back to give greater flexibility in movement.
