Gurteen: best price for this smart tailored jacket in pure wool tweed: elegant shades of unripe corn with sand and fuchsia: 40in regular
We think this beautifully tailored jacket is one of the most handsome we’ve seen. It is expertly cut in a luxurious smooth tweed by our English tailors Gurteen, with an elegant line. It looks and feels made to measure—and though the cloth is a medium weight this is far from being at the expense of high quality and fine tailoring. It means a chap can look smart yet cool whatever the weather. from Gurteen’s Esquire range and it is a real snip to boot at £109 for you as a Member, instead of the full price of £255 or more.
This is a superb example of their excellent eye for classical yet contemporary pure wool herringbone cloth—an elegant shade of unripe corn, a lovely green with a vertical line of blush pink and a faint horizontal dash of sand. It works well with many colours, from blues, reds and browns to greens, greys and stone, for smart occasions and casual.
The result is an undeniably elegant and masculine jacket, giving the perfect look and weight for cooler summer days or in-between seasons. The jacket is very well cut in classic two-button style, single-breasted with slant front pockets including that mark of sartorial style, a ticket pocket, all flapped and jetted, a slant breast pocket and notched lapels. It has side vents and a four-button cuff. There are four internal pockets in the smart fuschia silky lining, so you can stash your keys, wallet and mobile phone with ease.
In 40in chest, regular fitting.
RRP £255. CCUK £109 including UK mainland delivery.
Gurteen is an English family run tailoring business established in Haverhill, Suffolk, in 1784, where it is still situated today. The company started life making smocks which was the general garment at that time and as the years moved on, so too did the clothing. From making Army uniforms during World War One and World War Two, to measuring up and making the suits for the English Rugby team, the company has always met a challenge. The business is still retained and managed by family members, and the passion for men’s tailoring burns as fiercely today as it did back in 1784.
