We think this beautifully tailored jacket is about 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. And it is a real snip to boot at £133 for you as a Member, instead of the full price of £250.
Gurteen have been tailors in Suffolk since 1xxx and love fine English tweed. 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 lining, so you can stash your keys, wallet and mobile phone with ease. It is from Gurteen’s Esquire range and comes in three fittings and the following chest sizes: Short and regular in 38-50in chest and long in 38-48in chest. Please order soon as this will be a popular jacket and it will soon sell out.
