As a fashion category jackets have eclipsed suits thanks to a more casual dress code and to the versatile nature of a garment that can be dressed up or down as required – a quality of paramount importance today. Jackets also seamlessly transition from the work week to weekend, and from dressy to jeans making jackets the indispensable component of a modern wardrobe.
Autumnal brown, bordeaux and forest green are some of the fashion forward color trends in this exciting collection, with pattern direction focused on checks and plaids from prince of wales to gun club checks, as well as Scottish inspired tartans. An attractive wool mesh assortment in 11 fashion and classic plain colors is also included for a more modern interpretation of the blazer, perhaps tailored as an updated ‘soft coat’.
Snowflake IX features slightly heavier, milled finish cloths that resonate as true fall and winter fabrics. Loftier, bigger yarns in an array of qualities from Super 130’s merino wool to natural fiber blends of wool and cashmere, and wool and silk provide a luxurious hand and cozy, autumnal texture.
Bouclé, heather and soft flannel effects are on display together with rich burgundies, vibrant blues and rustic earthtones. The soft, rich textures of these fabrics are particularly suited to the trend toward softer construction so popular in men’s tailoring today.See The collection
