The Jacket Collection AW18: Versatility Made Flesh

Our AW18 sports jacket collection is a Savile Row masterclass in how to get the most out of a tailored jacket.

15 November

The Chester Barrie navy corduroy Elverton is constructed of 100% cotton, giving a hint of vintage with the quality of a new cotton garment. The melange weave of darker and lighter blues means that the jacket retains a multiplicity and vibrancy of character. This jacket will look at ease at a dinner party, a bar, at work and even down the pub.

The jacket is emblematic of what new Chester Barrie AW18 collection represents. The vast range of fabrics, colours, weaves and cuts in the latest collection reflect the wonderful versatility of the jackets themselves.

The use of hopsack in this collection brings out the relaxed, irregularity that is required to close the bridge between formality and whatever else you want to throw at your jacket. The soft texture of the green Elverton jacket means it looks cool anywhere, meanwhile the fit remains as sharp as a button.

The Navy Houndstooth Jacket is perhaps the most beautiful and intricate melange of pattern and irregularity. The underlying houndstooth, a duotone textile pattern characterized by broken checks, represents a classical symmetry, but is then softened by the irregular lengths of yarn of the bouclé, giving the material a lovely, soft texture.

In this sense, the suit fulfils classic, formality in a way that still looks wearable daily. Not to mention the alpaca wool that will keep you comfortable and relaxed the whole day through.

Every man should own a jacket that can do it all. With Chester Barrie, this ideal materialises.
