Unstructured Jackets for Summer

The unstructured jacket is a perfect solution to summer time heat when a formal appearance is still needed. What to look for: unlined, or partial lining; no padding; fabric should be cottons, linens, or tropical wool. Tailoring is particularly important to get the look just right, as the jacket will drape from the shoulders. The inevitable wrinkles can be easily steamed out at the end of the day.

Men’s Ex – A Study of Italian Style

February’s issue of Men’s Ex is a brief study of Italian style. I’ve scanned a few parts from it, and the first couple of pages explain the differences between the tailoring styles of the various regions by looking at different parts of the suit, such as how the sleeves are set in or how open the quarters are. I should point out though, that these generalizations are not always so black and white.
