Formal jackets

Formal jackets for men

Our formal jackets are garments that not only comes in a variety of shapes, forms and colors but also several different constructions. You will be able to choose from half-canvas, full canvas and unconstructed jackets to name a few and each one will bring its own level of quality and formality.

Formal jacket fabrics

The fabric has a great impact on the formality of the jacket  and a rule of thumb is that the more luster there is in the fabric, the more formal the garment will be.
A great example of this is the super 150’s twill fabric, characterized by its high luster and elegant impression.

The formal jacket is, depending on what fabric you chose, is a great garment to break up. If you are looking for a formal jacket that is versatile and easy to combine with other garments the basic rule is to chose a fabric that match other pieces in your wardrobe.

Design choices that set the style

The second most important thing to consider when looking for a formal jacket is the construction of the jacket. A fully canvassed jacket will give you a far more formal approach than a unconstructed jacket. The full canvas will give a great structure to the jacket and will cause the jacket to form around the wearer’s chest over time. You will experience the feeling of a perfect fit after you have worn the jacket a couple of times.

Some might say that a double-breasted jacket is by default more formal than a single-breasted jacket but that doesn’t always have to be the case. As mentioned before the fabric will play a bigger part in the level of formality than the closure.

Design choices such as lapels and pockets will, of course, also affect the level of formality. A jet- or flap- pocket will create a more formal look than a patch pocket.
