Shirt jackets

Shirt jackets

Our shirt jackets has a relaxed fit with patch pockets, meaning the pockets are on the outside of the garment. This creates a more relaxed overall look which together with the collar brings it all together to create an in-between (formal and casual) style. It is perfect for your casual occasions, but still leaves you feeling well-dressed. As always, we’ll create a fit that suits your personal preferences.

If you’re a customer at Blugiallo – we’ve already created a fit for you for our shirt jackets – you are ready to order. However, if you are new to our concept – we suggest you start by creating your measurements through our online measurement process. It only takes a couple of minutes of your time and even though it sounds magic we are so sure it works that we give a 100% fit guarantee.

Why get a shirt jacket?

The buzz around the shirt jacket has been emerging more and more lately, and it’s not for nothing. Due to its versatility and for its stylish yet relaxed look and feel, it has become a go to for many, all year around.

Layering is an essential part of dressing during trans-seasonal periods like fall and spring. The shirt jacket is the ultimate in-between jacket with the ability to transform into the garment you need. Once you begun to use a shirt jacket we are sure it will be a staple piece in your closet and quickly becomes a natural go-to.

The aim when we developed our shirt jackets was to bridge the gap between casual and formal. In its segment, the shirt jacket is quite elegant, yet it’s way more casual than a formal jacket. We like to describe it as casual tailoring. Unlike our formal jackets, our shirt jackets are completely unconstructed. This contributes to a garment with a nice, casual, drape and an extra soft feeling for the wearer. In our opinion, the shirt jacket is the perfect layering piece when a suit or a jacket is just too formal.

Our three favorite shirt jackets

We’ve handpicked three different fabric qualities with different characteristics that are perfect for our shirt jackets. The first one is heavy cotton twill that express casual elegance. Thanks to the matte surface of the cotton fabric, it is versatile and easy to combine. It has the potential to be a true go-to piece in your wardrobe.

The second fabric is corduroy with a blend between wool and cotton. This gives the shirt jacket a nice luster and a super soft feeling thanks to the wool. It is simply a modern interpretation of a classic fabric. Corduroy garments in general, and the corduroy shirt jacket in particular, are statement pieces in the modern man’s wardrobe.

Last, but not least, we’re happy to present the wool and cashmere blend. This fabric creates a shirt jacket that express contemporary luxury like few others. Thanks to its luxurious feeling these shirt jackets works on most occasions. If you are looking for a garment that can handle the transition from the office to drinks and dinner with friends, this is the one.

If you are interested in creating a completely unique shirt jacket from a special fabric, you can also schedule an appointment to one of our showrooms or online. Our team will help you find the perfect fabric through our ‘Cut Length’ service. ‘Cut length’ meaning fabrics sourced directly from the mills to our tailors to create your garment.

Looks that we love to create wearing the shirt jacket is for example by wearing a nice pair of our selvedgedenim in combination with our knitted pieces and topping it off with either a great pair of sneakers or for a more dressed up look, a pair of loafers.

For colder winter days, the shirt jacket works great as a stylish option for an indoor jacket. Wear it with flannel trousers, a contemporary shirt and a pair of suede loafers to find the perfect balance between formal and causal. In other words, the shirt jacket is a piece you can trust – all year around.
