Springtime.... new jacket :-)

Hi :)

Finally, I had the time to do something new. Although, we are still waiting for spring, I’m already prepared with a new springtime jacket :-)

For me, it was the first time to come out of the classical corner, do something creative, something new. Well, this jacket is inspired by a Chinese fashion site I saw.

For this garment, I used a slim fit basic pattern of mine (Mller & Sohn) and just adjusted it to get this casual and special look. There is no horsehair inlays, just a bit of fusibles. The shoulder got some leather insets and also the back of the collar is made by leather.I used a very light weight fabric, which made the whole work process a bit difficult… especially by setting in the sleeves.

If you want to see more pictures, don’t hesitate with visiting my blog :)


So long

    Wow! I am so inspired by this design. I love when someone takes classic men’s wear and gives it a bit of flair. I may have to have a go at something like this. Impeccable work as usual.

    It’s a great jacket! Such a good mix of the creative and the classic (which I always think is more difficult in menswear)
