New York, New Yo...






Every man needs at least one beautiful jacket in his wardrobe, and we finally have the pattern for you! This classic, elegant cut is ready for fall nights and holiday events. Of course, making your own suit jacket is a chance to personalize: perhaps try playing with a fun lining on the inside. We can’t wait to see what you do.

Material Notes

Wool suiting, silk lining, buttons, interfacing, shoulder pads, we also used horsehair in the lapels and collar.

    Oh I love it!

    Rocketboy: couldn’t you add more padding to the shoulders, and make it in a lovely dark grey? I think that would look super manly. Maybe a nice blue lining?

    A challenging pattern! I like the model too ;) The only thing missing now is pants, then you can make a whole suit for a guy. Rocketboy: don’t be afraid of the soft allure of this garment: metrosexual is the new manly.

    The model is rather cute, I must say!

    The jacket is really nice. Hm..I think I may need to make it for my brother. He would really like it.

    Great jacket. My husband and my 17 son like it and want it. I’m a bit to intimidated to try it just yet but will work up to it.

    rocketboy: i don’t think is a feminine jacket, you can use “manly” materials and you would look great ;) Its like a more modern cut for jackets i guess…

    HURRAH. More menswear! This excites me, thanks for uploading. Though I’m pretty intimidated, not sure I can take it on just yet.. I enjoy his whole little outfit :)

    I really appreciate having more men’s patterns available for download!

    Being a man, I feel like this looks like it was tailored for a woman, or maybe by a woman? Is this the difference between being a seamstress and a tailor?

    Everything about it is soft, from the buttons to the edges. How can this be made more masculine? I finished reading the instructions, this is a serious day’s work! I’d like to end up with something that makes me feel sharp and handsome. Judging by the previous comments this jacket might make me feel rather pretty.
