Every man needs a nicely-tailored tweed jacket in their closet. Yes, even if you have no intention of looking like a wise academic or a moody creative anytime soon. It’s a versatile garment, after all – informal enough to keep things casual, smart enough to clean up an ensemble, and warm enough for the prevailing chilly weather. The Drake’s x David Coggins Single-Breasted Wool Jacket is one of our favorite for this season.
Developed with Conde Nast Traveler editor, David Coggins, it’s an easygoing jacket that lets you put together a dapper outfit without looking like you’re gearing up for a boardroom battle. It’s one of those suit jackets that manages to tow the fine line between formal and casual, lending itself well whether for dressing down or dressing up, making for quite the versatile piece for the office.
The Drake’s x David Coggins Single-Breasted Wool Jacket uses a tweed fabric that’s handcrafted from Northern Italy, with an unstructured and unlined construction to keep things light and relaxed. It has a soft, natural shoulder line to give off a sharp but non-threatening vibe, with side vents to keep things cool when the weather doesn’t quite live up to the low-temperature forecast.
Features include notch lapels, a three-button cuff, a two-button closure, dual patch pockets, a cigarette pocket inside (hey, it helps those with stressful jobs), and an additional patch ticket pocket. It comes in six sizes.
Available now, the Drake’s x David Coggins Single-Breasted Wool Jacket is priced at £995.
