Product information "college-stripe stretch seersucker cotton Naipaul mao-collar jacket"


Have you ever tried the Naipaul jacket on? When Patric Hollington designed it twenty years ago, his intention was to give a perfect fit to an unstructured, lightly built garment.

It is the only unlined jacket in hollington’s wardrobe. The inside has no interfacing in order to allow the greatest suppleness and comfort. When the jacket is cut in a thin cloth, it looks like an overshirt; when it is cut in a thicker fabric, it is closer to a casual chic jacket.

Its cut is wide, with large armholes. One can wear it over a shirt for a smart look or over a simple tee-shirt in more relaxed times. It will never feel too tight as it includes a back pleat that allows a great freedom of movement in any situation.

Its collar, now called ‘mao collar’ to make it standard, is actually an ‘officer’ collar. Is it high and lined with a narrow piece of canvas all around the neck.

Five patch pockets are maintained by topstitched seams : three outside and two inside.

Hollington favours double, symmetrical seams to underline the architectural structure of the garment.

The jacket shown here is made of college-stripe stretch seersucker cotton. This pattern of British origins was inspired by Patric Hollington’s early years. It highlights navy blue and English green stripes with yellow and red thinner lines. Preppy style enthusiasts consider it an essential piece. That is an ideal pick to give a formal but young twist to a pair of jeans, coloured trousers… or Bermuda shorts. Seersucker is a summer classic, as its embossed weave makes it light and crease-resistant. It reinforces the depth of the stripes by following their direction.
