toffee wool corduroy regular nehru-collar Savoie jacket
- Order number: 2191000015_44
In case you don’t know hollington’s classic nehru-collar jacket yet, try it on: you won’t do without it any more! Patric Hollington designed it shortly after he opened his first store in 1974 and it soon became one of the brand’s iconic pieces.
Its collar, now called ‘mao collar’ to make it standard, was first named ‘nehru collar’ by Patric Hollington. A nehru collar goes slightly higher on the neck than a mao collar – this is the key of its increased elegance.
Are you not very familiar with the name of Jawaharlal Nehru? He is best know under the name Pandit Nehru and was one of the figureheads of India’s fight for independence, opening the way to a secular and modern state. If you look at pictures of him, you will see that he wore shirts and jackets which collars resemble hollington’s.
Its cut is wide and elegant, comfortable thanks to a back pleat that allows you a great freedom of movement.
Being detail-oriented, maybe you did notice that its buttons are made in a natural material. They are made either of horn or of corozo, a natural ivory that is actually palm fruit albumen.
Outside, the easily identifiable three patch pockets aremaintained by topstitched seams.
Hollington favours double, symmetrical seams to underline the architectural structure of the garment.
Inside are two pen pockets and four zipped pockets to slide your favourite items.
The jacket shown here is made of an toffee wool corduroy. Produced exclusively for hollington by Luca Visconti for over 30 years, this wide-ribbed velvet is first carefully brushed. He then receives a "vintage" finishing, which gives him a slightly passed look. The wool is placed on the inner side of the fabric, to increase its comfort, and on the top of the rib: softer and smoother, this winter fabric falls well and crumples very little. With a comfortable, not very ostentatious elegance, it can be easily combined with different clothes. Available in four colours.
