The jacket shown here is cut in a grey Prince-of-Wales chenille. Chenille is a fabric woven from a hollow yarn, which result in a bulky fabric that has body without being too heavy. It is perfect for warm and comfortable mid-season clothes. This one is a blend of cotton and viscose, softer than the cotton-and-wool version. Its grey pattern is a classic Prince-of-Wales pattern awakened by a hint of yellow. This jacket can be worn outside and then under a coat when the cold weather hits.
In case you enjoy carpenter collars but don’t know hollington’s Odéon jacket yet, just try it on and you will not be able to go without it anymore.
The jacket is made 100% in Italy, and its carpenter collar is directly assembled to the garment. You can choose to turn it up on cold days for a urban, James Dean style. If your style is more classical, imitate Rodin during the bell époque and put it down in a painter fashion.
As you may know, playing with various pockets is a distinctive feature of Patric Hollington’s design. This jacket even hides two secret ones. Invisible, they are sewed inside the flat pockets, like in a saddlebag. Watch the picture closer! The four inside zipped pockets are very deep in order to fit all of your everyday tools: notebook, passport, wallet, handbook, watercolours, smartphone…
Odéon jacket’s cut is slightly fit, but Patric kept it comfortable by adding a back slit that gives you a great freedom of movement. One can wear it over a shirt for a smart look or over a thick Irish sweater in more relaxed times.
