Designed in 1974, the Sligo is one of Patric Hollington’s very first pieces. As he very much enjoyed work wear, he imagined this carpenter-collar jacket which keeps the handy style of it but uses the most elegant canvases. The ‘brain workers’ from Paris or elsewhere adopted it right away, and it became the most iconic item of Rive Gauche hollington brand.
Originally, the cut was straight but for a few years now, many of you asked for a slightly fitter cut. Patric modified the design, still keeping 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.
From the beginning on, the four inside pockets have been very deep in order to fit all of your everyday tools: notebook, passport, wallet, handbook, watercolours, smartphone… They are now zipped, but the three outside piped pockets stayed as you know them.
The carpenter collar of this Sligo jacket is directly assembled to it by double, symmetrical seams to underline the architectural structure of the garment.
