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 aremaintained by topstitched seams : three outside and two inside.
Hollington favours double, symmetrical seams to underline the ‘work wear’ aspect of the garment even when it is not made of work wear canvas.
The jacket shown here is made of wool honeycomb. If our fabrics look so unique, it is because they are mostly conceived by Patric Hollington in close partnership with a weaver. This honeycomb is a good exemplification. The tiny alveoli give texture and relief to the fabric; the wool makes it very pleasant to wear. What is more, it is extremely elegant, as its colour blends red bronze and black.
