You appreciate hollington’s ‘work wear’ style, its comfortable and handy clothing line? In that case, the Architect jacket should be the central piece of your wardrobe. Patric Hollington designed it shortly after he opened his first store in 1974 and it soon became one of the brand’s best-sellling pieces.
Why are you taking it on so easily? Is it for its unrivalled comfort? Its straight cut also allows you to match it with various styles of outfit. It will never feel too tight as it includes a back pleat that allows a great freedom of movement in any situation.
As for the style and originality of this jacket, the set of pockets designed on the chest gave it its ‘Architect’ name. It includes five piped pockets, but also three inside pockets, so you won’t need to carry a bag.
Its 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.
The jacket shown here is cut in a very dark navy blue wool and cotton twill. This beautiful, heavy winter fabric is inspired by workwear canvas. It is woven in Prato, Tuscany: that is where the best specialists of finishing are. They do make the cloth look more beautiful after the weaving step. Here, the finishing is ‘English’, i.e. a bit stiff for a city look. This smart appearance is enhanced by the addition of wool, which also allows a soft touch.
