We take a closer look at the cheeky baby brother of the brief­case.

How do you per­son­ally wear

the cot­ton jacket? ”Ei­ther as part of a ca­sual suit or as a blazer worn with a de­cent pair

of jeans.” What does it go with? ”With a shirt and tie, or a stylish polo shirt. At the height of sum­mer it can be worn with a nice sim­ple t-shirt.”

Tell us about the cot­ton used in Os­car Jacobsson's

spring jack­ets. “We have two ver­sions on of­fer this spring. The ca­sual one is made from washed, stretch­able gabar­dine. The lin­ing is made from a flo­ral shirt fab­ric from Lib­erty. For this jacket we devel

oped a two tone ef­fect but­ton that gives a nice con­trast to the fab­ric. The sec­ond op­tion is a jacket made from coarser cot­ton can­vas which has a

rougher feel to it.”

Or­di­nary peo­ple are the mod­els of to­day. The sum­mer edi­tion of Pitti Uomo in Florence is a great source of in­spi­ra­tion, the per­fect place to spot cot­ton blaz­ers worn the right way.
