No seams on the front of the jacket. The shoulders have no or little padding and have a rounded form. The cut is straight and worn loose, hence the name sack suit. The gorge line – the vertical seam that joins the collar and lapels – is low. The lapels are relatively narrow by today’s fashion standards. The jacket is easily recognisable thanks to its three buttonholes of which only two actually button. The top buttonhole is just for show and is pressed against the lapel. If worn as a suit the trousers are loosely cut with a high waist, a light cuff that touches the top of the shoes and a slightly wider footwidth than the current fashion.
