You’re usually able to recognise the style from the extended shoulders that are wider and have a slightly sloping form. The minimal padding means that the jacket is soft. The front is characterised by its lack of vertical darts that usually run along each side, which works well if you go for a patterned fabric. When it comes to the front the quarters are open or divide a fair bit, producing a soft, rounded shape. To round it all off the buttoning point is relatively low.
