This Extra Heavy Barrathea Wool is commonly used in military uniforms due to its resistant properties and abilities to withstand plenty of stress and movement. So it’s only natural I was drawn to this ‘Made in England’ wool when sourcing fabric for this overshirt. This has a lovely twill weave with a heavy weight which works perfectly for this piece. I’ve finished this garment with Real Horn Buttons & left this un-lined, instead opting for a neatly presented inside structure finished with French Seams.
A jacket with multiple ways of wearing and styling. Starting with the collar, I wanted to have a bold high collar with a nice trim detailing which really stood out, these have a snug fit to the neck and have had extremely heavy fusing installed to keep the shape even after multiple wears. I’ve then installed a hidden button fly so that the jacket can be worn either open and showing the buttons, or closed with hidden buttons.
Two functional large front pockets with dual contrast stitching running along the edge give the jacket the boldness it needed. These have also been installed with extremely strong fusing and stitch re-enforcement to ensure these keep structure over multiple wears.
Not enough pockets? There is also hidden pockets on either side of the jacket which I have tucked behind the seam for even more functionality. Not enough functionality? The cuff straps are functional and also feature hidden buttons, which fasten on the inside of the strap. Play around with the tightness & length of the strap for more styling options – more is more after all! The jacket also has waist adjustors if you want to pull the body in slightly for a more tailored look – don’t say I don’t spoil you.
Model is 183cm (6 ft) and wearing a size medium.
