Made in England from Sunspel's unique vintage wool fabric, this versatile jacket has a classic fit and a soft structure, which makes it a relaxed alternative to a blazer. The classic design features a 6-button front fastening, rounded collar and patch pockets for added practicality.
Sunspel's vintage wool – otherwise known as Q (for Quality) 12 – is spun specifically for us by an Italian mill steeped in years of heritage and expertise. It is a luxurious two-fold merino that was developed from an archive sample of Sunspel underwear. As it originates from a garment worn directly next to the skin, the fabric is supremely soft and comfortable.
Although Sunspel played a pioneering role in the development of some of the earliest cotton underwear and t-shirts to ever be made, Sunspel's occupation with wool pre-dates all of this. Woollen underwear was one of the earliest products to be made by Sunspel when Thomas A Hill founded it in 1860. In fact, despite the development of cotton undergarments and all of their obvious benefits, woollen underwear remained a mainstay of the business right up until the 1970s: a result of the English climate and some of Sunspel's customer’s apparent desire to live with windows that never closed and heating that never heated.
