The Prince of Wales check is a classic, and Baird McNutt's Prince of Wales Blazer makes it even more special. Made up of milestone linen and available in 4 colors, this lightweight blazer is a wardrobe staple that can be paired with anything from jeans to chinos, while the tailored fit makes it perfect for casual Friday or any event where you need to look smart.
Milestone is a yarn dyed irish linen, with a weight of 208g/m. This suit fabric is available in a range of classic plaid and checks. With a crisp body and softhand feel, this Prince of Wales blazer is manufactured using traditional methods.
Baird McNutt’s brand heritage stretches back over 220 years to the Kellswater river of Antrim. With generations of knowledge in traditional methods, we pride ourselves in working with the world's finest Irish Linen.
This Prince of Wales Blazer is 30 hours of pure craftsmanship. It is a half canvas jacket, made in Shanghai by our tailor's skilled and loving hands. We like the construction of this Prince of Wales Blazer because the canvas only runs through the chest and lapels, making it feel more robust and comfortable than a fused jacket.
You'll also find it to be lighter and less structured than a fully canvassed suit.
The jacket will, therefore, have structure and an elegant fluidity at the same time. The canvas fabric also gives the jacket greater durability compared to a fused construction jacket.
The Neapolitan Trim fit has high armholes, thin shoulder pads and thin sleeve-head pads which creates a very gentle roped sleeve.
The Soft Comfort fit also has thin shoulder pads but it does not have sleeve-head pads. Instead, the sleeve-head is made with the "spalla camicia" technique (also called "shirt sleeve"), which means the sleeve-head is natural and not roped.
This single-breasted 3 roll 2 button Prince of Wales blazer is half-lined and has 2 patch pockets, a generous 9cm notch lapel and two back side vents. The chest pocket "Barchetta" is cut with a curve similar to the shape of a boat which confers harmonious proportions. This blazer comes with handmade milanese lapel buttonholes.
