The sport flannel blazer is the perfect layer to transition your look from the office to happy hour with ease. The soft flannel fabric by Vitale Barberis Canonico is breathable and durable, with a subtle brush that's ideal for seasonnal's relaxed tailoring. Wear it with a button-down shirt, or wear open over a sweater when the weather gets cooler. Available in 2 colors.
This classic 100% wool (yarn count 120's) flannel cloth is made by Vitale Barberis Canonico in Italy. The weight is 270gr/m which is great for a three seasons blazer, ideal to wear from september to may.
The family-run business, Barberis Canonico, are masters of all wool mill activities including their elaborate dyeing process they have refined since 1663. This flannel fabric is one of their classics, we have always known it and used it for more than ten years at Germain Tailors. It is also loved by many high-end fashion brands around the world. For many years now, the mill has worked very hard on sustainability.
This Sport Flannel Blazer is 30 hours of pure craftsmanship. It is a Half Canvas blazer, completely custom made in Shanghai by our tailors skilled and loving hands, which also produce men’s suits for prestigious fashion houses.
We like the construction of this Sport Flannel Blazer because the canvas only runs through the chest and lapels. This way it feels more robust and comfortable than a fused jacket but also lighter and less structured than a fully canvassed suit. The blazer will, therefore, have a structure and at the same time an elegant fluidity. 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. 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 2 buttons blazer is unlined and has 3 slanted flap pockets. The piping of the ticket pocket, the under-collar and the elbow patches are made in suede leather (caramel color for the grey cloth, and dark brown color for the blue cloth). The 7,5cm lapel is styled with a button hole tab (FYI : it is purely for style purpose, the collar cannot be buttoned) and one back side vent. The chest pocket "Barchetta" is cut with a curve similar to the shape of a boat which confers harmonious proportions.
