Glenariff linen fabric (with an estimated weight of 270g/m) is a high quality mercerized and fully shrunk linen suiting. This 100% Irish linen fabric is the highest quality linen material for suits, jackets and trousers.
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 Glenariff Linen Blazer is 30 hours of pure craftsmanship. It is a Half Canvas jacket, completely made in Shanghai by our tailors skilled and loving hands which also produce men’s suits for prestigious fashion houses. We like this construction because the canvas is running only through the chest and lapels, this way it feels more robust and comfortable than a fused jacket.
This linen blazer is also lighter and less structured than a fully canvassed suit. The jacket will, therefore, have a structure and at the same time an elegant fluidity. The canvas fabric also gives the the Glenariff Linen Blazer 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 buttoned Glenariff Linen Blazer is half-lined and has 2 straight flap pockets. It also has modern 8cm 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.
