The Hacking jacket evolved from the riding coats worn since the 18th century by country folk and which caught the attention of the country loving English aristocracy. The hacking jacket is an accentuated version of a sports jacket, with a snugger fit and tighter waist; its traits are as truly British as can be. Available in 10 colors.
This tweed 100% wool cloth is made by A.Moon in England. The weight is 380gr/m which is great for autumn and winter.
From supplying fabric for a growing Leeds market throughout the 1800's to supplying the major fashion houses of modern times, fine history is just one of many features that come together to make Abraham Moon products extra special. We like that hard-wearing hand-feel which will create a truly classic drape. We also like the very english color palette.
This Hacking 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 Hacking 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 buttoned blazer is half-lined, has 2 flap pockets and two side vents. The generous 8,5cm lapel is modern and versatile. The chest pocket "Barchetta" is cut with a curve similar to the shape of a boat, which confers harmonious proportions.
