Spring has started and summer is approaching gentlemen. We can finally put those bulky overcoats away in a corner somewhere and let them hibernate until we call upon them again. The air of spring brings about a whole new dimension of clothing, light weight shirts, bomber jackets, and any articles of clothing in vibrant colours. And all importantly, sport jackets makes their dominant return to the wardrobe rotations of discerning gentlemen. Not to say you haven’t worn them at all during the colder months, but we can now wear them out in plain sight for the world to see and not freeze in the process!
Wear it with a turtleneck, polo shirt (long or short is up to you), dress shirt or just a plain old t-shirt (I’ve seen it done but don’t approve of it). The point is, they are versatile articles of clothing that can be dressed up or down, instil confidence, attract (good) attention, afford you good service at various establishments, and much more. Personally, my taste is towards classic elegance, having pieces that are carefully curated and timeless in design, fit for a discerning gentleman we all aspire to be. Here I have compiled a few photos of sport jacket ensembles that may just fit this philosophy.
If you’re looking to add a few pieces to your collection for this spring/summer, get yourself a MTM or bespoke one made at a local respected tailor. If you’re not up to tailored pieces yet, Suit Supply usually has a good selection at reasonable prices with many different cuts you could fit very well into. Enjoy the upcoming season and please do share your thoughts and photos.
