You heard it here first: this fall will mark the breakout season for loud, imposing tweeds. And there’s perhaps no more arresting or essential a version than the hefty, brilliant houndstooth wool used on this sportcoat from Drake’s London.
Tailoring-wise, the jacket hits all the right notes to make menswear geeks weep with joy. It’s unstructured and unlined for a natural drape across the shoulders and through the body. There are double patch pockets accented by a patch ticket pocket, real horn buttons, and a proper 3-roll-2 closure to appease all the Ivy League style purists out there. Oh, and we mentioned that incredibly awesome houndstooth tweed, didn’t we?
Pick one up now and make it your signature piece all autumn long.
