In light of our latest Caruso and Aspesi deliveries we wanted to take a closer look, a set of jackets that all offer a playfull alternative to the classic tailored jacket. With spring around the corner we wanted to showcase some ideas.
The Aspesi Tadoa jacket is a lightweight work jacket made from an overdyed and washed cotton-linen blend, which gives it a great texture and a soft hand. We combined this with our Finamore cotton-linen Carlo Riva shirt and white twill Rota pants. A RRL bandana for flair and Edward Green Harrow's in Dark brown Delapre leather to finish things off.
Last but definitialy not least, the Panarea Safari jacket. Washed for softness. It's a classic style, Caruso has had the Safari jacket on offer for a long time and this one is just their latest interpretation. We like it because it offers a slightly more casual alternative to a classic tailored jacket. Here we paired it with A dark-blue Seersucker shirt from our Japanese fabrics Gitman vintage shirt collection, a little bolder which makes it perfect with a pair of Snuff Suede tassel loafers by Alden and white Linen Herringbone trousers by Rota Pantoloni.
The inside label on the Caruso Panarea blazer says it all. "salt water, midnight dives and summer air are key elements to this jacket. Wear it playfully" It's a washed and unstructured jacket that's just amazing to throw on. Pair it with A celeste poplin shirt and Grenadine tie from Finamore, the red just makes the blue pop that much more and with a pair of unlined black Suede Harrow loafers by Edward Green and a pair of Hopsack trousers by Rota Pantaloni.
