* British designer Paul Smith’s take on the classic military field jacket
* Traditional camouflage at first glance, but actually a slight variation of the design
* Made of high quality cotton-twill with a zip-up front and lined sleeves
Military clothing is not new to high fashion, but in 2017, classic military pieces are being skillfully utilized by style masters as a definitive, subdued statement. This field jacket by Paul Smith is a great way to get a piece of the camo trend without looking too much like an actual soldier.
The jacket accomplishes this sophisticated military edge by slightly tweaking the camo pattern. Look closely, and you’ll see that the pattern is actually made of circles and squares. This tweak makes the jacket look more modern, and makes it easier to work into your everyday style.
The slim-fit jacket is made from plush but durable cotton-twill, and features plenty of pockets (as a field jacket should). The front of the jacket is a zip-up with button closures at the neck, hem, and wrists, and the sleeves are lined to slip easily over shirts and sweaters.
Paul Smith, now a world famous brand, gained its distinguished reputation in part by having an idiosyncratic take on traditional British tailoring. In fact, Sir Paul Smith was the first to coin the term “classics with a twist,” which is now a concept at the forefront of men’s fashion.
This field jacket captures the offbeat British sophistication of Paul Smith, and makes a great option for chillier days this fall. Try it with trousers and a T-shirt, or over a sweater and jeans for a look that really is classic with a twist.
