The Casual Freeman Sportcoat - Navy Knit
18 month ago we embarked on a project to create a knit version of our Freeman Sport Coat. After making several tweaks to our existing pattern to account for mechanical stretch, the next step was finding the perfect fabric. The goal was to create a jacket that presented the form & shape of a classic navy blazer in combination with the comfort, durabillity and range of motion of your favorite sweater.
We approached Leomaster S.p.A., an Italian mill specializing in yarn-dyed wool knits. Several iterations later, we settled on a Wool/Nylon/Poly blend that, when made up, creates a refined, tailored silhouette that incorporates mechanical stretch for unparalleled comfort.
The "Cuban" Unconstructed Freeman Sport Coat is marked by several defining features that are a result of our continued quest to combine comfort & construction. Foremost among these: a soft shoulder. We've replaced the shoulder pads with a hand-shaped piece of light canvas, instead of enhancing and smoothing the lines of your shoulder, the jacket will follow them. It’s a more relaxed look that is aided by a "floating" canvas chest piece and shirt-sleeve construction, making it very lightweight and extraordinarily comfortable.
The result is a refined, tailored look that offers unparalleled comfort and range of motion.
Cut in an 10 oz. Wool/Nylon/Poly blend from Italian mill, Leomaster S.p.A, this blazer goes equally well with a pair of Winchester trousers or jeans, making it the perfect everyday coat.
