This jacket reminds me of Paul Poiret’s jacket in the book, _Poiret_, by Yvonne Deslandres; sort of unstructured without alot of padding. I think it must be very comfortable and I am glad to see it since I despise shoulderpads and those canvas things they put in men’s suiting.
If indeed this is a “Germanic-style” (so as not to offend either Bavarians or Austrians, both of whom would probably claim the style as their own), I love to see it. My husband, a thoroughly Latin and middle-eastern mix, has a loden jacket from his time in Germany, and it just says something special about the wearer.
Dear Sir in photo, Please ignore the comments about the wrinkles–the folds and creases in your gorgeous loden-green jacket are what makes it zing, and is an earthy-sophisticated contrast to your impecable shirt and tie. Your chinos are perfect as they are, including their shorter length, which is a flattering 60s era look that needs to be seen more often.
great, great color, and very surprising. I like the cut/long placket, but the material (linen?) and the lack of a strong lining/structure are giving this guy the dreaded man-boobs, at least in this picture. I don’t think ironing would help that problem — this jacket needs interlining or to be cut in a different fabric, like wool, that won’t grab the body’s contours so tightly.
Im from Austria In our Country its called JÃ¤gerleinen (Hunters Linnen)but as far as i can see it is not a original one cause the cut is a little bit different here.If you like to see the original mail me at martin_kaiser1[at]gmx[dot]net
