Black Wool 2/48 "Japan" Flannel Suck Coat, Natural Brown
A three-button, sack-cut blazer - incorporating characteristic elements of American tailoring and created without front darts. With open seam sleeves that drop naturally from the shoulders, the blazer also takes some notes as well from French designers. With this mix of continental design features, the blazer maintains a contemporary casualness alongside an overall relaxed feel.
Suited for business meetings to parties, this is the perfect, well-rounded jacket for occasions or as addition to your regular, everyday outfit rotation. Appearing at first glance as an authentic tailored jacket, but with rounded shoulders that allow for a more casual image with its softer impression. This build makes it easy to incorporate into your everyday outfits, making it an essential for pairing you’ll wear often. Striking a balance of the best of both worlds, it draws facets of tailored and unconstructed garments in a comfortable middle-ground.
This flannel is made from black merino, which is the finest of the rare colored merinos at 21.5 microns. The sheep looks completely black, but the wool is dark brown when shorn. The combed wool #48 twisted yarn made from this undyed wool is woven on a "shuttle loom" in Ichinomiya City, Aichi Prefecture, and then finished with natural water at a factory in Ogaki City, Gifu Prefecture, which has been in operation since the Meiji Era. It is a wonderful fabric with rich natural colors and a well-defined fabric grain.
