Removing the canvas from an otherwise standard looking sport coat has many advantages. At first, the coat becomes lighter; about 20% lighter in fact. Additionally, the jacket takes on characteristics normally reserved for a cardigan. It has drape and fluidity. It is softer and cannot be cut quite as close to the body. It can still be dressed up with a tie and pair of trousers, but ultimately looks better with jeans than the structured version of itself.
Pictured here is an Eremengildo Zegna wool and cashmere herringbone fabric. The jacket has our rounded "tasca a pignata" pockets, 6mm AMF stitch and mother of pearl buttons. Sport coats range from $595 - $1295.
