AK MC Double-breasted signature barchetta wool blazer in navy chalkstripe

SKU AKJ184- Categories , ,


The times when striped tailoring has been automatically associated with traditional boardroom attire are a thing of the past: This elegant, timeless cloth has received a completely new lease of life by Alexander Kraft thanks to sophisticated contemporary design which is equally suited for today’s business as it is for more casual occasions. This double-breasted jacket has been conceived to be worn alone, without matching trousers, and is striking in its simple elegance; it has been ingeniously updated through the addition of Napolitan – style Barchetta – shaped patch pockets which confer upon it a flair of effortless nonchalance. In typical Kraft-style, it can be worn with cream trousers, striped shirt and polished loafers for an elegant yet contemporary look but equally lends itself to be dressed down with jeans and an open polo shirt, making it a universal sartorial weapon that is a completely different, infinitely cooler animal than your (grand-)father’s suit jacket !

The bespoke tailoring – inspired, Signature double-breasted cut of Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo boasts a generously proportioned peaked lapel, Southern Italian Barchetta-shaped patch pockets (inspired by Neapolitan bespoke tailoring) and side vents. The Savile Row – inspired silhouette combines a strikingly elegant appearance with maximum comfort thanks to high armholes, roped shoulders, a delicately shaped chest and a nipped-in waist. Other bespoke touches include real horn buttons, working cuffs and a flower loop (a silk thread attached on the underside of the lapel to accommodate a boutonniere). The jacket features a half-canvas construction with a partial lining for a perfect combination of artisanship, lightness and comfort.
The medium weigh wool cloth is comfortable for year-round wear and the dark navy colour and subtle pattern combine well with a range of colours and textures.
