This season we are debuting our Four Pocket Shacket. New to the term? It’s essentially a slightly oversized button-down shirt blended with all the utility of a jacket. The perfect piece to layer come fall, winter and spring; it suits absolutely everyone. The shacket looks clean and fresh, all buttoned up on its own as a shirt, or effortlessly chic undone and layered with your favorite tees, turtlenecks, and even fitted button-downs beneath it.
Versatility is more important than ever. According to the editors at Net-a-Porter, “As the boundaries between home and work life have blurred, so too have our outfits; today, we need hardworking garments that can be worn with smart silhouettes, as well as off-duty looks come the weekend. When it comes to deciding what will instantly up your wardrobe game – and go the distance – a ‘shacket’ is a smart choice. It is the ultimate in smart-casual wear and looks just as chic when paired with low-key denim and sneakers as with tailored pants.”
In our case, we took the silhouette of our popular Modified Boyfriend Shirt and at its waist attached a drawstring belt replete with flat golden tipped ends. We’ve covered the front button placket and added two snap-close pockets at the chest and two just below the waist. Our shacket features a classic point collar and long 4-inch single-button cuff closures, and is available in a heavy white oxford and olive-green cotton twill.
If you carry weight in your chest, waist, and hips, you might wish to order the next size up. In any case, it’s best to check the “Sizing Details” tab—in The Tool Kit at the left—to ascertain the shacket’s dimensions and determine which size will suit you best.
