This jacket is one of the highlight pieces in Boggi Milano’s fall/winter 2018-19 collection. It is a garment that helps create a striking casual outfit by virtue of its colour, an overall blue-violet in which an important part is played by the textile used, an Italian-made Super 120 stretch nubby wool. Its accents of Royal Blue – one of the featured colours in the new collection – stand out against the darker background like stars in the night sky, with a random effect generated by the weaving process, giving the jacket a distinctive luminosity and an informal look heightened by the unstructured shoulders and notched lapel. At the same time, its sartorial vocation is revealed by the Custom Fit cut, which heightens the wearer’s physique, and the flap pockets.
This sort of jacket is easy to incorporate into an outfit. You can wear it over a long-sleeved polo shirt in a shade of blue that coordinates with the jacket’s Royal Blue accents. A pair of chinos in a light colour, white or beige, provides a pleasant note of contrast both in terms of colour and of their smooth structure that enhances the three-dimensional texture of the jacket’s fabric. As always, the details should not be overlooked: in this case, ankle boots in blue suede and a belt in the same material. You can add a personal touch to the outfit by means of a pocket square, and for this item, you have a virtually unlimited choice, considering the richness of the jacket’s weave that provides many suggestions for colour coordination.
Italian sartorial excellence
This jacket is a good example of Italian sartorial excellence, comfortable by virtue of the stretch wool fabric, and versatile, ideal for a range of looks from informal to smart casual, for leisure events or for the office.
