The jersey jacket: an unexpected combination

The wind of change has created some bold developments in menswear, particularly in the jacket, a garment whose sharp style has made it a kingpin of male elegance, both in formal and in more casual looks. Today the trend is towards increasingly comfortable clothes, and we at Boggi Milano have anticipated this demand with the jersey jacket. Jersey, named after the Channel Island where it was first made, is not a loom-woven textile, but a form of knitwear that generally has one pile side and one smooth side. We have combined the practical flexibility of jersey with the quintessentially classical style of the jacket. Knitwear and jackets have always been two separate worlds, but the jersey jacket brings them together in a new and surprising combination. It offers comfort and practicality, along with a smart appearance. The thread count used is so fine as to give the jersey jacket a very high degree of elasticity. It demolishes the frontier between jacket and knitwear, and when you wear it, it doesn’t feel like a jacket, but more like a super-comfortable sweatshirt. In terms of style it is perfect with a pair of jeans and sneakers.

The jersey jacket is a revolutionary garment, an item well-suited to the modern Gentleman interested in discovering new ways of creating his own personalised interpretation of male elegance.
