This Season's Ring Jacket Highlights
We've rounded up some of the key pieces from our Spring/Summer 18 collection of Ring Jacket tailoring for The Armoury.
This cotton/cashmere blend AMJ03 model suit by Ring Jacket can be considered the quintessential Summer suit. We chose this specific cotton/cashmere blend as the cashmere gives the fabric a soft hand. The blend also gives the cotton, which is traditionally a stiffer fabric, a nice flexibility, for movement and comfort. This suit can be worn casually (on a boat even, as demonstrated below by Jim) with a long sleeve polo, or dressed up with a more formal shirt and tie. Mr. Parker recently wore the below suit to a Southern wedding with ease.
Ring Jacket Wool Balloon AMJ03 Sport Coat - Olive
The Armoury's collection of wool balloon sport coats is demonstrative of our ethos of function, versatility and style. The wool balloon fabric is a proprietary development from Ring Jacket, who are known for their innovative materials. This wool balloon fabric is made with a high-twist yarn, forming a breezy open weave. The fabric has a natural stretch and breathability, making the garment extremely wrinkle resistant. We consider it the perfect travel jacket. Dan is wearing his in a versatile Olive color, paired with our new Ring Jacket sport trouser.
The wool balloon sport coat is a staple in our Ring Jacket Spring/Summer offerings. This particular wool balloon sport coat has a subtle blue on navy check. Due to the monochromatic nature of the pattern, this sport coat can be styled similar to a solid, giving the piece the right balance of interest and wearability.
Amechi illustrates the fit of The Armoury's Ring Jacket AMJ06 double breasted model. The model features a lower, more horizontal lapel that sweeps out wide and straight, making the it incredibly classic and wearable. We've also lowered the breast pocket, extended the shoulders, and kept everything soft for a timeless feel. This dark navy is new this season for Spring/Summer. Our wool fabric is finer than a fresco, with a soft hand, allowing it to be worn in warmer months as well as cooler. The wool is naturally moisture-wicking, for comfortable wear year-round. The new dark navy 4-ply wool suit is also available in a single breasted AMJ03 model.
One of our favorite pieces from this season's collection is this wool check sport coat. Retaining the same moisture-wicking, cooling qualities of the wool 4-ply suit shown above, this sport coat can be a bit dressier than the wool balloon sport coat. Max pairs his with a custom Armoury shirt, available for commission year-round. This sport coat can be dressed down, as pictured here, or dressed up with a solid tie like the green shantung as seen in our Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook.
