STYLE No. BKT79 – ‘FULL CANVAS SINGLE-BREASTED RELAXED-FIT OVERCOAT’
FULL CANVAS TAILORING:
Our BKT79 jackets are tailored with a fully canvassed construction – a time-honored tradition of meticulously sewing horse hair canvas into the front section of the jacket by hand. This technique provides a more natural, elegant drape on the body, which only improves over time as it breaks in and forms to your individual shape – not unlike a great pair of jeans. Most suiting manufacturers replaced this slow and expensive method last century with fused construction, which involves sandwiching a synthetic material between the layers of fabric and adding heat to “glue” the suit together. This time-saving method has become common practice with today’s mass-produced suits, but results in a jacket that will degrade quickly with age, and will never have the soft, organic drape over the body that a fully canvassed jacket can offer.
The Cut: Our BkT79 Overcoat is a new style this season. Fits a bit oversized, with a comfortable cut through the body and sleeve and a lower/wider lapel. Body length hits over knee.
