Linen is a quintessential summer fabric for good reason -- aside from wearing a mesh tank top, there is nothing more breathable than linen. But unlike a mesh tank top, you will look sophisticated wearing this linen shirt jacket. Linen also keeps its structure nicely, has an almost bouncy quality to it, and gets charmingly rumpled with wear, making it a great choice for a casual overshirt.


  • 100% Linen woven in Italy by Lanificio Campore
  • Medium weight, but linen is extremely breathable
  • SEASONALITY: This is a perfect layering piece for mild weather, or cool evenings in the warmer months
  • HAND FEEL: Seersucker is a highly-textured, crinkly weave that has a springiness when scrunched
  • COLOR: A rich navy with natural light and dark tonal variations
  • BUTTONS: Genuine shell buttons in smoke


  • Our BKT15 Shirt Jacket takes the iconic chore coat (AKA shirt jacket, AKA overshirt) of yesteryear as a jumping-off point. But, we've updated it with a more modern shape, and elevated detailing. Its one of the most versatile pieces in our collection - a perfect layering piece on top of a t-shirt or button-up. More casual than a blazer, more tailored and functional than a cardigan sweater, and equally at home in the office, running errands, or at a dinner party with friends.
  • The fit is straight through the body (not too slim, not too wide), with a straight-bottomed hem hitting below the waistline.


  • Collars and cuffs are constructed with a non-fused, free floating interlining for a more natural drape and longer life
  • 3 patch pockets on the front / exterior
  • Center back seam
  • Single-button barrel cuffs
  • Made in Portugal


  • Dry clean only
