This imposing, masculine silhouette of the low DB was notably worn by Humphrey Bogart and the Duke of Windsor, and has long been a favourite at Edward Sexton.

Cut from this rich and lustrous Italian Navy wool mesh, the jacket lends itself superbly to business and pleasure alike.Unique and interesting enough in shape to wear to an event or a dinner, making it an excellent cocktail or party suit as much as a business suit.

About the block

Low Double-Breasted Jacket, which fastens at the hip. This has its roots in the 1930s and ‘40s, seen in films that Edward has long admired like Casablanca, and this too relies on the delicate balancing of proportions. The lower buttoning point and subtly extended shoulder-line focuses the eyes on the shoulder and hip rather than accentuating the waist. This creates a louche, masculine and fluid silhouette. We cut these jackets slightly looser in the body and without rear vents, true to their art deco archetypes.

Cloth information

100% Wool, woven in Italy. At a slightly heavier 300g, this cloth boasts a magnificent drape, structured and purposeful. Despite the weight, the mesh weave allows for airflow and therefore ventilation, keeping its wearer cool. This plus the texture provides a sturdy, comfortable and foreboding garment.
