As elegant as casual gets, our Madison Suit Jacket represents the epitome of soft tailoring. As easy-wearing as it is sharp, it’s what the Italian courtier, diplomat, and author Baldassare Castiglione must have had in mind when he coined the termsprezzatura to describeeffortless nonchalance. The grey wool flannel, reminiscent of Cary Grant’s timeless sense of style, comes to us from Italy’s renowned Subalpino Mill. The Madison has a natural shoulder, relaxed fit, slightly nipped-in waist and lightweight butterfly lining. Additional design details include a two-button front and double-vent in the back, as well as a chest pocket known as abarchetta (Italian for “little boat”), because the sleek curvature of the pocket resembles a small skiff. Oh, and did we mentionthere are matching trousers available, too?
With an almost obstinate focus on quality — everything from the raw materials to the colors and designs — Lanificio Subalpino is known for creating exceptional fabrics. Founded in 1975, the family-owned business has kept a few fundamental tenets front and center: simplicity, modernity, originality, sustainability.
