This fabric blend has a little more weight to it than most sport coats but is not too heavy. It weighs similar to a 100% wool tweed sports coat. The tailoring for this weight of fabric is impressive. The upper back, under the arms and chest are roomy enough for layering sweaters underneath it. The mid section has a tapering that creates a waist to it. The zippers, patch pockets and the button flaps are stitched flat against the coat...no bulky look to it.
In studio lights, clothing usually photographs lighter than the reality. The vintage plaid is shades of dark navy blues with very subtle transitions between the shades. This is a dark jacket that does not scream for attention from across a room. This versatile coat looks good with denim jeans, cotton twill pants and wool blend dress slacks. I'll be keeping lookout for other Kroon Nash sport coats...this was my first.
