Safari Jackets: Not just for Explorers from the early 19th century.

It's a nice feeling to leave the house in the morning when the suns out, no jacket required. Although that feeling soon starts to change when the evening strikes and there’s a slight freshness in the air. Those impromptu outside drinks after work now start to feel like a bad idea..right?

If you're in the market for an outerwear that can just be as easily dressed up as it can be dressed down this summer, a safari jacket could be just the companion you need. A lightweight layer that can be thrown on in a flash ideal for cooler situations. a flash.

Traditionally, safari jackets were made from a light cotton drill or poplin fabric and constructed with epaulets, four external bellow pockets and a self belt. Thanks to the utilitarian design of the safari jacket, there have been many modern interpretations of this design classic (see below). 

Old Micro Jacket in Khaki.

Made in collaboration with Italian outerwear specialists Landi, We have taken a more streamline approach to the safari jacket by removing the epaulets and replacing the self belt with a concealed elasticated waistband.

Staying true to the aesthetic of the safari jacket, our iteration comes with a tailored fit, four external button down pockets with an additional inner zip pocket suitable for your wallet/phone/keys etc. We have also substituted the cotton outer with a microfiber fabric that has a luxurious soft touch.

The Old Micro comes in two colourways.

Available in White and Khaki, the Old Micro jacket may just be the lightweight layer to add to your summer wardrobe.
