Introduction to the Sports Jacket

 

Examples of a Sports Jacket

Examples of a Sports Jacket

Few garments in a wardrobe can transform a man like a handsome sports jacket.  Slipping it on over a dress shirt instantly changes how strangers perceive you.  It can provide the right balance of professionalism in an environment where a suit would be overkill, and depending on the fabric and style can adapt itself to multiple situations.

The Case for the Sports Jacket

  1. It enhances your silhouette – a well fitted sports jacket broadens & heightens a man’s shoulders, can slim the appearance of a bulging midsection, and creates a more naturally masculine appearance overall.
  2. It’s useful – a sports jacket keeps its wearer (or his companion) warm and has plenty of pockets for holding various items that would otherwise have to be uncomfortably carried in the trousers.
  3. It sets you apart – How many times have you shown up to a business casual event to find every male in attendance is dressed in khaki pants, a blue shirt, and red tie.  Be the guy who ditches the tie and throws on a sports jacket (and trousers that fit/polished shoes).  You’ll probably be mistaken for the man in charge, which isn’t a bad thing!

What Makes a Sports Jacket?

The Sport Jacket’s Fit

A sport jacket is more casual than a suit or even a blazer jacket and should fit on the body a bit looser (although the definition of looser is debatable).  I personally like to have enough room so that I can wear layered clothing underneath and still drive my truck without  feeling restricted in the back or having to remove the jacket.  But fit is a very personal thing – in the end go with what suits your build and feels right when worn.

The Sports Jacket’s Fabric

Various Sport Jacket Fabrics

Various Sports Jacket Fabrics

Sports jacket fabrics can be made from wools and cottons of various weights and weaves.  Typically we’ll see cotton fabric used in the summer and wools in the cooler months; blended fabrics can be used by those on a budget assuming the man-made fiber content is not more than 50%. Some of the most common weaves utilized in sports jackets are tweed, flannel, corduroy, camel hair, seersucker, and a wide range of worsted fabrics in patterns such as sharkskin, houndstooth, bird’s eye, and of course solid colors.

The Sports Jacket’s Style

A favorite aspect of a sports jacket, and what sets it apart clearly from a suit jacket, is the wide range of style options available.  Many of these style options can be traced to the history of how the jacket was originally worn and used; first making its appearance in the hunting & shooting arenas one hundred years ago, it was designed with easily accessible patch pockets and leather patches on the shoulder and elbows to prevent wear.  Other style options include ticket pockets, leather buttons, and building the sports coat to have expandable pleats on the back to give greater flexibility in movement.

 

Unique fully functional lapels allow the jacket to be buttoned up in foul weather.

Unique fully functional lapels allow the jacket to be buttoned up in foul weather.

What to Wear with a Sports Jacket

The Sports Jacket Shirt

A sports jacket is most appropriately paired with a dress shirt.  When wearing them together, the same rules apply as when wearing a suit – try to ensure ¼ to ½ inch of cuff shows and about ½ inch of the top of the collar above the jacket’s collar.  Casual shirts with button cuffs and button-down or spread collars are at home here, as well as check and wide/multicolor stripe patterns.  I am not a fan of designer T-shirts or polo shirts being worn with a sports jacket – however if you are in the right environment (see this picture of Glen Palmer and Lloyd Boston)-it can be pulled off.  Here is a picture of a young man who knows how to wear a corduroy sports jacket and dress shirt with style!

The Sports Jacket and Trousers

The most important consideration in your trouser selection (assuming they are clean and well kept) is not to have them closely match the jacket.  For a sports jacket is an “odd jacket,” purposely designed to be single in a world of matching suits.  To match a solid colored sports coat with a pair of similar trousers will have you looking like you’re wearing a bad suit.  Grey flannel or cotton trousers in khaki, tan, or brown are a natural pair with a patterned sports coat – their neutral color does not compete for attention with the jacket which is exactly what you want.  Although the Houndstooth Kid will cringe, I also feel tasteful denim can be worn successfully with a sports jacket.

Your Shoes

Your choice of footwear is as wide as the combinations of the above garments.  But be aware that it is the 2nd most important item you’ll be wearing, and that by going too casual here you’ll bring the entire ensemble down to your casual footwear’s level.  Hence a pair of Converse can be worn, but only if you’re an artist or Phil Collins.  For the rest of us I recommend at least a leather loafer or classic oxford; if you wish to dress up the feet a bit more have a look at this custom pair from Leffot.

My idea sport coat would indeed be a practical sporting coat! Made of Brown tweed with a windowpane pattern (#5-5-21), it would have three buttons, exterior bellows patch pockets for cartridges, a functional collar tab, a half-belt, shoulder pleats, and of course leather elbow patches and leather shoulder pad for shooting. Three-button functional cuffs, as well as an extra button above the bellows pockets to button the flaps open, too. A patch breast pocket, double vents … have I got it all down?

So if I am entering for a free and fancy sports coat, I am going to design something that I wouldn’t otherwise get. I can buy my own traditional sports coat, but I am in the process of making my wardrobe a little edgier. I think of my style as a cross-over of WASPY traditionalism, country club cocktails, and urban umph with some country roots! Put Johnny Cash, Justin Timberlake, Obama, and JFK into a blender and you get my sense of style, so here is my design.

VBC Super 130`s. #5-16-101. Gray.
One Button Single Breasted.
Hand Stitched Notch Lapel
Single Vent
Slanted Ticket Pocket
Regular Breast Pocket
Two Button Sleeve
Red Lining
“XY Makes Men” in Black, Block print
Form Fit
shoulder 23″
chest 42″
jacket length 32.5″

But I’m going to need to be properly measured before submitting my actual winning order.

Material
Sports Jacket
Lessona Super 120`s
#5-12-6
Navy Blue
Two Button Single Breasted
Hand Stitched Notched Lapel (Please do not press down the lapels, let them pull back to the wearer when it is on.)
Double Vent
Patch Pockets
Patch Breast Pocket
Three Buttons on the sleeve (with the out most button hole stitched with a different color thread then the other two, if possible)
Jacket Interior Lining
It is not a listed option however, it would be fantastic if the jacket could be finished unlined. I know this is more work (usually imperfections can be hidden behind the lining because they will never be seen).
If it is not possible please line the jacket in red.
Jacket Inscription (if lined)
Not by Strength by Guile
Inscription Color (if lined)
Dark Blue
Inscription Font Style (if lined)
Script
Overall Fit of Garment
Form Fit
The idea here is this will be the best piece of clothing one has. So make it your own. Some of the details are out there (last button whole on the sleeve in a different color) but that is point. This should be something worn as often as possible. When asked about it, I will have plenty to talk about.

Guess I’m the only last minute entrant! A good article too. I personally love sports jackets; my work is pretty informal, so unless it’s an event I feel overdressed in a suit, but I can always sport a nice jacket.
