Savile Row Inspired Pure Linen 2 Button Jacket
A very fine summer jacket!
I own this jacket in the pastel pink, and can confirm that its a very handsome piece indeed. The Italian linen is of very good quality - far better than any of M&S's cheaper pieces. The jacket has been cut on Richard James's house block, given that its part of his 'Savile Row Inspired' capsule collection, and this gives it a very modern, elegant shape. The waist is well defined, with modern one-button closure and nicely balanced shoulders and lapels. The AMF top-stitching on the pocket edges and lapels, together with the working cuff buttons also help to give a sense that this jacket is of superior quality. Most importantly of all, even though its fully lined, it feels feather-light and airy, and I haven't overheated in it once - and I've been wearing it on some of the hottest days we've had this year so far. Together with the trousers, I maintain that it makes for a very elegant summer suit, and is one of M & S's best summer pieces to date.
