Carl Gross Linen Waistcoat or Sports Jacket
Look a true gentleman – even when it’s over 30 degrees.
A rare find: A two-piece ensemble made of pure linen.
There are plenty of linen summer sports jackets everywhere. However, we have been looking for a classical one with a matching waistcoat – and we’ve found one at Carl Gross, known since 1925 for high quality men’s clothing made in accordance with traditional tailored style.
Linen has always been the stylish way to dress airily.
It breathes even better than cotton, absorbs more moisture and still retains its characteristic granular, cool feel. In addition, it has a deliberate and elegant crease, while being casual and sophisticated at the same time.
Soft inserts give the jacket shape.
It has a contemporary, slim, and slightly tailored shape with darts and two back vents. Two flap pockets, a banded breast pocket and three inside pockets.
The waistcoat complements the jacket perfectly – yet is also fashionable and versatile on its own.
Made of linen. With adjustable tab for a perfect fit. Fastens with five buttons. Two banded slash pockets, one piped ticket pocket.
Length in size 40R: Sports jacket 75cm (29.5″), waistcoat 60cm (23.6″). Colour: Navy mélange. Shell made of 100% linen. Sports jacket lining: 51% viscose, 49% acetate. Waistcoat back: 74% cotton, 26% polyamide. Dry clean only.
