Donegal is a small town in northern Ireland. It is in a region of the world where warmth is a prized possession and became a hub for tweed textile manufacturing around the 18th century.
Although this jacket’s fabric wasn’t milled in Donegal, Ariston Napoli added their Italian twist by producing a soft, spongy and rich donegal fabric. It comes in an array of colors ranging from deep red to charcoal grey but this green stood out. At 380 grams, it doubles as an outerwear piece in 35-50 degree weather.
Made up with a 3/2 tip-over closure and 3 patch, snifter shaped pockets with corozo nut buttons and a notched lapel.
Forest green (as well as olive, taupe and brown) jackets are incredibly versatile as they go well with almost all pants; navy trousers, blue jeans, khaki chinos, grey slacks brown corduroys. Seeing as though the chambray shirt movement hasn’t lost traction, this jacket proves to be the best covering heading forward.
