Hi Flo! I'm going to NYC for two weeks in late december and will be travelling to boston and washington dc as well so want to look cute but also comfortable/practical, while also going out at night.

Military Green

I’ve posted about 1ST PAT-RN unique pieces and outstanding craftsmanship a few times before, but it wasn’t until recently that I actually had the chance to purchase one of their jackets. Inspired by the uniforms worn by Italian Special Forces during WWII, the Ardito features the label’s trademark wool/cotton “Cavalry di Maglia” fabric, along with superb detailing and fit. Completely unstructured with raw jersey inner seams, the three-button jacket mixes casual and refined elements, posing a perfect alternative to wear as a layering piece or on its own.

Presenting strong military influences such as the deep side flap pockets, buttons, the additional small waist pocket and removable strap, plus in this case, the color itself, it has become one of the most heavily worn garments on my wardrobe. The truth is, you need to try one of these jackets on to really understand the craftsmanship involved in its making: from pattern design to the exclusive fabric, it seamlessly adjusts to the body feeling just perfect.

I love how it looks with a white shirt (probably influenced by Cristiano Berto’s own styling) and a pair of chinos or slacks. Here I paired it with a white oxford button down and light grey herringbone wool trousers, while adding a charcoal vest and accessories to the mix. The result is a clean, yet intricate attire, combining different patterns and textures that add to the overall visual appeal.

Details: Ardito jacket by 1ST PAT-RN, oxford button down by Our Legacy, mto herringbone wool trousers and regimental tie by Gentleman Tailors, wool vest (part of a suit) and tobacco suede boots by Purificacion Garcia, cashmere scarf by Burberry, checked pocket square by Tie Rack, bracelets by Viola Milano and watch by Rolex.
