Virgil No. 3 Jacket
Leno-weave hopsack makes this one of the hardest-working jackets we make... fantastically durable for four-season wear, with a really great texture. And of course, you can't go wrong with navy. We used horn buttons — not quite as Thurston Howell III as brass — but feel free to swap them out or add elbow patches to make it your own. Full canvas construction is like the sine qua non of tailoring, and the No. 3 has a special 3-layer canvas that makes it our most structured tailored make. You can almost feel it start to mold to your body as soon as you slip it on. And with a 3-roll-2 front, a center vent, and no front darts at all, the Virgil model feels a little old-school-academic. Think of it as the fresher, sexier brother of the sack jacket. As always, we built it with a soft (read: natural) shoulder — while we always go for an American-Italian blend, the cut of this model leans a bit more stateside than the rest. It's designed to take you from Mississippi to Manhattan to Milan, and back again, without looking or feeling out of place.
