Paul Smith knows how to take something traditional and make it exclusive. Within his larger Ivy League-inspired collection made for menswear retailer MR PORTER, no where else is this more clearly evident than in his take on the varsity jacket, the flagship part of a line-up of this stature. Leaving much of the traditional behind, Sir Smith takes the luxury that is premium black leather for the sleeves, uses navy cotton twill for the body of the coat, and inserts a chest pocket in place of the collegiate letter that gives this jacket its name. A smooth liner, 5 black buttons, a cotton and cashmere-blend ribbed stand collar and hem, and an internal pouch pocket complete the look. This timeless piece that can be found exclusively at MR PORTER now.
