Color me “casual” with textures and patterns when choosing what color sport coat to wear this summer.
Forget the shoulder pads and full lining! Go casual this summer with unconstructed sport coats in a variety of colors, textures, patterns and lightweight fabrics. Here are our top selections for you:
Loro Piana Blue Sport Coats
Nothing says summer better than blue skies and deep blue oceans. Loro Piana offers a wonderful blue seersucker whose nubby texture begs to be touched. It’s the lightest weight fabric you’ll find in a jacket plus it’s super casual.
Loro Piana’s Proposte Giacche Collection offers a solid blue loosely woven jacket that’s a wool/silk/linen blend. Fine wool can be worn all year round and helps keep wrinkles commonly associated with silk and linen to a minimum.
Loro Piana Patterned Sport Coats
Patterns in the collection are suitable for either dress or casual wear, especially when paired with black pants or jeans. Choose a subtle blue and black plaid or splurge on the bolder windowpane made of silk and cashmere.
Colorful Summer Jackets
If you love the desert colors, we’ve got some real beauties. Regal’s 100% wool Super/120’s plaid composed of light shades of brown has a hint of blue. Match it with chinos or jeans. For a solid colored jacket, try Loro Piana’s blend in melon or magenta—its texture makes it anything but ordinary. Two mauve fabrics, one a small check and the other a bold windowpane, are both worthy examples of our gorgeous Arizona sunsets.
This blue/grey herringbone stripe from Loro Piana’s Mare Collection is reminiscent of that rare overcast day in Phoenix. It’s perfect for dress up when worn with a dress shirt and tie or open collar. A cotton/wool/silk blend, it’s smooth to the touch and quite elegant. Our Regal Collection of 100% wool/Super 120’s offers another blue/black combination that allows you to choose which, of several hues of blue to match, with a shirt and pant.
