Today’s double-breasted suits are inspired by naval reefer jackets of the 1800s. They’ve gone from being naval to casual to strictly sharp, and they’ve been championed by everyone from the Duke of Windsor to David Bowie.
Ted Baker’s version of this classic has a lilac check, contrast under collar and printed lining for added personality. A simple two-by-two button design keeps it pared back and hints at a relaxed approach to smart dressing, while the buggy lining makes it lightweight and breathable. It’s cut slightly slimmer than previous suits from the brand.
Smarten up your casual outfit by pairing this jacket with chinos and a t-shirt, knit or textured shirt.
