5 items left


Inspired by the improved safari hunting jacket from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

There are many opinions about the origin of a safari jacket, but what is more convincing is that this legendary jacket appeared in Africa in the late 19th century, and was designed to adapt to the tropical climate during the British colonial period. To adapt to the local climate, cotton or hemp is selected as the main material, with multiple pockets to facilitate the placement of maps, ammunition, compass, and other field necessities. Wide back or multiple pleats, with epaulets and waistband design, convenient for upper body movement when marching. At the beginning of the 20th century, the British elites in Africa have always been popular clothing, until now, there have been many changes, there are now a variety of forms of existence.

The upper and lower pockets of jacket body are asymmetrical,, the upper bag is a circular inclined paste bag, the lower bag is a square double-button organ stereo paste bag, but there is no sense of conflict between the square and the circle. Pritzky pleats on both sides of the back and narrow armhole allow for more movement without the constraints of a normal suit. The back belt allows the upper body to be more straight and straight. The double slit design and earth-hued tweed fabric with grey points give it more of an English gentry flavor.
