The Portmanteau Shacket
The Portmanteau Shacket offers two styles, both featuring a relaxed boxy fit (perfect for layering), slightly dropped shoulders, a two-piece collar, and a separate button stand. Style A has angled hip pockets and a welted chest pocket, all neatly concealed within the semi-lined jacket front. Style B, inspired by the classic workwear jacket, is unlined, has three patch pockets and offers a more utilitarian aesthetic. Both Styles are suitable to a variety of fabrics and fabric weights, making this pattern a super versatile piece that can be customised to any season.
Medium to heavy weight fabrics such as flannel, linen, chambray, denim, corduroy, wool, wool blends etc.
For View A lining: Lighter weight fabrics such as cotton, linen, poplin, rayons etc.
(perfect use for remnants from previous projects)
