Virgil No. 2 Jacket in Chocolate/Bone Houndstooth by Sid Mashburn
This herringbone jacket is made from canapa, a rare hemp yarn with the same kind of textured crunchiness as a linen or a flax. It's spun in Italy (the English don't mess with canapa) in small quantities and gets better the more you wear it, which means this is a fantastic knockaround piece that's especially nice with a polo or something more casual underneath it. The No. 2 jacket make is fully canvassed, with a lightweight, single-layer canvas that'll mold and meld to your body, just in a sportier, easier way than our more structured Nos. 3, 4, or 5. Our Kincaid model has a natural shoulder, a 2-button front, and a shorter, darted body with a little tracing for a fit that's slimmish but never skinny. While we always go for an American-Italian blend, the Kincaid leans a bit more sartoria than the Virgil or the Landry. But just like all of our tailored clothing, it's designed to take you from Mississippi to Manhattan to Milan — and back again — without looking or feeling out of place.
