Misses 8-18; Men's 34-44
Adapted from regulation Belgian military issue in olive cotton gabardine, our version also looks great in chef's white, brilliantly colored silk, or any other fabric. Cook up a creative variation of this fashionably cropped jacket by piecing the front and back panels from contrasting fabrics or with unusual buttons. Lapels can be worn open or closed.
Suggested fabrics: Medium or heavyweight cottons and blends such as poplin, denim, gabardine, corduroy, linen; light to medium-weight wool; suiting weight silks.
