Type I – the Colleger, the true English country sports jacket. Traditionally, it is shorter and niftier, less likely to get caught or drag when you were beating through bracken.
Accidentally modernised when it was adopted and adapted by jazz loving, reforming Ivy League students appealing to their modernist and utilitarian sensibilities. The ‘colleger’ was born and ever since has become synonymous with the clean cut preppy style; looseness and shortness perfectly balanced with a relaxed and casual look.
It has our characteristic curved, military,’ action’ sleeve with a ‘working’ cuff.
