Light jackets

The origins of the jacket.

The origins of the jacket date back to the early Renaissance, with the so-called “jerkin”, its older version, a short tunic worn by men of this period. Then, in the beginning of the 18th century, the jacket became the typical uniform for the agricultural employees and the servants. Later, in the 1830s, the lounge jacket, with a single-breasted cut, became a trend amongst middle-class men, and especially for sports activities. If the lounge jacket began with 10 buttons, this number was reduced to 3 with the 19th century’s model. Jackets were then worn at society evenings, and took the name “dinner jacket”, which was in fact the top of a tuxedo. In the 20th century, the jacket is available in several versions: sports jackets, Norfolk jackets, blazers, anoraks … In fact, most upper parts of men’s suits are called jacket. The term is no more only linked to formal styles, but also to casual ones. It is manufactured in various fabrics such as cotton, tweed, wool, nylon, leather or suede.
