A product which has been requested over the years, our popular overshirt in luxurious suede. Made as a collaboration between ourselves, Luca Avitabile and Rifugio in Naples.

The overshirt takes the classic shape from our linen version but made in the finest tobacco suede.

Simon says "I was also really pleased with the colour. I wanted something that could be versatile. As I started to wear this colour - pictured - the more I liked it. It’s more muted than the tobacco you normally see in menswear (and than the Linen Overshirts) and darker too"

The overshirt has all the nice details of the Linen Overshirt

  • Deep, flapped chest pockets 
  • Hand pockets that are hidden discreetly below
  • Internal patch pocket on the hip (above)
  • Variegated horn buttons
  • Shirt cuffs, enabling them to be rolled back in warmer weather (below)
  • A collar that looks good up or down, and folds elegantly forward at the ends when up

The only changes from the linen overshirt are that the box pleat has been removed (as it didn’t work that well in suede) and the hips have been enlarged slightly (as they stick more there than the linen). 

The buttonholes, collar and so on are not sewn by hand, but the work throughout is fine and precise - the level of work you’d expect for this quality of material. I particularly like the way the top of the pockets and the seam above them are finished.
