Half Norfolk Jacket
The Half Norfolk.
French revolutionaries sharpened the guillotine.
Russian anarchists tossed bombs.
In the 1920s and ‘30s, however, young Englishmen quietly wore their country tweeds to London.
The result was a massive acquiescence of power by conventional-thinking starched-collar types.
Easy, confident tweed can have a similar effect in America today. When you look like a master of the hunt, brain cells bred for obedience just helplessly go off.
To be worn kindly: this splendid estate jacket comes with all the traditional country details: three pleated patch “Half Norfolk” style pockets. Four buttons at center front. Classic hunting jacket notched lapel, button cuffs, and shooting pads at shoulders. Vintage-style buttons with gripped texture are a favorite of hunters, as they’re easier to button when wet. Bemberg lining at sleeves and body. Rich wide-wale corduroy at undercollar and cuff facing.
The Half Norfolk Jacket (No. 6890), as described. Remarkably well-tailored. Imbued with the spirit of 18th-century gentry. Imported.
