– Campbell Carey
For the working week your bespoke wardrobe is your suit of armour, but how does a gentleman dress for the weekend? For those off duty occasions when you want to look your best; The Weekend Cut. A bespoke style for a jacket that fits and feels as comfortable as your favourite cardigan, but has the same construction and integrity of a traditional bespoke tailored blazer.
Listening to the requests of our clients, Huntsman’s Creative Director and Co-Head Cutter Campbell Carey has worked to create a new silhouette for the weekend. Taking inspiration from the success of the Unstructured Cashmere jacket from our Autumn-Winter collection, Campbell started by going back to basics, taking the iconic Huntsman one-button house cut, but reinterpreting it for a new style of garment.
The result? A jacket that is unmistakably Huntsman bespoke, but in a cut that unlocks a whole new wardrobe. You’ll love pairing this with your favourite trousers, or denim, mix it with knitwear and washed oxford shirting. Enjoy casual comfort without compromise on style or execution.
Three key things define this jacket. The cloth, cut and the construction. This might be your ‘off duty jacket’ but it has all of the same craftsmanship and handwork as any other Huntsman bespoke garment, and whilst this might feel as comfortable as a cardigan jacket- the Weekend Cut is far from it. With careful cloth choice, and construction details you’ll see all of the difference and unlock a whole new Huntsman wardrobe.
By reducing the amount of crown on the shoulder of the jacket, the silhouette immediately becomes softer and more informal- but this garment doesn’t compromise on it’s structure. Adding thinner shoulder pads and canvases allows the cashmere to drape naturally against your body, whilst retaining its shape.
At a glance it still has all the stylings of a Huntsman garment however, it’s not just subtle changes on the outside but also on the inside that makes this an incredibly comfortable piece of tailoring to wear.
On the outside, it’s a softer shoulder line with thinner padding and a slightly less roped sleeve head. On the inside, we’ve removed the horsehair canvas and doubled up on the body canvas which allows us to retain our ever flattering chest line but introduce a softer drape.
Adding thinner padding in the sleeves allows for ease of movement and by reducing the weight of the canvasing, the weight of the jacket is reduced, making it a pleasure to wear even in warmer weather.
The Weekend Cut is lined where required, through the shoulder and the sleeve, but as you’ll experience, the supreme softness of the cashmere cloth is designed to be worn without the necessity of a full lining. You’ll see and feel the difference from your classic weekday Huntsman tailoring as soon as you put this jacket on. For a feel and look that is quite unique from your classic Huntsman tailoring, but that you’ll love just as much.
