Shale is a fine-grained, clastic sedimentary rock composed of mud that is a mix of flakes of clay minerals and tiny fragments (silt-sized particles) of other minerals, especially quartz and calcite. Shale typically breaks into thin layers, often splintery and usually parallel to the bedding plane.
In Joe Bananas Shale Raw Silk Jacket, the lines of the shale are echoed in the herringbone weave. With the black, grey and white silk, what results is an elegant and distinguished jacket with layers of appeal.
DRESS IT UP: Both the Joe Bananas Shale 'Herringbone With A Twist' and the Light Shale Jacket' pair superbly with a printed shirt and dress black trousers for a night out on the town.
DRESS IT DOWN: Soften the edgy monochrome with an earthen Crimson, Ruby or Salmon toned shirt and a pair of black or grey denim below.
FUN FACT: Shale accounts for about 55% of the world's sedimentary rock and is considered mankind's wonder-mineral as it has so many applications, including being used to make: bricks, pottery, ceramics, cement, natural gas and oil.
