The Mossy Paperbark Handwoven Raw Silk Jacket is your classic go-to when you’re meeting up with the lads for a “jolly good time, old boy!”. Its preppy throwback motif is to the Bloke Stripe of the rowing blazer but it is also this which creates effortless distinction from everything else in your collection. Suffice to say, it turns heads!
The pastel green silks are inspired by the dense moss of the forest floor, and the pale, neutral tones take their inspiration from the iconic paperbark trees native to Australia and introduced to Florida.
DRESS IT UP: French Navy or Black shirt over Sage chinos or pastel green trousers.
DRESS IT DOWN: For summer lunch it will all be about Lavender or Navy chinos and an unironed off-white linen shirt.
FUN FACT: While native to Australia, Paperbark was introduced to Florida in the early 20th Century to be a source of excellent hardwood timber for furniture and ornaments. The thirstiest of trees, it also dried up wetlands and reduced mosquito populations but… it is ridiculously flammable and is now considered a weed due to its potential to fuel wildfires.
