I got my cashmere blazer from Graham Browne this week, commissioned a couple of months ago following the plan more more soft, unlined jackets (post here).

The cloth is from W Bill, cashmere and in a rather chunky, open weave that makes it even softer to wear. The buttons are wooden, from haberdashers MacCulloch & Wallis just off Bond Street. Three button, it features patch breast and hip pockets, each with their own welt. There is also a collar tab that fastens across the neck and a button under the lapel to button there. I also went for a half lining, to enhance that sweater-like design.

Where can I buy it?

The blazer looks very good, and perfect fit. But the photo only shows your upper body, not sure what it looks in full.

Do you need an appointment to be measured at Graham Browne, or can one just pop in? Also, am I right in recalling that suits start at around £ 800?

Thanks,

Sharp, I really like that.

Stellar looking jacket. Not sure about the wooden buttons though.

Great cut, and I like the buttons, they work well with the grey. Don’t Graham Browne do a sale around this time of the year?

Simon–

I love this fabric. What is this particular weave called? (Looks like a diagonal basketweave.

You’re probably going to hate this, but I think jacket will improve with age as it looses some of its (rigid) shape, and becomes more fluid and draped.

Simon,

Do you still wear this jacket? How has your view on this jacket evolved over the years?

Thanks,

I checked out the Harrisons of Edinburgh website and checked the W. BILL Coatings bunch and while I didn’t see one in cashmere, I did fine some very similar and beautiful patterns in Lambswool. Hope this helps.
Many thanks
Lindsay
