This season sees Brooks Brothers’ iconic Madison Fit 3 Button Sack Model blazer silhouette fitted with Junya Watanabe‘s bomber jacket styling. Brook Brother’s signature navy blazer creates the foundation for the blended jacket. One of the blazers takes design cues from the 1950s U.S. military trench coat that utilizes a khaki-tone nylon quilting that intermixes with the wool from the blazer. The second blazer in the collection is a hybrid design between the quintessential army green bomber jacket. With both blazers, the back silhouette highlights the fusing of both materials, providing an interesting mix between technical and formal fabrics.
The collaboration is only available for limited release in celebration of Brooks Brothers Omotesando location’s one-year anniversary. The items are available online at Brooks Brothers on August 18.
