Time for a New Suit? We Hear You!

Time for a New Suit? We Hear You!

Inspired by menswear tailoring, the Vanessa Jacket takes its cue from the traditional double breasted jacket in to a more relaxed, slightly boxy silhouette.

The shoulder is lightly padded for structure but the shoulder line is extended and a little dropped. 

Framed with peak lapels and contrasted with shell buttons, the jacket finishes just below the hip line.

The Vanessa is crafted from exceptional quality mid weight 100% wool with a faint herringbone texture and the beautiful Sand colour way is the perfect modern neutral.  

It looks slick as a suit with the matching trouser but this shape would also look great with a leaner leg like our Slim Trouser or your favourite skinny jeans or pants.

The Vanessa Pant is our newest trouser shape based on the fit of our flattering Calder Jeans. 

Taking inspiration from Sailor Pants of the 1930s (and maybe a little reprise from the 1970s) these stylish trousers are high rise, sitting on your true waist with a front fly zip, an extended waistband and finished with a beautiful contrast shell button.

They are easy fitting on the thigh and then A-line to a wide leg with a cuff finish.  The wool is lined with a silky and breathable Japanese cupro. 

Team these with a fitted top like our Merino Skivvy to accentuate the silhouette.

Make them sharp with our Classic or Caroline Shirts or let them party with our Prudence Shirt in Lilac Silk. 

Both the Vanessa Jacket and Pant in Sand are part of our Limited Edition Collection so don't miss out!



We make each piece in our Ethical Clothing Australia certified factory located in Melbourne. Each garment is sewn by one of our incredible machinists that have over 20 years industry experience.
