Safari Jacket - Back to the Modern Crowd
As the name suggests, it started in the mid 1930s intended for use in the Safari.
"From its military origins during the Second Boer War at the turn of the 20th century – when the British Army were stationed in South Africa – to its latest resurgence on the catwalks, the safari jacket is steeped in rich history and countless revivals and redesigns." - Kim Silverman (thegentlemanjournal)
Alternatively black t-shirt with linen trousers for a dapper look
Pair it with your white t-shirt & trousers to a semi formal event
The safari jacket now has reinvented itself in the tailoring industry due to it's practicality and functionality. Traditionally it has four pockets patched on the front panels usually with buttons. Along with a belt or sash so that everything stays near to your body.
Here at SAKAL, we keep it true to the military roots of the jacket yet remaining it’s classic aspects.
