The Jaime Jacket is a casual menswear piece designed to feel quietly smart and easy to wear. It may look simple but it’s full of carefully considered features to elevate it from other ‘over shirt’ style jackets.
The cut features a curved yoke that flows straight into the under sleeve seam which turns into a slit opening at the cuff. This flowing seam travels from cuff to cuff with a wide run & fell seam. The front pockets have a dual opening and the back loop is on the outside of the jacket to create a unique and subtle design detail.
Sizing: Mens sizes XS2 - XL3 / Women's sizes 4 - 20 (with PDF Layers)

The Jaime Jacket is cut to be relaxed but not oversized. Selecting your ‘true size’ will give you a jacket that fits like an over shirt. If you prefer to have more room around the shoulders and chest to layer with thicker jumpers, or if you have a very thick or sturdy fabric we recommend sizing up. We recommend paying attention to the shoulder and sleeve measurements - the pattern comes with 3 sleeve length options so you can choose the right length for you.
