Safari Jacket | For Mr. Pappas

When Mr. Pappas arrived with a 4 meter length of lovely dark taupe gabardine from his grandmother's fabric collection and a handful of prints showing classic safari jackets styled like those from the early part of the last century, I couldn't help but become instantly excited about offering his wardrobe my take on such a piece. The result is quite a thrill for me (the center box pleat in back being the biggest delight for me), and sits nicely beside the tastes of the east currently on display here in my showroom.
