Monocle essential moleskin jacket



Few materials beat moleskin when it comes to comfort. The fabric is made from heavy cotton that’s woven and then shorn, resulting in its soft texture. For this jacket, the latest addition to monocle’s essential wardrobe collection, we’ve sourced fabric from one of the best moleskin makers around: a factory founded in 1901 in Yorkshire, England. The garment is then sewn in Portugal; it comes in shades of camel or navy, with a regular fit and generous pockets.

Material: Cotton.
Colours: Camel or navy.
Sizes: s–xl.
Made in: Portugal.
