LC Seminal Glen Plaid Suit Jacket
Not even Miles Davis knew how cool it was when his nonet gave birth to cool jazz. The cats just wanted something lighter and less busy, a slow running stream as opposed to the machine-gun rapids of Charlie Parker. Cool, as it were, happened by accident.
Isn’t that always the way with the seminal? The purveyors are totally unaware, simply doing what they do in the way they do it. It’s the rest of us who can’t take our eyes off it.
You knew this of course.
The Seminal Glen Plaid Suit Jacket (No. 5354). Luxurious super 100s tropical-weight wool in an exceptional glen plaid we discovered in the UK after an exhaustive search that resulted in a few missed trains, an impromptu trip to Paris, a wonderful fish stew in Glasgow, and a 100 pound/sterling charge not to dine somewhere (after we missed the reservation). Hopefully it was worth it. Single-breasted. Notched collar with lapel and functional boutonniere on left lapel. Black felt undercollar. Two black corozo buttons down center front. Standard shoulder pads. Four vertical-stacked buttons at sleeve cuff. Angled-welt pocket at wearer’s left chest. Single-welt pockets with flaps at right and left hips. Double-welt pockets at inside right and left chest (wearer’s right has button closure). Waist-shaping darts. Double back vents. Fully lined in black satin. Made in Portugal.
