If you’re looking for something to smarten up your look without being over dressed, then look no further than a Houndstooth sports jacket. The Houndstooth jacket is ideal for weekend brunches with the family or a dinner date. The Houndstooth never veers away from sartorial traditions but still manages to be tailored for the modern man.
This jacket looks professional and sleek with a crisp white cotton shirt and dark chinos. It also works perfectly with black ripped jeans and a Tee, for a casual vibe.
It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either, you’ll be able to pick up a vintage sports jacket like this from your local charity shop. The beauty of finding one there is that you could find a hidden gem from a well established tailor at a fraction of the price.
The Houndstooth or Pied-de-Poule design actually originated in Scotland in the 1800’s and has certainly stood the test if time with its duotone pattern. It is known for its abstract four pointed shape, commonly in black and white. Sizes can vary with Houndstooth but is most often seen as above, although a smaller pattern can also be found, sometimes known as Puppytooth.
