There’s nothing odd about the odd jacket…

“A jacket tells the world you are open to fun…Anytime I see a man playing golf or tennis in a his jacket, I know he and I could be friends.”

– Luciano Barbera

Our friend, Mr. Barbera, has it right.  The odd jacket (named so because it does not match with a pair of suit trousers) lets the world know you’re not one to be confined to the bland uniform of the IBM workplace.  As he says above, you’re up for fun and not afraid of some individuality.

Here at the M. S., the odd jacket is the wardrobe foundation for the man with style, and we have plenty of them just for you if you should be that man.  We’re happy to present selections from Canali, Samuelsohn, Southwick, Empire, Crittenden, Hickey Freeman and a particularly eye catching jacket from Coppley. They all match wonderfully with our trouser separates, shirts from Eton and a variety of neckwear.  Don’t forget a pocket square for an extra bit of sprezzatura.

If the odd jacket presents a challenge when it comes to the art of matching – let our professional staff assist.  You’ll leave looking like a million, and ready for fun.

Southwick tan hounds

If you think you saw this in the fall, you’d be right.  But it was in a heavy wool.  This good looking number is a silk and cotton version.  Cool enough for summer and equally so on you.  Paired here with cream trousers.
