Griffin Imber Jacket

The Imber Jacket design has been evolving for over 15 years, most recently introduced last season as the Bratton jacket, the Imber has been developed for the Autumn/Winter 10 collection. The pattern was originally cut by reknowned pattern cutter the late Charlie Hunter who was a close friend of Jeff’s and helped develop many of the early Griffin Laundry designs, he also worked for established design houses such as Hussein Chalayan and Kenzo.

This season, they have worked closely on the fit and added more flare to the back of the jacket. To add a little more warmth for the winter months They’ve also fitted the jacket with a removable gilet liner, made from Woolrich Wool this gilet buttons on to the inside of the jacket. The complex hunting style pockets are what make this jacket really distinct, these discreet chest pockets add to the unique pannelling of this tailored jacket. The sleeves are sculptured for a fantastic fit and the fabric a great quality waxed cotton. Made in Italy this jacket is a Limited Edition product with only 50 pieces available worldwide. Buy here
