1ST PAT-RN Spring Summer 2013 Knitted Blazers

Beautiful jackets inspired by traditional British and Italian workwear and suiting from 1ST PAT-RN, designed by brothers Cristiano and Alessio Berto. Named after the “First Pattern, a term of military provenience which identifies the real first prototype of a garment” the label, founded in 2011, offers a small line of Made in Italy garments with quality at the forefront. These blazers may offer a nod to the ubiquitous blue moleskin work jacket, however the design and build of the ‘Cavalry’ and ‘Oxford’ has much more in common with classic tailoring. “Made with a special machine (only two in Italy) that can work knit keeping it firm like a woven fabric” these soft yet fitted jackets come complete with real horn or real bone buttons, button holes made with small bar tacks as per your friendly local tailor woud, with quality jersey used to line and reinforce. Take a look in the smartly styled shots in the gallery.
