The sack suit may have been an interpretation of the fashionable men’s suit most heavily pushed by Ralph Lauren, but they’re not the only to experiment with the style. After all, loose fitting men’s clothing is a trend for the coming season. So it was that Burberry Prorsum’s chief creative director Christopher Bailey gave his own take on the cut in the fashion house’s autumn / winter 2011 collection.
Loam coloured and styled in a micro-checked tweed, the suit features a notched lapel, two button tailored jacket. Most notable for its interpretation of a 60s sack suit, an interpretation that can easily be labelled as both highly 60s and British, it also stands out for just how close to the chest the jacket’s buttons sit; men’s fashion generally tends towards lower placed buttons at present.
