Our first tailored jacket class, the Francine Jacket was inspired by a gorgeous vintage suit one of our lovely customers was wearing. Originally utterly 1940s in style, we tweaked the design to bring it up to date and voila, the Francine Jacket was born! A wardrobe staple, made out of a suiting worsted wool it’s perfect to wear to work with your Ultimate Pencil Skirt or Ultimate Trousers. Made in a heavier wool it’s warm enough to wear as a short coat. The style gives a subtle nod to the 40s but has been modernised in design and fit. With clever darts and shaping, this jacket can be tailored to fit your figure.
