George Stanhope, the sixth Baron of Chesterfield, has been immortalized by lending his name to a type of very well known armchair, and for a model of the jacket, because rumors claim to have been the inventor of this piece of clothing still in the middle of the twentieth century XIX. But don’t be fooled by the name, the grandiose, the Chesterfield is one of the overcoats male more common, in addition to being very popular in Europe, especially in England, the homeland of the baron.
Most often made of tweed – this wool rustic whose yarn features coloured beads – but also found in other tissues, and even leather, this kind of overcoat has as main features classic lapel short triangular or pointy, sometimes adorned with a collar of velvet, the breasted which can be single or double, a single slit back and pockets are straight with flaps. The length can vary, but the traditional is knee-length, but specimens ranging up to half of the thigh are not hard to find.
With the time the designers were modifying the model, many elements that were not part of the Chesterfield original have been incorporated to improve the trim or simply to let your visual more differentiated. Dragonas on the shoulders, leather cut outs and buttons in the back that serve to leave the part more acinturada are some of them.
The Chesterfield (in smooth tissue usually appears in the colors brown, gray, lead, black, navy and camel, already the most common standards are the Prince of Wales and window pane, herringbone and pinstriped.
7 Tips on how to use
1 – The appearance-aligned and sisuda of Chesterfield makes it an ideal companion for the suit or usual, since it protects its user from the cold, keeping the visual formal. A good choice for those who work in environments that are conservative.
2 – Even with your air austere, it is not mandatory to use this jacket only with the costume social; jeans, casual shirts and heavy boots can make a look cool for those who want something more hip and young.
3 – The traditional colors mentioned above are the more easy to be found, however the readings of Chesterfield in vivid colors also render combos interesting, like the suggestion above created by Gucci with pants chino and shirt fleece.
4 – Templates minimalist bring only the characteristics of the Chesterfield original, hiding until the buttons with houses covered by fabric, leaving the particularly with a visual extremely clean and sophisticated ideal to be used with formal wear, especially for those who want to keep the discretion.
5 – Some people use this jacket in place of the jacket, certain types look the same with a blazer stretchy, further enhancing the feeling that you do not need the full suit.
6 – Here in a version a little shorter, the Chesterfield doesn’t look so serious, but loses nothing in elegance. Some are as short as a blazer or a jacket, being the favorite of those who like a casual look with a shirt or knit.
7 – Above is a sample of how to combine the piece in a style that makes the middle of the field between the social and the casual, with shirt, knitted pants, which can be twill, denim, tailoring, or chino. The example of the footwear (despite the gaudy, in my opinion) shows very well that the Chesterfield leaves space for the creativity of the one who wears, not imposing any kind of protocol in relation to the parts that accompany it.
