Let’s start with the obvious: The checked sports jacket is not subtle. It was once the preserve of country club types, weekending 80s bankers and men too old to care about modesty. However, these days most urbanites are willing to subscribe to more outre outfits, and this natty number is certainly one way to go about it. The cut, as with most modern tailoring, is slimmer and less boxy — making it the perfect partner for chinos or shorts for the summer months.
