A.P.C. Heavyweight Harris Tweed Jacket

French ready-to-wear brand A.P.C. is easily one of my favourites. Founded in 1988 by Tunisian born Designer Jean Touitou, they continue to impress season after season with their beautiful high quality garments.

The fall collection is now available, but one piece that really stood for me, was this wonderful sartorial city jacket. Woven in the historical Harris Tweed, this jacket combines contemporary Parisian style with heritage fabrics.

What makes this jacket stand out, is the superb attention to detail. From the cream shearling collar and epaulettes to the customized zip/button front and four pockets. The jacket is a bit pricey at £485, but this is a classic look you will be able to wear season after season.
