After carrying the flag for the Urban Lumberjack look (and, before that, the Urban Equestrian look), Freeman’s Sporting Club has learned a few new tricks.
To start with, they’re locavores. Their newly launched e-commerce site marks items by how close to the NYC shop they were stitched together. Usually, the answer is the garment district of Manhattan…but it’s nice to know for sure.
They’re also making a strong case for the one-button blazer with this irish linen number. It’s a sharp pattern, just rustic enough to keep you from being confused for a banker—but most of all, it’s as far from workwear as you can get.
So far we’re calling it Urban Gentleman, but we’re open to suggestions.
