The "Vittorio" is our signature unstructured sportcoat crafted in Portugal. It pairs beautifully with our matching Porto trouser.
We set out to make the absolute best off-the-rack suit separates in the world for the money. It's exceptionally light, very comfortable, and tailored for a sharp, athletic fit. It pairs beautifully with a matching Walt Porto trouser, or can be worn on its own as a separate jacket.
Each Vittorio is meticulously crafted at our factory in Portugal. Read through our "Origin & Construction" section to get the full details. But here's the short story: this is the absolutely best and most comfortable sportcoat on Earth for the money.
This particular jacket is made in 100% virgin wool pique from the esteemed Vitale Barberis mill of Italy. This 4-season fabric is a perfectly balanced dress wool.
The single-breasted Vittorio has classic notch lapels, double rear vents, and an unlined body with a butterfly liner in the sleeves and upper shoulders. It has open patch pockets at the hip, a welt pocket at the breast, and two interior pockets. The buttons are dark brown unbreakable resin and the lapels and body feature genuine pick-stitching at the edges.
Note: All measurements are shown in inches. "Chest" is measured from one armpit seam to the other. "Sleeves" is measured from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff. "Shoulder" is measured from one shoulder seam to the other. "Length" is measured from the base of the rear collar to the bottom of the garment.
The Vittorio Sportcoat is true to size and generally consistent with our in-house Epaulet shirts. The size chart below illustrates how they match up. This is an approximation, as tailored clothing can't be cut identically to shirting. Generally, most customers who wear an Epaulet medium will get a solid fit in a 38 jacket.
Please note that each jacket has approximately 1 inch of seam allowance in the sleeves that can be let out, and 1 inch of seam allowance in the chest and body. Many customers will find this to have a great fit "off the rack." However, it's common for a proper sportcoat to require a little bit of tailoring to fit exactly right. This is a solid item and you'll find that quality tailoring is worth the investment.
Origin & Construction
Woven in Italy, 100% virgin wool.
The Vittorio is designed to be a formal coat that doesn't feel like one. It sits softly on your shoulders and flows with your body. It's comfortable enough to wear casually but polished enough to be worn into the boardroom. The Vittorio wears as lightly as a shirt without sacrificing the polish of fine tailoring.
Like any proper sportcoat, the Vittorio has genuine horsehair canvassing in the upper chest and shoulder. This maintains the body's proper drape and ensures that its good looks endure through repeated use and wear. The precise lapel roll is achieved by a German tropical-weight interlining that provides integrity without defining structure structure. This not only keeps the jacket soft and comfortable, but also makes the jacket work for a variety of physiques. It works on slender, athletic, and muscular builds - and either normal or sloped shoulders - as the soft lines are able to flow over the contours of your body without creasing.
