Founded in Osaka, Japan in 1954, Ring Jacket creates ready-to-wear with the quality and fit of custom-made clothing. The brand incorporates both handmade and machine-based constructions, and often works with mills on unique cloths. For Fall/Winter 2015, the brand looks to Japanese, British and American tastes, delivering a well-groomed, distinctly masculine collection.
The new range sees options at all levels of formality, from suiting to sweatpants, and often mixes the two: for example, a maroon sport coat and a navy turtleneck are paired with heather grey sweatpants and blue trainers. Our favorite pieces include a green checkered sport coat and double-breasted navy coat, the latter of which is seen in a flattering, fitted cut that minimizes bulk. As promised, the entire collection is a study in proper fit — this is what should come up when you’re Googling #menswear.
Fall/Winter 2015 marks Ring Jacket's first US launch. Shop a small selection from the brand at the Armoury now and watch out for its full fall release come September. Prices range from $1,200 for jackets and $1,500 for suits.
