Jort Navy Plain Dinner Jacket
$699 USD
For the origins of eveningwear, British tailoring circles point unanimously to Baron Edward George Bulwer-Lytton. A novelist, politician and dandy, in his novel Pelham (1828), he ridiculed the colourful eveningwear that was popular at the time, suggesting that the elite wear black only. Nobility and dignitaries alike followed Lytton’s advice. Many years later, Edward VIII (1874-1972) would be the first to start tampering with the long-held tradition of black. The judgement of this English prince was often in dispute, but he did have a flawless sense of fashion. He adopted midnight blue as his signature colour, a choice honoured today by the JORT collection in this single-breasted smoking jacket. It’s woven on the looms of the Italian specialist Agnona and made in glamorous silk. Light and cool - let’s party!

natural, pleated shoulder

This intricate, natural shoulder is pleated, and stitched by hand. The result is a delicately structured finish that exudes expert craftsmanship—for connoisseurs, a pleat is recognized as a sign of traditional Italian tailoring.

silk covered shawl collar

Influenced by the traditional smoking jacket, a shawl is a common style of lapel ordinarily found on tuxedos. Less angular than a peak, it creates a smooth, streamlined aesthetic that makes for an elegant finish.

2-button single-breasted

One of the most common designs for up-to-date suiting, 2-button fronts on single-breasted cuts provide the greatest range of versatility. Found on both elegant high-end fits, and well as those that are more relaxed, 2-button single-breasted suits are apt for just about any occasion—just remember to button only the top when standing.

Silk trimmed jetted pocket

Perhaps the most formal type of jacket pocket, jetted pockets are thin slits sewn into the jacket itself. More for style than for function, the jetted pockets of our tuxedos are trimmed with silk for a touch of traditional elegance.
