Since 1909, Haspel has made its name as the leading purveyor of seersucker.
But the company is currently expanding its offerings, some of which were on display at a recent trip to its New York showroom.
What most caught my eye were a dozen natty tweed sportcoats that Haspel will be releasing in fall of this year. Many of the jackets featured perfectly natural shoulders and a slightly trimmer lapel. Button stances were largely two-button and darted, so this will come down to what’s more important to you: natural shoulders or button stance (I’m on the shoulder side).
The trim lapels will also entice many, as will the affordable price of $395. Nordstrom, as well as select specialty stores across the country, will be the primary sales outlet.
Below are a couple more examples of what to expect from Haspel for Fall/Winter 2011. — CC
