Back in April we ran an interview with Ken Yamamoto, the man behind Japan’s Boston Tailor. Yamamoto-san has kindly donated a superb piece of craftsmanship for one lucky winner who can wear a size 38 short.
The navy jacket is made of Irish linen supplied by Spence Bryson. It features an undarted chest, triple patch pockets, partial lining, hook vent, and working buttonholes with two on the cuff. The critical measurements are as follows: the length is 29 inches from the bottom of the collar. The chest is a tad over 20 and the shoulders a tad over 18.
To enter the contest, leave a one-sentence comment telling us how you’d wear the jacket. For example, with popped polo shirt and boat shoes, with khakis and blue buttondown, or, in my case, a club tie, pinned club-collar shirt, and bit loafers. Winner will be chosen by random number-generator. We’ll keep the contest open for a week. One entry per person or you will be hounded by the Furies. And if you’re loaded, let the financially challenged have a shot.
Thanks again to Yamamoto-san for his generous donation. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD
