On the hunt for the perfect slouchy linen blazer? Here it is, from French brand, Hartford, with a notched lapel, pockets, and slightly oversized fit. Great with everything from jeans and white denim to the matching linen trouser for a casual suiting look.
Imagined by Yves Chareton in the United States in 1979, the Hartford project revisits American wardrobe classics, bringing them a twist of modernity. A decisive meeting was to launch the adventure, when a New York manufacturer sold him old stocks of Oxford and chambray fabric that were impossible to find on the market and which were ideal to make the first vintage-inspired Hartford shirts. The studio returned to Paris a few years later. The brand structured itself and began its commercial development: the collections grew in size and became synonymous with faultless materials and style. By mixing European influences with a very west coast casual style, the brand quickly gained cult status on both sides of the Atlantic. It’s not surprising that Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton soon became unconditional fans.
