Moleskin. Soft and durable.
Moleskin is a heavy cotton fabric that is woven with extremely strong warp yarns and an extreme tightness of weft yarns (up to 400 threads per inch) in satin weave. To create this inimitable softness and grip, which characterizes the material, the finished cloth is sanded and roughened in several steps. We obtain the goods from Carlo Bonomi in Lombardy, cotton weavers since 1860, where all of these processes and more are performed under one roof: the selection of the best raw cottons, the weaving and dyeing – and the refining of cotton fabrics. So that the machines can handle the high thread count, the moleskin is made on looms that need to run slower than usual.
The moleskin jacket: a light jacket. Informal, but by no means formless.
This jacket combines the basic pattern and style of a classic men‘s suit jacket and the soft processing of the socalled light jackets – in this case, the term „light“ is to be understood as the French word „léger“, meaning casual, and does not refer to the moleskin material used for this garment. The front of the jacket is reinforced, without stiffening, with horsehair inserts: the front falls softer and the lines flow without the jacket losing its shape. The absence of shoulder pads results in a smooth transition into the sleeves.
