Moleskin. Soft and durable.
Moleskin is a heavy cotton fabric that iswoven with extremely strong warpyarns and an extreme tightness of weftyarns (up to 400 threads per inch) insatin weave. To create this inimitablesoftness and grip, which characterizesthe material, the finished cloth is sandedand roughened in several steps.We obtain the goods from Carlo Bonomiin Lombardy, cotton weavers since1860, where all of these processes andmore are performed under one roof: theselection of the best raw cottons, theweaving and dyeing – and the refiningof cotton fabrics. So that the machinescan handle the high thread count, themoleskin is made on looms that needto run slower than usual.
The moleskin jacket: a light jacket. Informal, but by no means formless.
This jacket combines the basic patternand style of a classic men‘s suit jacketand the soft processing of the socalledlight jackets – in this case, theterm „light“ is to be understood as theFrench word „léger“, meaning casual,and does not refer to the moleskinmaterial used for this garment. Thefront of the jacket is reinforced, withoutstiffening, with horsehair inserts: thefront falls softer and the lines flowwithout the jacket losing its shape. Theabsence of shoulder pads results in asmooth transition into the sleeves.
