L'Enfant Buggy Back Blazer
BEHIND THE COLLECTION
Inspired by Pierre L'Enfant
Our Buggy-Back Blazer is named after Pierre L’Enfant, the renowned French-born American architect and civil engineer who designed the city plan for Washington, DC, in 1791. We took inspiration from L’Enfant’s aesthetic and proclivity for repetition, simplicity, and rich foundations. The result is a collection of four timeless and versatile blazers that seamlessly transition from work to play.
‘Buggy-back’ refers to the curved two-piece lining that overlaps across the back and covers the shoulders. This half-lined construction gives just enough form and structure without the bulk often found in fully-lined blazers. Our Buggy-Back Blazers have slimmer lapels, two-button fastening, and functioning surgeon's cuffs (a nod to the sartorial heritage of Savile Row). They're made in light, durable wools and can comfortably be worn in any season.
As is only fitting for a collection inspired by L'Enfant, we photographed our blazers in Washington, DC, near 7th and D Street, Southwest.
