Ludlow Sport Coat In Houndstooth Italian Linen

This version of J.Crew's Ludlow sport coat is made from houndstooth-patterned Italian linen from the Carpini mill (established in 1939 in the Tuscany region of Italy, its untraditional techniques produce uncommonly good fabrics). Thanks to the jacket's unconstructed design (translation: no shoulder pads, interior canvas, or chest piece), it's a more casual and less structured take on the classic Ludlow—so it's equally at home, in the office, or about town.
