I always dreamt about this emblematic jacket: casual but worthy. In order to be simple, half way between the English Jacket, elegant, and the simple jacket, very casual. To resume, I wanted to express the French taste, elegant and discreet, chic without being mannered !
This is how the Maubourg was born. Made in France, you can wear it in the city as in the countryside. The Maubourg is sophisticated but easy to wear.
In order to create this Jacket the most difficult was to find a workshop. It had to gather many difficult points :
- A mutual understanding
- A similar taste
- The ability to create exclusive collections
- A keen Price
With a lot of pleasure, we found in the south west of France near Montauban, a family workshop gathering all our wishes. Truly Marvelous !
Thus, the Maubourg Jacket was created, declined following the seasons.
The idea is to respond to each season, without making the jacket too exclusive for one or the other. For winter, of course, flannel and felted blends with cashmere are interesting. And in summer, cotton and faded linen are wonderful for lightness.
We work exclusively with fabrics made in Western Europe. Vitale Barberis in Italy or Gorina in Spain provide us with sublime wools. SubAlpino and Solbiati in Italy, Brisbane Moss in the british isles handle linen and cottons.
A work of trust with reputable mills, to the delight of our workshop and ultimately of you!
A SUBLIME TINT
The aim of the Maubourg: to be a versatile and practical jacket, at ease in all situations, in the city as well as in the countryside. We select convenient colours, the essential navy, sometimes slate blue, often olive green or chestnut. To compose elegant outfits!
A COMFORTABLE AND ADJUSTED CUT
It wasn't easy to define this cut. We had to resolve a difficult equation: a modern and young line with comfort and ease especially with a pullover.
We wanted both the appearance and body language to be free. This could have led to a loose jacket. At the same time, we wanted an adventurous and slender line so the Maubourg could be charismatic.
The Maubourg is interfacing free, almost unlined with no padding, no shoulder pad. It's an unstructured jacket.
The Maubourg is recognizable thanks to her details that distinguish her from the classic English jacket :
- Funnel neck with extended tab, as the biker's jacket, to keep warm
- Bound buttonholes, delicates as on the Austrian jackets
- Large patch pockets: comfortables you can put whatever you want
- You can roll-up the sleeves and create cuff hem
- 2 inside pockets
All of this details distinguish the Maubourg and make it perfectly recognizable. A sort of icon almost workwear. Flamboyance combined with discreetness. The Maubourg is a sort of Austrian jacket without the germanic folkloric side.
