Ascot Chang X The Armoury

Ascot Chang x The Armoury


A preliminary sample of the ACxTA collaboration Linen Safari Jacket. Done in a Solbiati Linen, the first run will be in a true navy, rather than this indigo, and with matte horn buttons rather than the corozo on this one.

Sizes will run from S – XL, this being the XL I am wearing. For reference, I am 180cm and 95kgs, a 38inch waist.

We are taking pre-orders now, so email me at if we can help.

I love this coat, and the shirt-jacket in general. When it’s jeans-warm in LA, one of my most basic uniforms is jeans, white linen shirt, desert boots and an old Kenyan safari jacket I thrifted a few years ago. When the weather gets cooler, the outfit doesn’t change much – the desert boots get swapped for a more standard crepe-sole chukka, the linen for oxford cloth and the safari jacket for an old LL Bean chamois shirt. In both cases, that top layer finishes the look without adding much formality. Perfect for a casual Saturday.
