The Sahariana

Today I get the chance to review what was undoubtedly one of my favourite pieces shown during last Pitti: MAN 1924's interpretation of the Safari Jacket. Originally the go-to choice of British Military stationed in Africa, the Safari Jacket or Sahariana served the purposed of functionality, with added mobility and comfort meeting the perfect fabric weight to withstand lower temperatures during the evening.

Its distinctive features are reminiscent of the military universe: four or more expandable flap pockets, belted waist and epaulettes. The popularity of the Safari Jacket followed the post-war period, when army surplus was easily found and its unique aesthetic and relaxed nature quickly became a favourite within menswear enthusiasts, namely workwear aficionados. However, in recent years, several brands and designers have re-discovered the underlying beauty of the garment, incorporating a variety of updated versions suitable for more casual or polished attires.

This version from MAN 1924 is the perfect example. Featuring a beautiful army green herringbone cotton/linen fabric, the perfect looser fit makes it a layering essential both for summer days or the upcoming transitional season. Generous pockets allow to carry all everyday essentials, the adjustable waist belt provides a flattering silhouette even when worn unbuttoned and the small details such as horn buttons and epaulettes just add that extra bit of flare. Here I went for a more casual approach, layering it over a houndstooth vest, spread collar shirt and paisley scarf, along with white denim and loafers. Although this look might translate the core essence of the jacket, I cant wait to pair it with more formal attires.

Details: Sahariana by MAN 1924, houndstooth vest by Purificacion Garcia, MTM spread collar shirt, white denim and paisley scarf by Massimo Dutti, grained leather penny loafers by Bexley, aviators by Ray-Ban, vintage bracelets.

Model and Styling: Miguel Amaral Vieira
