Beyond shoes: The Allen Edmonds sport jacket

Allen Edmonds is synonymous with American-made shoes, to say nothing of its outstanding customer service and almost legendary recrafting program that transform your shoes into like-new condition.

The Wisconsin-based shoemaker has expanded its range beyond classic shoes to also include made in America sport jackets (see here and here) and other clothing offerings.

While sizes are, regretfully, a bit limited, Allen Edmonds clearly paid close attention to the details when designing both sport jackets.

Each jacket is half-canvassed — an exception value at this price — and feature additional details such as mother of pearl buttons, fancy lining, a colorful under-collar and side vents. All this for under $500 — $495 to be precise.

The non-functioning cuffs without faux surgeon’s cuffs stitching may disappoint some discerning gentlemen, but this makes it simple for the seamstress at the local dry cleaner to shorten the sleeves and ensure a perfect fit.
