A radical twist on our traditional worker jacket styles. This gorgeous unisex jacket is handmade in English-knitted, heavyweight cotton jersey.

At a glance it looks like a Melton wool, but the touch is relaxed and forgiving, though tough, like a fabulously good quality sweatshirt.

We've never seen a jacket quite like it.

The Lighthouse Jacket immediately feels as though you've worn it all your life: instantly comfortable. Yet it's also smart (in a relaxed kind of way) and tough enough for anything. 

Hand-built in our own Southwold workshop: Britain's most easterly atelier!

The fabric is a super heavyweight (560gsm) 100% organic combed cotton, knitted in England.

The Corozo (nut) buttons are made for us in the Cotswolds by England's only traditional button manufacturer, on the last purpose-made button-making machines left in the UK!

This is an unlined jacket, with beautiful internal stitching and detail, comfortably cut to layer over a sweater, or just a Tee, for all year round use.

Features one internal and three external pockets.

Sizing guide

We've worked hard to make our sizing system as straightforward and accurate as possible.

We provide a nominal traditional 'chest size' but we urge you to go by 'flat width' sizes. It's easy to do...

We recommend that you take a favourite jacket that you know fits you, button it up and lay it flat on a table.

With a tape measure, carefully measure the width from side to side from armpit to armpit (where the sleeve joins the armhole). This is the Flat Width (see chart below), and it is the most important measurement.

If your favourite jacket has a flat width of say 57.5cm, then choose a Medium. If it's 60 then choose a large.

This jacket is designed to wear over a shirt or thin sweater. If you think you want to wear a thick jumper under your new jacket then consider going up a size.

Bear in mind that our cotton jackets can shrink a little in first washing (you can machine wash this garment, but never wash at more than 30 degrees).

All measurements are a guide only. These are handmade products and may have minor size variation. If you find you've ordered the wrong size, don't worry: return it to us unworn within 30 days and we will send an alternative size.

Sizing is as per Southwold Luxury Worker Jacket (see table below).

Versatile

A comfortable, warm, well made, unusual, and most of all versatile jersey jacket. It's like something Brunel or any of his working class mates would have worn. Clearly hard wearing and weirdly Victorian in its style. Worn it every day since receiving it...casually, scruffily and, oddly, semi-formally, too. Outstanding piece of kit.

On a tangential note, my wife also likes the style but bemoans the lack of female models in the Blacksore catalogue. Bit of a wokey comment I guess, but the jacket is superb.
