Cropped jackets have been linked with cattle herders throughout Mexico and with the American cowboy of the wild west, which promoted an image of toughness and beautiful tailoring.
In the 1960s the cropped jacket was popularised by the first lady Jackie Kennedy who was known for her great sense of style and the classic channel cropped jacket with matching skirt suit and pillar box hat. The office drama Mad Men set in the 1960s also reflected the popularity of cropped jacket of the time.
The cropped jacket was essentially a short jacket with a hemline that sits at waist length, however in the 1980’s the cropped jacket re-emerged losing it formal style, fitting into a wide variety of fashion genre styles, becoming even shorter with the hemline rising to the ribcage.
This lovely cropped black jacket was commissioned by a client and it a mix of cotton and viscose, being black makes it a very versatile addition to any wardrobe, as it can be worn with a dress for a more formal look or jeans for a casual informal look.
