Sports jacket

The sports jacket is an important part of men’s outerwear in the Western world. Jackets are buttoned up at the front and have a collar which lies down flat (lapels), somewhat similar to shirts. Jackets come in many variants, for example with a single or double row of buttons and either a central single vent or two side vents. Combined with a shirt and tie, the sports jacket can be worn either at the office or on formal occasions. It is also suitable for leisurewear, if worn with casual chinos or jeans in combination with a polo shirt or a t-shirt.
