While attending market week, I caught up with the Capsule team for a tour of some of the new brand on the market. I was asked by the Capsule team to pick out on brand that stood out from the rest. See below for my top choice.

Item: Westage & Co Jacket
For Max, the bright fabrics and unique details from Korean brand Westage & Co. proved an irresistible combination.
What drew you to this particular piece?
The vibrant colors of the garments drew my attention. The smaller details such as the Korean symbol on the reverse side of the collar, and mother of pearl lapel decoration were also a great touch.
“This has a very old American & British lifestyle feel”
How does this piece work with your wardrobe or aesthetic?
This has a very Old American & British lifestyle feel to it. I like the tailored, relaxed feel this jacket has to it. In order to make this work within my wardrobe I would have to remember one thing: don’t take myself too seriously.
What item from your wardrobe would you pair this with?
This half lined, soft shoulder, tailored sports jacket can serve many purposes. I would pair this jacket with selvedge or distressed denim, or clean up the look with a pair of wingtips and a dress shirt.
