Cyrene Tailored Jacket
Cyrene is a beautifully fitted, tailored jacket which can be worn with the collar turned up (as on the image) or laying flat in a more traditional way and the lapels are created within the front and stand out by using distinctive stitch pattern. The body is knitted in one piece meaning there is so little to sew up.
