If I may add my 2 cents:

IMO a Safari Jacket is to be worn in hot weather conditions. Period!
To me it does not make sense to make a winter version of it.

It's no longer a safari jacket if it's not for hot weather. However, there's plenty of history behind a military-style utility jacket for cold weather. A hip-length jacket with four patch pockets on the front was never limited to hot-weather use.

Fantastic review Matt! I absolutely love how you dressed it up and down, as I was wondering how best to wear it, and you gave perfect examples that just look amazing!  ajb007/martini

Thanks! I'm so glad my review was of help to you. As I mentioned in the review, it could be dressed down even more with jeans and a t-shirt, though that's not my personal style so I didn't demonstrate it. It's quite a versatile jacket, though I find it has a limited temperature range based on it being lightweight but not that breathable.

I haven't fully read it yet as I was in a rush but from the pictures I remember that you put together some great outfits.
The pink shirt and black tie combo works better for this outfit than it ever did for the linen suit that Lazenby wore.
A white v-neck and some jeans would work great as an outfit with the safari jacket as mentioned above.
Lighter coloured chinos could also work.
Am I wrong or does it have a slight camp collar?

The tie with the pink shirt is navy knitted silk, though the jacket is light-coloured enough that a black tie could probably go with it as well. In both outfits, the trousers I'm wearing a stone chinos, but lots of different colours of trousers can go with it.

I don't think I'd call the collar a "camp collar" since it's not on a shirt and there is a button at the top of the front. On jackets, a one-piece collar is more often called a "Prussian collar".

Definately. DZ wore it with jeans in his vlog and it worked great. I totally agree with the temperature thing. It being made of synthetic materials, it seems more well suited for Spring and Fall, rather than summer, especially here in Florida where I'm at (I could probably use it in the winter). Looks like it's similar to a Baracutta in terms of use and weight. I really do love how you coupled it with the shirt and tie; it reminds me of the TMWTGG cream safari leisure jacket outfit. So cool, I can't wait to grab one. They only have my size left, but the TF Harrington has killed my Bond clothing fund for the year  ajb007/lol all the best  ajb007/martini

Re: The Return of the Safari Jacket

Matt, just read your article over coffee.  LOVE it.  You have a crisp and concise way of writing but obviously concur on all your comments.  The fit on these are particularly flattering.  Great pictures, btw and obviously a great backdrop.  I had more of a sticky, humid suburban jungle-like atmosphere but I liked the city-scape you provided.  I assume you went to see David and Elliott personally?

Thanks! Yes, I saw them in London personally, though I unfortunately wasn't able to get photos in the safari jacket in Montagu Square.
