The look

The exact pattern works great in the wild, so I picked this herringbone check sport jacket to accompany me to a ride in the nature with this gorgeous vintage 1979 BMW RS100 bike. Made of wool and cashmere, this jacket feels warm and comfortable. Extra feature: The brown elbow patches that give further plainness to my outfit.

Layering is a smart option when it comes to wearing a casual jacket, therefore I combined it with a 100% pure wool tan vest.  I finished off my smart casual outfit with burgundy casual trousers, a pair of brown lace up boots and a green woolen tie.
