Tailoring Semi construction

Semi construction is a tailoring method typically used for blazers or coats with a more relaxed yet still polished silhouette. It is characterised by partial lining on the front of the jacket, sleeves and back shoulder, as well as half-canvas construction – which provides layered support and structure to define the shoulder and chest.

Tailoring Semi construction

Semi construction is a tailoring method typically used for blazers or coats with a more relaxed yet still polished silhouette. It is characterised by partial lining on the front of the jacket, sleeves and back shoulder, as well as half-canvas construction – which provides layered support and structure to define the shoulder and chest.

The half canvas gives semi-constructed jackets their elegant drape. It uses fusing – a thin layer of fabric attached to the back of the jacket material – along the front panel to give it more body. And it has a piece on the shoulder and chest made up of four or five layers of natural materials like canvas and wool – instead of foam. Sitting between the outer fabric and the inside lining, it creates the round shape at the top of the sleeve head and supports the shape of the shoulder.

Combined with binded seams – a sign of quality and craftsmanship – semi-constructed pieces are favourites all year round, but particularly in summer because they are lighter in weight.
