Unlined for fall and winter

When you think of an unlined, minimally structured blazer, you probably picture a cotton, linen or tropical wool summer coat designed to allow maximum ventilation and minimal heat retention. But fall and winter unlined jackets are made as well, typically in wools and cashmeres, to suit slightly different purposes. Temperature control is still an asset, albeit in this case primarily to avoid overheating when worn with multiple layers, but the reduced structure also simply makes the garment more comfortable—in the absence of layers of canvassing or shoulder pads it feels more like wearing a cardigan than a coat.
