The Article

"College roommates Bradley Rhyne and Filipe Ho, founders of the Charlotte-based menswear line Ole Mason Jar, grew up with firsthand knowledge of the economic void left across their home of North Carolina when the bulk of the textile business fled overseas. That acute awareness is the reason the majority of Ole Mason Jar’s button-downs, suits, jackets, and ties are made in-state by second- and third-generation sewers.

“Being able to walk through the places where our products are being sewn means that every season our line gets better and better,” Ho says. They’ve hit on a sweet spot with their modern sport coat. Tailored somewhere between a trendy trim fit and a traditional full cut, the lightweight unstructured jacket (no shoulder pads here) flatters most body types, and the multi-blue plaid is made of a sumptuously soft Italian wool. “We wanted versatility and comfort,” Rhyne says, “and an extra attention to the subtle details—something you won’t find at J.Crew.” Slip on this new classic with jeans, chinos, or slacks and keep it in the year-round rotation."
