Reversible clothing, which includes anything from shirts and dresses to jackets and even swimsuits, has a devoted following. Turning a reversible article of clothing inside out gives you two looks for the price of one! It's a fantastic method to stretch your dress even further. A reversible piece of clothing makes a lot of sense when it comes to saving baggage or closet space.
The collection of reversible jackets by Soot and Ty is an excellent example of this. Lightly quilted for warmth, these elegant yet casual Reversible Jackets are easy to take on as an extra layer.
The History of Reversible Clothing
It can't be said for sure who wore the first reversible jackets, but shepherds are mentioned in the Bible as wearing them. These coats were advertised as having a soft, warm side for cold days and a smooth side for warmer days.
It's also apparent that Asia was ahead of the rest of the globe in adopting reversible styles. Since at least the 17th century, the Obi, a broad sash around the midsection of a kimono, has been created double-sided. Fire-fighters in Japan wore a reversible jacket called a hikeshi banten throughout the nineteenth century. The ascent of the mandarin coat affected the advancement of what we currently know as reversible coats. It has a straight, erect collar with adjusted corners and is named for royal Chinese savvy people. During the mid-20th century, the ubiquity of the mandarin coat and the adaptability of the reversible dress was first blended, bringing about the reversible coat's style, which was taken on by numerous planners, including Soot and Ty.
Current Reversible Fashions
Reversible jackets and apparel have become more fashionable since we have evolved to expect more from our wardrobe, have travelled more, and are sometimes short on space. The reversible jackets are multi-faceted garments ideal for packing light and boosting your wardrobe's potential. Designers such as Armani, Givenchy, and Alexander McQueen have released their interpretations of this wardrobe staple, which comes as no surprise.
Crafting reversible jackets is significantly more complicated than making most clothing items: no seams must show on the opposite side, and no apparent labels must be present. Because the coats are made up of two layers that are sewed together, they are also thicker overall. These are cotton layers with wadding in between in our reversible jackets. Reversible jackets must have buttons or fastenings on both sides; thus, the fastening must be carefully studied. This will necessitate modifying the button placket. We used rouleau loop buttons, as well as a single reversible zipper inset. To cover the stitches, the sleeves are fixed and knotted on one side to conceal the garment's internal seaming. This binding can be utilised to hide all seam details; at Soot and Ty, we do this with contrast trim.
