Wilhelm Knit Sport Coat

Light Gray
A step into the sartorial “surf”; johnnie-O’s printed knit sport coats combine the old world classic look of a finely tailored European garment with the technology and comfort of a blended performance knit. We have worked the world over to find the perfect weight base cloth to print some of the most beautiful patterns to create a jacket that not only looks great BUT feels incredible. With stretchability that allows full range of motion, our jacket feels more like your favorite pullover than a piece of tailored clothing.  We removed the traditional lining in favor of a “butterfly” lining to keep the weight at a minimum and comfort a maximum. Soft touch elevated buttons, felt under collar, and the signature johnnie-O “recipe for happiness” label inside compliment the package.

These are true unstructured sport coats. They’re made with soft shoulders, butterfly linings—which are to make getting them on and off even easier with as little added fabric as possible and thoughtful touches like the barchetta pocket at the chest for a touch of traditional Italian class.


Unlike the fabric used to make your special occasion sport coat, this fabric is knit which makes it more comfortable, easier to care for and has added stretch for a better range of motion when hailing a cab or getting the bartender’s attention.


We think of these sportcoats as the casually cool alternative to the lightweight jackets in your closet. Throw them on with a pair of shorts and a polo or pair up with your jeans for the weekend.
