Canton jacket fabric inspiration

Rev up your wardrobe with the Canton Moto Jacket! The newest pattern to join the Cashmerette lineup, the Canton is designed for curves with sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H, princess seams, back fisheye darts, and two-piece sleeves with a full bicep option—and of course, the classic biker-style details that make this a timeless piece for your wardrobe.

The Canton is designed for mid- to heavy-weight woven fabrics such as boiled wool, boucle, jacquard, denim, vinyl, or leather. Low-stretch woven fabrics will also work. For the lining, you’ll want to use a lightweight woven fabric such as rayon Bemberg or crepe de chine.

Sophisticated solids and neutrals

Give your Canton an edge with faux leather and you don’t even have to stick with black. Try a navy, white or wine hue and you’ll be turning heads.

Elevated prints

Charming florals

A fun floral print could offer a beautiful and interesting juxtaposition to your moto jacket. Choose a feminine tweed coating or a floral jacquard for a stunning and surprising take on the Canton.

Take it up a notch with texture

Texture can go a long way when it comes to creating a one-of-a-kind statement piece. Why not try a tweed, faux fur, or basketweave? Add a pop of pizzazz to your wardrobe with a fun texture especially when combined with a pop of color.

Get creative with lining
