ballad coat


The ballad jacket is a longline piece with a simple, unstructured opening and two side inseam pockets. Its generous cropped sleeves have long cuffs which we like to fold back, keeping the silhouette unrestrictive and dynamic. At the back of the jacket, a crescent yoke with a pleat detail creates gently gathered volume for easy movement (and a contrast facing on the inside adds a detail you’ll enjoy each time you hang your jacket). 

Please refer to the measurements for a sense of the ballad’s length on your body. Prefer a more cropped profile? Try our sonnet jacket, or the even shorter haiku length – same fit, with a higher hem.

LJ struthers

LJ struthers clothing is informed by insistence on comfort, commitment to craftsmanship, and the joy of self-expression we can all experience through dress. Life and work in different regions of Japan inspired Leonie to translate some of the traditional principles of Japanese design for an Australian context. Timeless, sculptural silhouettes are ideal for layering, while disciplined lines and simple shapes invites creative collaboration with the wearer. Textiles of extraordinary quality are at the heart of the label, and every style is cut and constructed in Hobart with due care, creating garments to enjoy for years to come.
