Kids' Herringbone Sports Coat

Introducing the Maldwyn & Mab Kids’ Herringbone Sports Coat

Time is a luxury. The time spent sourcing the best materials, time spent perfecting a pattern, time spent hand stitching buttons and labels. High quality, beautifully made clothes take time, and are one of the greatest luxuries. The AW16/17 collection is small and luxurious, made to be loved by all kids. And exquisitely tailored.


It is attention to detail and skilled tailoring that makes our kids’ herringbone sports coat luxurious. The texture, the buttons the lining, these are what make the coat. We found the softest itch-free wool from the British Isles, which also happens to drape well and have a nice sheen. The mossy-green herringbone cloth takes the elegance up a notch, in our books.

We took our style cues for this kids’ herringbone sports coat from classic suiting. The fashion of the English countryside also inspired us with its tweed clothes used for centuries for outdoor pursuits. The coat is cut in a way that leaves room to grow, but is still fitted enough for a tidy appearance. It is single breasted with two large buttons, easy for little fingers to manipulate.

The wrist-length sleeves, made a touch shorter than the standard menswear sleeve, are perfect for kid-sized arms and won’t get in anyone’s way…but are easy to roll up if they do. They have a four button cuff, with small horn-style buttons that are a matte tortoiseshell brown. We love these buttons so much in fact that we’ve used them on all the clothes for the collection.

The two front pockets are large enough for kids’ to access easily. The pocket flaps, which are lined with a silky patterned acetate, ensure that the treasures inside stay put.

A sports coat has a slightly more relaxed fit that a blazer or suit jacket. It’s meant to be paired with unmatched trousers for a more casual outfit. Single-breast, softer shoulders, and a looser fit. We’ve used these classic details for our sports coat, which combined, create a coat especially comfortable for kids.


Our kids’ herringbone sports coat is sharp. It has a vintage-modern appeal that will never go out of fashion. It is a go-to coat to dress up jeans and sneaks or paired with chinos and brogues when a Sunday-best look is in order. So, by taking our time, by using the rich heritage fabric of herringbone wool, and keeping to an earthy palette, we came up with something cool and casual, but decidedly luxurious.
