Men's Samba Jacket
$ 160.00 USD
This is a typical men's samba jacket, made in Brazil with hand applied/glued acrylic crystals and rhinestones. There are 3 main sizes, Small, Medium and Large. Pair it with one of our sparkly men's samba shirt, vest and pants and you are ready to look like a ***"Malandro" sambista! Traditionally a Malandro will use a white jacket and a stripped red/white t-shirt and white men's samba shoes, however in a more sophisticated event or in a group a black, dark attire is required.
The crystals are not too much, but enough to look like a professional sambista. It's nicely scattered to have an elegant look.
This is traditional men's samba look!!
In Brazil a size SMALL would be size 38, a size MEDIUM 40-42, a size Large 46 and above. If you want to send us your measurements we can check against our jackets, but we do not custom make jackets. Our sizes are an average size.If you are not sure about sizes, please feel free to email us and we can always contact the designer and take your questions.
***Malandragem is a Portuguese term for a lifestyle of idleness, fast living and petty crime – traditionally celebrated in samba lyrics, especially those of Noel Rosa and Bezerra da Silva. The exponent of this lifestyle, the malandro (masculine adjective), or "bad boy" (rogue, hustler, rascal, scoundrel), has become significant to Brazilian national identity as a folk hero or, rather, an anti-hero. It is common in Brazilian literature, Brazilian cinema and Brazilian music.
