Blazer with shawl collar in polyester/cotton fabric with silk-screened decoration.

The 1985 beer jacket is the first in the collection to cover most of the surface of the jacket with a design. Also, unlike previous jackets, it is tailored like a suit jacket rather than workwear. Breaking another tradition, the jacket depicts not one but three tigers—two on the front and one on the back. The design was quite controversial within the class.
