For some time now, I’ve been on a quest. At times it seemed an impossible quest: a jacket, wearable for the office or dressed down with jeans, not just another menswear-style blazer, a good fit, preferably knit, and not black. Or at least, not entirely black.
This was one of those “almost missed it” finds. I’d seen a version of this jacket on a prominent rack in an olive drab color that didn’t appeal to me. But as I turned toward the escalator to leave, tugging at my peripheral vision was that zipper shoulder detail and navy color. The body is ponte knit, the sleeves are leather, and the whole thing is lined.
I’ve styled very simply here to highlight the minimalist design. The sleeves are just a wee bit long but as soon as I find an alterations person I trust, that will be remedied.
I think we’re going to be very happy together.
Are there any items for which you feel you’ve been on a seemingly impossible quest? Any great recent finds?
