It was our second day in London. We were in Harvey Nichols, where I’d been perusing the shoe department, and le monsieur had gone on ahead to the Food Hall. I was on my way to catch up to him, when I spotted this jacket on a mannequin by the escalator.
It was, as they say, un coup de foudre.
I’ve actually been searching for a lightweight utility/field style jacket for some time now. But all the styles I tried either had pockets on the chest or were a bit too casual or bulky. This Sandro jacket fit beautifully, and even le monsieur really liked it when I tried it on to show him. I told the Sales Associate that I’d think it over and started to walk away, but turned on my heels and bought it on the spot.
I wore it almost every day after that. It was perfect for the cool, breezy and intermittently rainy weather we had for the duration of our days in London when layered over a sweater. But this is also an ideal jacket for our climate here in LA, so I have no fear that it will languish in the closet.
|Love this shoulder detail!|
The hardware is a gorgeous and unusual copper color. It’s beautifully made and fits like a dream. There’s a zip out hood in the collar, which came in handy a couple of times in London.
