I may have, in my possession, the perfect fall/winter coat. If the cut, color, and perfect woven leather buttons were not enough on their own, the plaid wool lining sealed the deal. I will always love Brooks Brothers and its unabashedly-stuffy perfect preppiness, but vintage Brooks Brothers reigns supreme.

Yay for Americana awesomeness. I ADORE that jacket, and it looks like it's in perfect condition. This outfit just screams smooth 70s, in the best possible way. :)

Great jacket! I love when things have cool linings- even if other people can't see them, you know that they're awesome.

That coat is the find of the century. Love!

Christina said...

Lady this is perfection! You are so lucky to have indeed found the most wonderful fall coat ever! I have been rummaging through the coat racks at thrift stores to find something similar to no avail. I think it has something to do with the city one lives in. Is it strange to say that I would rather look at thrift stores in major cities than their fancy department stores?

Elizabeth Edith said...

I love everything about all this!! Everything, literally.

Miranda said...

I love the sweater vest ... amazing, I need one immediately.
Great look as always.
