The Riding Jacket

Dior Homme sunglasses, Black Fleece by Thom Browne riding jacket and trousers, Kenneth Cole NY men's nylon shirt, 9w shoes
This jacket sold out on me last year, so I didn't hesitate this time around when Black Fleece brought it back! My tailor did a beautiful job finishing the cuffs. Riding jackets remind of Tippi Hedren in Alfred Hitchcock's Marnie:

  3. this would look amazing on Stacey!

  4. I love riding jackets. For some reason riding jackets remind me of George Sand who took to wearing men's clothes long before Chanel. When I was young she was a source of fascination for me and she was often potrayed wearing a riding jacket.

  5. I saw the front and thought, nicely cut blazer...but then, ahh , the back! It's amazing! Lauren

  6. The buttons running down the back - beautiful.

  7. What a gorgeous jacket! I especially love the buttons on the back!

  8. love the Hitchcock reference you made. .and the pairing with a men's shirt. this jacket is a work of art

  9. too good. i love a riding jacket, it's elegant in a sporty, purposeful way.

  10. perfect. note to self: find better tailor. gorgeous fit and a wonderful, classic cut. i like that it looks kind of like my long firma jacket. :)

  11. Love it.
    A very flattering look. The trousers are classic.

  12. Great tailored outfit. Love the pop of color with those blue suede shoes. xo style, she wrote

  13. the fact that you use references in your posts makes your outfit choices even more interesting and contextual to the reader.
    the jacket's back view is a nice surprise.
    your background really makes the dark outfit stand out. (and it looks like one of my kitchen re-dos!)

  14. Very nice reference there! Marnie is one of my favourite Hitchcock films but Psycho will always be on top.

    I also loved Sean Connery in Marnie. Maybe I should look up to an outfit post inspired by his role in Marnie. haha
