The jacket is exquisite; the cut, that wonderful collar, the sleeves. Don’t particularly care for the boots, they remind me a little of swashbuckling pirate boots, too much space between the calf and the top of the boot.
Is that a skirt or shorts that she’s wearing? The break in the line between the skirt/shorts hem and the top of her boots makes her look as though she’s wearing clothes one size too big for her. (Nice legs and coat, though.)
I adore the coat. It looks well made, and the cut’s unique. I love how the outfit’s colors remain low-key and she let’s the shapes do the talking – a slight flare here, streamlined along the legs then slouchy boots. Very chic.
sart, I’d love to see you take your show on the road – beyond the major style capitals. i’d love to see resort street style! country street style! how personal style can be manifested in places where that can be more challenging. – for those of us who aren’t living our lives in the big city.
No problem with the boots – worn with jeans or a shorter dress or skirt. It’s the shorts that are just killing me. Baggy in a way that looks stretched-out and poorly made, as opposed to deliberate. Poorly hemmed. The exact wrong length and shape.
I realize this post is about the coat – which is lovely. But those shorts!
Of course, I come to this as a person who thinks that shorts are a cruel joke played on the average american woman every summer, and I’m particularly pissed about seeing them pop up as a fall-spring concept, as we see here.
On mornings when I’m feeling crappy and tempted to put on a pair of black pants, an old sweater and beat-up ballet flats, I remind myself that the Sartorialist might be out shooting that day, and it’s better to look your best ;)
