Do you have items in your closet you never wear but that you refuse to get rid of? I have several, including a Helmut Lang pea coat—from when Helmut Lang designed Helmut Lang, bought for 60% off at his always-intimidating Soho boutique’s end-of-season sale. I wore it nearly to death—Its lining long ago shredded—and I keep thinking I’ll get it refurbished, because the silhouette is so good. Or maybe I’ll just start over, like maybe this one, from Lacoste, which has handy side slit pockets and a really nice shape.
I think this is just really sharp and menswear-ish looking.
A longer option, from Uniqlo’s ongoing collab with Jil Sander.
This quilted jacket looks like it could be Barbour to me, but it rings in a decent amount cheaper.
The silhouette here is so chic, and I dig the grey.
This is from Stella McCartney and still pricey even on sale, but I love the pocket details and the crop.
The leather buttons here are a nice, authentic touch.
This camel number from L.L. Bean would be aces with a black turtleneck sweater and trousers.
And finally, I like the oversized fit here.
