A treasury of plaid jackets

11

 

As I mentioned last week, these are all over the place this season, and I for one could not be more pleased, because they’re so comfortable and easy and tomboy cool. My inclination is to wear them layered over a zipper hoodie—a shocker coming from me, I know—but they look great on their own too, like here (also: I know the jacket in this picture is pretty perfect, and I feel certain that at least one of you will ask where it comes from, but it’s a street style photo, and I honestly have no idea).

I like the oversize dimensions of this one, and the graphic black and white, and the perfectly-placed pockets. Here’s something similar but cheaper.

This has a fuzzy texture I dig, and I’m also a fan of its autumnal hues.

I like the nice, soft colors intermingled with the black on this one.

This pink plaid number isn’t left in many sizes, but it was so cute I had to include it anyway, and maybe you’ll get lucky.

The shots of orange here make this a bold (but not too bold) choice. I also think the single row of buttons is cool.

Here’s one that reminds me of pricier specimens by Isabel Marant.

The very subtle pattern here is completely appealing, and makes this a really versatile option.

This buffalo check shirt jacket is a great layer, and very well-priced.

True, this shearling-trimmed jacket isn’t cheap, but it is about as polished-looking as a plaid jacket gets.

How cute is this blue and cream jacket from Sezane? I really might have to go for it.

I’m a sucker for houndstooth, and love how it looks kind of off-register on this boucle jacket.

I like the peacoat details here.

I know that not all of you like a collarless jacket, but I think it’s a good, streamlined look, and I really like it here.

I like the small details on this Pendelton jacket, like the ribbed cuffs, and oversize patch pockets.

This peacoat is a fun alternative to the traditional navy one.

And finally: the detachable hood here is a nice touch.

    I am definitely not a fan of plaid, but as I skimmed thru your choices, I slammed on the brakes for that lovely lavendar and black Galatea number and, of course, Sezane with that great royal blue. So, a learning moment. Thanks for making me rethink choices.

    Kim! I got the pink one! I just moved, and was horrified at HOW MANY DAMN COATS I have (our actual bedroom closet is filled with coats alone, and we had to buy wardrobes for our other clothes, ah, NYC living), and I promised myself no more coats, but…you got me with this one! ARGH/YAY!

    I don’t know what your powers are but somehow you’ve read my mind…I have been craving a plaid jacket for weeks now! That Pendleton one is really calling my name…it has a bit of a vintage vibe that speaks to me. I LOVE all things Pendleton. The quality is unmatched. My dad had a Pendleton plaid shirt that he wore for 25 years.

    That subtle BB Dakota appeals to me.
    Loved the podcast yesterday. I always look forward to Tuesday podcasts.

    These are what I’ve been desiring these cool mornings when I take Betty out for her first (of many) potty breaks. I’ve also been hankering for a plaid flannel shirt. It’s definitely Fall.

      My hubby used to be a forest ranger for the state of Wisconsin, so he had a lot of outdoor friendly clothes – Pendleton wool shirts, Fisherman knit cable sweaters, etc.
      Provided that he didn’t throw them out (and that is highly unlikely) and they’re not moth-eaten, I may just have myself a wool jacket.

    The best plaid topper is worn like Rita. She got me started on this, with ankle boots, sans cigarette.

      Fun photo. If there were any youngsters here I’d hem and haw … but it would still be a fun photo.

    I saw that Sezane yesterday on iwanttobeher when Andrea posted the ecru version. I’m HIGHLY tempted by the ecru one too.
