Since we’re in the throngs of fall and ‘heavy jacket weather’ is looming, I decided to break out a piece I’ve been obsessed with: this mixed-material goddess from Mackage. I loved the navy peacoat base but it was the chocolate leather sleeves that sealed the deal for me, because honestly – who doesn’t love chocolate leather? It’s the perfect hybrid of classic Britannia and prohibition-worthy sex appeal.
I really enjoy a piece that allows a little re-invention. Pop the collar and cuff the sleeve for a much more casual approach to old-school classicism or simply toss it on to add a heavy dose of boarding school texture. Either way you choose to wear it, it’s going to keep you warm and that is honestly the most important factor in any jacket. This Mackage varsity piece just makes sure you look insanely good doing it.
