I’ve owned a khaki jacket for years. In fact, I have two khaki jackets, which I wear every year when the weather cools down. I pull them out at the start of Autumn, I wear them through Winter and even through Spring.
Khaki jackets usually describe the casual, “parka” style coat. They look great with a variety of neutral colours (blacks, denims, grey, whites, navy, patterns) so you can throw them over most outfits and it looks pretty fab. They are great value.
Anyway at the end of last winter I tore a hole in one of my jackets, because I was walking too close to a wire fence! I probably could sew it back up (with a patch?) but I’m lazy and not that great with a needle and thread.
So this jacket (in the photo above) is my new replacement jacket from Jeanwest! It fits a whole lot better. It has a nicer “slimming” look, yet I can still wear a shirt + knit jumper underneath, without looking bulky, like an eskimo.
As I’ve said in the past, building a wardrobe with classic, key pieces is a whole lot of fun, especially when I see the results – that is, the ease in which I can put together a relatively stylish outfit and feel great!
