Also here, I wanted to wear this Austin Reed coat more for daytime instead of saving it for evenings. I have to say I feel a bit like Dr Who – Tom Baker style – with the scarf worn long like this! Gap Men cotton jumper, Gap 1969 selvedge jeans, L’Autre Chose black ankle boots and Kelly 32cm 1977 in navy box leather. I really like how the longer length helps to balance the size of the Kelly against my frame also here and here.I often thought of passing the coat on since I wore it rarely but very glad I hung on to it! Sometimes, even with the best wish and intention in the world, items we cling onto for years will still never work and I daresay the 2 determining factors in this case are quality and fit. Moreover, I can see myself compromising on quality as I get older but not on fit.
Thanks for reading!
