My husband looks at this jacket and sees Star Trek, which he assures me is a good thing. I, however, see Tin Man, which is also a good thing because the Tin Man is (in my opinion) the best character from the Wizard of Oz. We welcome a third vote to break the tie, so you tell me.
The fabric is “laminated cotton” which is just different enough to garner a second look, no? To moderate the futuristic look, I paired the jacket with an old-fashioned blouse — high necked and fully buttoned — made of very lightweight silk. The silk is, in fact, so lightweight that it’s on the verge of tattered and I’ve only worn it a dozen times.
Here is the jacket up-close:
A black bag could easily complete the look, but red is a little more fun.
I compliment Coach on the Borough Bag 2.0. Clearly someone looked at the original Borough bag — which is also beautiful — and came up with some small but valuable improvements: fewer compartments, feet on the bottom and turnlock closures. And, I’d like to thank Coach for putting identical hardware on the back and the front so that consumers like me, who don’t like brand names appearing on their clothes and accessories, aren’t forced to bear a logo.
Live long and prosper!
