Photos: Life of the Jetsetter
So I know we’re nearing summer and all, but up in the Northern Hemisphere, fall has just arrived. That means jackets. Lots of jackets. Glorious jackets. The best of the bunch is the duffel coat. Seen on many a runway this past January, the duffel coat hails from a town named Duffle in Belgium. Back in the Middle Ages, Duffle exported a sturdy cloth to England to be made into workwear for peasants. Fast forward a few centuries, and the British Navy adopted the jacket for its durability and ease of fastening. (Knowledge gleaned from reading Mr Classic – you should too.) I’m obsessed. Now it’s just a matter of finding one that looks as good as Gucci – but for a more palatable price. Off to the opshops we go. The photo above is part of an editorial from Popeye magazine. It’s fly. Check the rest below.
I LIKE YOU!
