Your Thoughts? Club Monaco Max Blazer
20/10/2010 § Leave a comment
Even though camel is very hot this season, camel is a staple color that I group along with navy and gray as one of my favorite fashion workhorses. Lately I have been on the hunt for a camel jacket, blazer or coat that would be a classic addition to my wardrobe. I think I may have found it this Sunday afternoon while wandering around Soho.
The Club Monaco Max Blazer hits the high points on my wishlist. I had been considering a few coats, but what I really wanted was a jacket or blazer to get me through autumn. It’s a wool blend and is fully lined, which will give it a bit of extra warmth that hopefully extends the amount of time it can be worn. The pricetag doesn’t break the bank, either.
But I do have my doubts. While camel with be around long after the “trend” has died out, this is definitely a boyfriend blazer and this trend does swing in and out (you will recall it was previously favored by Lisa Turtle at Bayside High). While the coat has a generally classic lines – I like that it’s not double breasted or gussied up with “fun” details – it is over-sized, a bit boxy and has pretty strong shoulders.
On balance, I’m definitely leaning toward making the move and bringing this find home. Someone needs to make me a bigger coat closet!
