Thank you to Joseph at Suspension Point
. Great to deal with as always, more than generous with his time to share and help, and shipping was excellent (very quick).
Multi-pocket jacket arrived and I am ecstatic...I am hoping to get a lot of wears (I can see this working well for all 4 seasons in California).
I love the proportions from the side profile (size TTS if you are considering, which I don't see why you wouldn't!?)...all the pockets are great, and placed appropriately. I have always wanted a multi-pocket type jacket for the functionality and this provides that and more with the tailoring and cut suited for me.
From the back shoulder panel to the pleated cuffs, it maintains an elegant aesthetic. Not to mention the silhouette, which is killer.
The front placket also drapes beautifully when worn open, just how you'd imagine a grand shawl collar would. And when zipped up, one side of the lapel drapes across your shoulder like how you'd wish it was in real-life when viewing a look book of your favorite designers collection, except it is real with Lemaire's work! More so, with my specific wardrobe I can see how this can be worn in a sophisticated manner with what I wear to work if I am feeling more adventurous (you were right, Joseph!).
This item was probably the one thing I looked forward the most after seeing everything pass by during spring-summer 2014 and to get my hands on it makes up for all the upsets earlier this season
Now looking forward to FW14. Not sure what to expect since I already have three outerwear pieces...maybe a blazer
