Mossy Brown, size XXS
The coated canvas jacket that J. Crew offers every season has always mystified me. I never understood the love for this jacket. Maybe it just seemed too boyish or the pockets too military-style, but I'd never been drawn to this jacket like many fashion bloggers seem to be. On a whim, however, I decided to try it on. And I'm officially a convert.
First of all, the fit is fantastic. I'm in an XXS in the photos above. I think the tailoring gives it a feminine fit, yet there's still some room for layering underneath. I like the "mossy brown" color, which reads more as an olive green to me. I like the look of rolling up the sleeves to reveal the plaid detailing. It also helps the jacket to look more feminine in my opinion. The coated cotton wasn't too shiny and seems to make it an ideal jacket for spending time outdoors (which in my case simply means walking around the Town Center shopping). I like the gold hardware - a good contrast against the brown/olive color.
