This is a Bedford Jacket. It’s made by Engineered Garments, which is a brand I love – and a menswear brand, all the better. I have a winter coat by them, altered to fit my lady torso, and it’s the best coat ever. So what I want now, since what we have is never good enough (and really, the coat is getting a bit worn at the cuffs…), is a version of this Bedford jacket in a heavy wool flannel (and a nice dark navy, if you please).
Sadly, I haven’t been able to find it anywhere – only hints that it exists this season. I’ve seen it in navy cotton canvas, and in navy wool serge, but not in the flannel. This is where having some kind of jacket agent in New York would be helpful, I expect. Jacket agents! Why isn’t that a real thing?
Also, while I’m free and easy with the unreasonable demands, I’d like some bright yellow gentlemen shoes. For my Urban-Dandy-Tom-Bombadil cosplay project, you understand.
