My latest obsession is texture blocking. First, it was all about the bags (what’s new?), then after seeing Mad Men’s Jessica Pare in a quilted Holmes & Yang leather bomber with elbow patch detailing, I decided to take it to jackets as well. Which is your favorite?
Isabel Marant Étoile Cypress Leather Sleeve Bomber Jacket: Make the A team with a little help from the queen of Parisian chic as she ventures into Friday Night Lights. On Matches Fashion for $1,100.
T by Alexander Wang Leather-Sleeved Cotton-Blend Bomber Jacket: A classic style modernized to perfection. The contrast of leather and cotton-blend twill keeps you from entering full-blown biker territory. On NET-A-PORTER for $680.
Jonathan Simkai Tran Bouclé-Tweed, Denim, and Leather Jacket: This is the most extreme of the texture blocked jackets. A hybrid letterman/jean/leather that allows you to indulge in all of your style impulses at once! On NET-A-PORTER for $695.
