Once, I had a cognac leather moto and it fit me really strangely. Since I’d spent some bucks on it, I kept it for several years before finally accepting that the long arms and odd shoulders were always going to bug me, and that tailoring was going to be costly and risky. So I put it on consignment. And then this fall happened and about a dozen outfits came to mind that would’ve looked perfect with a cognac leather jacket, so I began the search for a replacement. But it took me until very recently to find and nab this one on eBay. It’s from Victoria’s Secret originally (who knew?) and is just the color I wanted – that surprisingly hard to find ruddy reddy brown. Also love that it’s somewhere between a blazer and a jacket, so ideal for indoor wintry wear. Jackpot. read more
