Motto opened a store in my town this week and I just happened to find myself there on their first day. The staff were delightful, and the range just stunning. While I certainly appreciate their patterned garments, it was the solids, and particularly the coats and jackets that captivated me.
This jacket in particular won my heart! It is a double coated jersey that creates a finish that could be mistaken for leather. The fabric has stretch, the fit is perfect and the jacket is beyond comfortable and surprisingly warm for our cold winter. I expect this jacket will translate extremely well into Spring when worn with lighter layers underneath.
A jacket like this has been on my 'wish' list for a long time. It's reminiscent of Rick Owens' brilliant styling and reflective of his aesthetic which I identify strongly with, albeit in my own way. So for me, this is "The" jacket. Two faux leather jackets have since departed my closet as they now fade into insignificance compared to this one.
How about you? Is there an item in your wardrobe that is "THE" one.
