Wanted: New Fleet Jacket

Wanted: New Fleet Jacket on vickiarcher.com

Fleet jacket, army jacket, Field Jacket, camouflage jacket; whatever the name, I need a new one.

If there is one piece in my wardrobe to justify my, “cost per wear’ philosophy it is this one.

I wear this style of jacket in a series of weights over just about everything. This season I have seen the embroidery trend take the lead over the brass buttons and the more simple camouflage style; I still like the military feel of an oversized button and equally I find the simple version extremely wearable.

The model above has styled hers with a dress and sneakers, a heavier look than I am after for now but the principle works. I can see the lighter fleet jacket working perfectly with my latest crush on the shirtdress.

I found one in particular, on sale which I think is a perfect addition to the wardrobe if you don’t have one already. If you prefer a more embellished and adventurous option, this one is a keeper.

Fleet Jackets are one of the ageless win / win staples for our wardrobes.

If you are uneasy about wearing leather then this coat is the perfect substitute; leather is always a winner in my eyes but I know not everybody feels comfortable cloaked in the biker style.

This nipped in shape particularly flatters a rounded figure and of course a slim hipped body will look fabulous.

One jacket I will never be without is this one. Yes, definitely wanted. xv

Sadly, I already own 2. And seriously, I have no reason to get another. Never mind that they 1. always look fabulous. 2. go with absolutely everything. 3. are in a color that looks great on me, and actually looks great on everyone! ugh. You might get me into trouble, Vicki.

ps. don’t feel guilty about the puppy love. Before you blink twice, they are so big. They’re only babies for such a short short time.


The Fleet Jacket – I had one a long time ago, in khaki and loved it .. wore it until it was just a rag lol
I would get another in a minute, they work with everything

Lovely, Vicki. You are giving me food for thought about my wardrobe for next school year, as this school year comes to an end and I’m cleaning out my closet!

I can well imagine how irresistible Marloe is. May we see a photograph of him?
Is your dog (pictured here in your St. Rémy garden a while back) still living here on earth?


Yes Apache is doing very well and king of the universe here ;)
All 100kg of him!
