In my post from about a week ago, I said that my favourite winter jacket is the Parka jacket. And even though that is still pretty much the case, I have to admit that there is one winter jacket in my wardrobe that is quite special to me.
I am talking about my navy blue faux fur Harrington jacket. Besides feeling like a pimp when wearing it, it is super comfortable, keeps me warm and looks somewhat fashionable.
I know fur jackets are still quite sparsely found in menswear in high street fashion retail. For some reason, we all have preconceptions that some pieces of clothing or fabrics are solely targeted at either women or men. And so, when I am wearing my fur jacket I am pretty much guaranteed to have all eyes on me when I walk down the high street. A man in a fur jacket is still something quite unusual.
The fur jacket I am wearing today is actually fromlast year and was bought in Topman. I remember it selling out within one week.
I usually like to keep my outfit quite casual because the jacket is already such a statement in itself. Today I wore cropped grey wool blend trousers, a white boxy t-shirt, a blue flannel around my waist and my Adidas Superstar. Very casual and comfortable 🙂
