A very versatile black wool jacket by Mrs Prada, which retains a minimalist vibe despite its many zips and bits. There's a zipper to close it underneath the six buttons you see here, and two more to secure the front pockets. The belt is separate, and there are further minibelts on the cuffs. There are epaulettes. The collar can be turned back into revers as here, or buttoned all the way up into a funnel neck. The left hand pocket has come detached on one side (an easy fix), and there's a bit of pilling INside on the right, invisible when worn. The 100% virgin wool is a nice soft twill, it's only partially lined, and it's made in Italy. Size 42.
Measurements: Length 26", chest 38", Shoulder 17", Sleeve 24"
STORY: I over-wore this one year and can no longer look it in the eye.
