    The buttons are a tan brown, so they contrast nicely with the navy blue. It set me back a good 200 quid.
    I got a ton of compliments on the jacket and I am actually less upset summer is ending when I think I'll be wearing my jacket soon.
    The only thing is: it's hard to dress up. Not as versatile as a pea coat, but way more original at the moment.

    I was actually looking at the Counter Jacket from Bleu. Gorgeous jacket for winter, available on End for like 220.

    Only thing is, I am tiny and I doubt they would do a 36" chest version.

    Universal Works | Universal Works Crofter Jacket at ASOS

    That jacket is sublime. Is there any still left on ASOS?

    I often need a small (especially for shirts), but mostly need a medium for sweaters and jackets. This bleu de paname jacket is a very small size. I own a medium which is a snug fit.The small was waaay to small for me, so you may be in luck.
    I must ad they're a small brand and the finish on the jacket wasn't perfect and their sizing isn't very consistent.

    Looks like the universal works jacket has sold out

    About 5.9 feet tall and 38 inch chest.
    I bought the jacket last year, so maybe they changed their sizes.
    I remember trying on a BDP jumper in a size medium and it hung like a sack of potatoes, while the jacket is medium and is snug. Which is weird.

    Pin Money: agreed. The new coats and leather jackets from AllSaints are golden. I want each and every single of them.

    Received the Kooples Lookbook over the weekend and noticed this (I think it’s beautiful):

    Gorgeous, both of them.
