I quite like it when what at first blush seems like a random sartorial urge turns out to be a trend. Gives one so many options to choose from. Most recently, in my retirement dressing quest, I realized that I don’t wear much wool any more. Too hot. Too annoying to handwash or dry clean. Sweatshirts seem to work better, but they are so, so, sweatshirty.
So how about quilted? The extra structure appeals, sophisticates one’s look just a tad.
You’d have to watch the length. Cropped or long past hip – good. Indeterminate middle waist – bad. No need to channel a 13th century gambeson. For a few choices, I present a nifty little widget, using the RewardStyle, um, widget tool, and my exceptionally limited Photoshop skills.
Gratuitous and fatuous commentary, as always, is no one’s but my own. What say you, to quilting of casual vestments?
