Take a look at one of my favorite designer’s vintage sports coat…
Most of you already know that almost half of my wardrobe consist of vintage clothing that I’ve collected over the past 10 years. I feel that there’s an art to vintage shopping and everyone is not cut out for it because it takes a certain type of eye to visualize wearing these old pieces. The clothes usually find me in a way, but I typically look for color, patterns, and unique prints on very usual pieces of clothing.

Today I’m rocking my vintage Ralph Lauren sports coat that I found about 4 years ago when I first moved to LA. He’s one of my favorite designers and orange is my favorite color. The design of the jacket is exorbitante and I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on. This vintage jacket is 3 button with a wide 4 inch lapel. It also has 2 button down breast pockets and 2 more below at the bottom. I get a dope military vibe when I wear this jacket because of all of the pockets and overall design, but the coolest detail is when I flip up the lapel/collar then button it up at the neck.
My brown leather boots added to the military vibe I felt and it coordinated with the camo button up shirt. These boots have became my personal fall/winter favorite so far and they elevate almost every outfit I wear with them.
