Thanks to Mister Mort

I have been whining about the two twill jackets I purchased over the winter. Finally, I got the colors right, but they looked sloppy. There is enough blame to go around on this score, I ripped the shoulder pads out, I iron poorly, I'm too....

Life is way too short to beat yourself up over something like this, so while contemplating salting my wounds Mister Mort came to my rescue. Around the time I asked Mort for permission to run the header photo, he ran the photos shown here, taken while in Italy for SS 12 Fashion Week in his blog. Finally, I got it.

To my untrained eye they are the bottom 2 are same jacket, only different. The pocket detail gives them away.

I love how they are rumpled and how relaxed they look. I found that by throwing my jackets in the dryer with a damp towel they softened and rumpled magnificently. Scalpel a few extra inches off myself, stand up straight and all will be perfect. It's just not often I need a jacket when it's 95 (35C) degrees.
