One of my shopping secrets that I have been doing for years....but don't share often is shopping in the boy's department....You can find great classic style with much lower price tags. A good place to start is Brook's Brothers...a blazer and their outer wear. Great finds you will have for years.
As I was surfing the web for information regarding this little trick I came across this post on the Satorialist....this only confirms that this is Timeless Cool. The date of the post was September 2006.

At DKNY - Boys Brooks Brothers Jacket
I guessing that this is a Brooks Brothers sportcoat from the boys department.
I have seen a few young ladies do this before and it always looks great.
The proportion is spot on for this woman's body with just enough femme/masculine to be perfectly androgynous.
I think the Brooks Brothers boy's department is the last place for women to buy anything close to a Helmut Lang suit.
I am creative and enjoy being inspired by the unique, innovative and artistic side of every day living. Please join me on my journey as I continue to use the knowledge I have accumulated, the new designs and inspirations I find... to create Timeless Cool Style.
