comptoir des really nice jackets

That's what I think they should really call themselves.  Comptoir des Cotonniers does a lot of stuff really well, but I think what they excel at is outerwear.  It's always elegant and classic and understated, but it just sneaks up on me and quietly rocks my world every season.  I will admit that I have two trench coats from them.  Yes, two.  But I swear, they have very different personalities.  As if I need to justify it.  Really though, one day I'll post photos so you can see.

Meanwhile, they're killing me with their spring blazers. 

Today I stopped in and touched them. They're impeccable.  And that grey and black one is especially stunning in person.  The body is a lightweight almost drapey wool with a slight sheen to it, and the black accents are done with a heavier wool that anchors it beautifully.  Maybe this week I'll actually slip them on.  I just worry that the temptation might be too much for me.

While I'm at it I should check out that hat too.  Just saying.


  1. which one would you get, dragon?

  2. Do it! Sometimes you gotta give in to the temptation:-) And, you'll look fabulous! xoxo

  3. I've been looking for a great but simple jacket... Maybe I'll check them out.


Say what?
