A Sartorial Steal: Agnes B Gray Blazer in Houndstooth

Agnes B Gray Blazer in Houndstooth

I’m not sure which grabbed me first, the “ooh so chic” purple silk jacket lining or the gray houndstooth check. The checks originated in woven wool from Scotland and today, though having found itself in more modern textiles is “back” in this wool blazer from Agnes B. From a distance, it’s similar to glen plaid (aka Prince of Wales check) and the combination of royal purple on gray makes this gray suit jacket with 2 button closure and 4 button long sleeves mighty luxurious.

Straight cut, the purple lining is provides sophisticated contrast; one can only pray the sleeves come with working buttons for you to show off some flair when the mood strikes. This Agnes B production is a sartorial steal at 50% off. Get it here at galerieslafayette.com
