Editor Obsessions: Barbour Bedale Jacket

-------

barbour-sizedEvery day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

A good thing about being tall is wearing men’s clothes. I own and dearly love a lot of men’s shirts and T-shirts because they fit me better than a lot of women’s clothes. (I prefer a relaxed fit—something not too short.)

I’ve been lusting after this Barbour waxed jacket for a while now. When I was a teenager, my father bought my sister one, and I scoffed at it, even though he said it was a timeless piece. Now I’m wishing I had listened to him. Had I bought one back then, it would have just the right amount of wear now.

Le Styliste, C’est Chic, a Gilt-y Pleasure, and More…

You’re young, you’re French, you’re an in-demand stylist—what else would you do but design a covetable line or capsule collection? Women’s Wear Daily profiles the filles (including L’Officiel jewelry editor Emily Minchella, pictured at left with partner Caroline Baltz Nielsen, of Leetha) who’ve found time to multitask and add jewelry, cashmere, apparel, and intimates to their résumés. Us, we’re just trying to find time to pick up the dry-cleaning. [WWD]

City Mouse, meet Country Mouse. London designer Anya Hindmarch will be designing four jackets for Britain’s heritage Barbour brand, available this fall. [Vogue U.K.]

U.S. girls, meanwhile, should set their clocks now. Alex Wang’s covetable accessories hit Gilt Groupe at noon today for a rare sale. Boss, we’re feeling an 11:50 a.m. “meeting” coming on… [Racked]

English beauty retailer Superdrug commissioned a poll to find the “Beauty Icon of the Decade,” and the results are in: It’s Angelina Jolie. Team Aniston, you’ve lost this round—but Jen did come in second place. (We’ve got a few suggestions of our own, too…) [NYDN]

Recessionista: Earnest Sewn’s Nifty, Thrifty Goods

-------

What: Earnest Sewn’s new “Recession-Proof” store, opening today, with downtown-chic finds like Dents gloves, Barbour hats, leather-covered Moleskine notebooks, Digby & Iona jewelry, and the label’s own gingham scarves (like the one pictured here, a great buy at $38), also available in black, red, and green—all for less than $50.

Why: Because our favorite denim label likes to share the retail love. (To wit, those Dents gloves usually sell for over $90, but you didn’t hear it from us.)

Where: An Earnest Cut & Sew, 821 Washington Street, (212) 242-3414.
