Military Jackets

We had a cold snap this weekend, and I took advantage of the occasion to break out my velvet frock coat. It's stylish like it's 1865. Truth is, I have a weakness for big, important-looking buttons and braiding. I also love absconding with men's pomp and circumstance. Since two of our readers have already sent me pictures of the military jackets they've bought or are tempted to buy this fall, I thought you might appreciate a roll call of what in stores.Top: teal velvet jacket, Newport News $29

Love all of these. They also remind me of MJ, which is a plus!

I saw one in the window at H&M the other day and I was feeling tempted... though I really like that teal velvet one.

I love military jackets! I have an olive colored twill one that I bought over 4 years ago and I still love it!

Such a fun look with jeans! In the magazine "Altered Couture" there's a project to make one of these :)
