an object, weekly.

10FW05Bi’ve had this little guy bookmarked for several weeks now. and today, with rain running in rivulets down the lane next to my house, i wish i had made the plunge to buy it. it’s not waterproof per se, but something about the hood and flannel lining makes me think it’d keep the worst of it off me.

more than making classic duds, portland company burn and bridge seems to be exactly my kind of place: dedicated to making “high quality garments with modern sensibilities.” amen. 

now i just need to find out if their lovely goods will fit my small frame. i’ve bought and returned two jackets this fall, both of them big enough to fit all of me and half again. harumph.

hope it’s drier where you are today. splash in puddles, if no.

    I bought a knee length bright yellow raincoat for less than 70 dollars from LL Bean. It is not the most stylish, but it means that when I wear rainboots and the jacket there are only about 4 inches of me that can get wet. Also, I love the bright yellow, it is a safety feature really. No way to get swept out to sea in that coat. On the other hand, the jacket I got is also way too big for me, but since I plan on wearing it over my knee length down jacket, I think the extra room will come in handy later this winter.

    Nothing like a good rain coat to keep you dry! I"m also fond of the bright yellow traditional coats for fun!

    Thanks for the post!

    We have a jacket called the Linda, which is very similar to this style, but made of British Millerain waxed cotton and works great as a rain jacket. The Fall is version comes in black and is flannel lined. It should be up on the site in the next couple of weeks.
