Letterman Jackets have been flicking in and out of my radar for the last couple of years. I’d really like one but I’m very particular. Most Letterman jackets that I love are out of out of my budget so it figures I’m absolutely in love with the Thom Browne version. I really should have bought a Letterman jacket when I was in University but I’ve never really wanted to be a walking billboard for my alma mater. I’d happily subject myself to being a Thom Browne billboard any day.

The Thom Browne Letterman Jacket is made from a cashmere boucle. I’m drooling as I’m typing this. This jacket is very traditional with the leather sleeves but steps up the style quotient with the cashmere body. The lining of the jacket is silk. The Letterman Jacket In Cashmere Boucle by Thom Browne is from the Pre Fall 2014 collection and is available for pre-order on Moda Operandi. It will cost you a whopping $4,700, a $2,350 deposit. The Thom Browne women’s collection is available at The Room, The Hudson’s Bay in Toronto.

Thom Browne is one of my dream designers. He’s not for everyone and a lot of his designs are considered just weird to people. Thom Browne is a fashion week favourite of mine as his shows are always thought-provoking, unconventional and damn entertaining. I dream of owning his collections (both namesake and Moncler Gamma Bleu) season after season but I might be able to pull of a random sale purchase at Last Call like my Jil Sander blazer. His stuff is crazy expensive. I’m such a nerd about Thom Browne that my heart fluttered when I saw that the Thom Browne twitter account favourited my tweet about the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. I don’t know if Thom actually runs that account but it’s the possibility that he does that makes me so fangirly about it.

Anyways, this dress. I can’t even. Adorable Whales, skeletons and tennis rackets. Random and cute always wins me over. The accordion pleats on the back of the dress are great. I would wear this to work and everywhere. A pair of black heels and a cardigan can make it perfect for the office. The photo shows that there is a coordinating cardigan if you want to go ultra matchy matchy.

Thom makes his clothing in Japan so that explains some of the crazy price point. This dress is fully lined and 100% silk. I wish everything I owned was fully lined.  You can buy this dress at Moda Operandi now, no pre-order. It’s *gulp* $3,100.
