Details

I fell in love with this piece on a research trip… I loved it’s utilitarian functionality….so many brilliant pockets…it was crying out to have a new life and perhaps a little Wakeley-fy Upcycling... A gorgeous vintage faded gold tape (from the 20’s I think) that I had previously found at a flea market was the perfect pairing… then layering it on top of a wide cocoa grosgrain created a new sporty ribbon which was completely transformative. The epaulettes were removed (who needs rank anyway?) and replaced with a luxey overarm stripe…. The cuffs wrapped with this new texture… and chest pockets trimmed as a sporty nod to where the soldier’s name once was.

I hope whoever ends up owning it in its new incarnation adds some wonderful experiences to its storied past…Enjoy
