I just need to take a moment to call everyone’s attention to the new Women’s Vineyard Jacket from Charles River. It’s on page 10 in the catalog, and here’s the link:
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this might be one of the cutest, most stylish promotional jackets I’ve ever seen.
Hopefully, this is a harbinger of what 2009 will bring to the industry. For one thing, forget the six-month lag. This piece is right in line with current retail trends.
Plus, a defined waistline makes for a really flattering, classic look (see any episode of Mad Men if you don’t want to take my word for it). And for women’s promotional wearables especially, the concept of a good fit has left a little to be desired, although I think we’re moving in a positive direction where this is concerned.
So kudos to Charles River for this awesome piece.
Have a few fall favorites of your own? Keep me posted.
