I had wanted the Smythe houndstooth jacket at NAS. It wasn't (then) available in my size. It has since come back into stock in my size but at full price. Which I'm hesitant to lay out, especially with addition of taxes, duties, etc.
I'm hoping to find a patterned jacket this autumn, and houndstooth is a huge favourite and deep love of mine.
Would this jacket worth a try? I know the fit is pretty good on me, or at least it was in the older version; admittedly, I have not tried on this year's model.
Free shipping today and 30% off are tempting. Plus, no more Austerity August....
OTOH, I could also wait to see if Zara comes up with something fun a little later on. I always know I can get a decent fit there and the price is right for fast fashion.
This is more of a mid-ranged piece that I would hope to have more closet durability than a Zara piece.
