Earlier this year I purchased a sage green Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo flared cuff jacket. I was quite jazzed that it was available in the tall range. Though I found it to run a bit big and I may not have been in love with it, I kept it. At the time, I had not yet procured my khaki trench. Now when it comes to the two options, I tend to go for the more neutral one.
I sincerely wish I had seen this jacket prior to the Banana Republic version. I cannot fathom purchasing two jackets so similar in style and color, and especially given my Shopping Moratorium 2018, I will not. That does not mean I should not share it with you. It hits my big two: it is available in the tall range and it is made of natural fibers (a cotton – linen blend).
