Austrian-Style Lambskin Jacket
The Austrian Connection.
The art of looking like a gent from the country.
England gave us one version (tweed jackets and cords).
America pushes it further (barn jackets and jeans, even on upper Madison Ave.).
Meanwhile, to the east, in the rolling green meadows and old-growth forests outside Vienna, and in the foothills of the Alps, you find another school of thought… related, but different.
This wonderful leather jacket is a prime example.
It’s a gentrified take on Tyrolean style. Rich material (supple lambskin) done with understated intelligence (think Oskar Werner).
In little towns like Schlosshof or Mistelbach, if you wore this jacket, the postman would tip his hat as he walked by and the innkeeper would serve you the biggest schnitzel.
I expect good things to happen when you wear it here, too.
