one of my favorite lines in casino royale is when vesper says to bond: “there are dinner jackets, and there are dinner jackets.  this is the latter.”

after a stop at billy reid the other day, i now have my very own dinner jacket.

the shell of the jacket is made of raw silk, and it is fully lined in silk.  the details are just breathtaking: the notched lapel, the exposed stitching, the fully covered buttons, the double vent in the back….i could go on and on.

this is easily the most well-made piece of clothing in my closet.  i love how you can actually see and feel the craftsmanship that went into sewing the jacket.

the jacket will be perfect for work, but is also great for throwing over a dress or jeans for a night out.  i can’t wait to start wearing it!
