Our dear friend Richie has recently purchased a very vintage looking madras blazer which is a very muted yellow, blue, and red (possibly a little green as well). It is a beautiful jacket, and one that I might consider wearing. However, Richie insists that he intends to have it altered in the sleeves, and have a Yale Crest placed on the jacket. Richie, I say that is quite bold of you (I exclaimed), and when saying these words he knows I do not approve. For one, I am not much for crests, and second, Richie did not attend Yale. However, Richie quickly pointed out that his father attended Yale, and that the jacket could be perceived as a hand-me-down. In addition, he exclaimed that he liked it, and he was going to do it regardless of my opinion. Oh well, he did promise to model it on the blog when the weather grows warmer, and when it is fixed at the sleeves. The jacket on display is a similar pattern but imagine it muted, and the crest below is the crest he plans to use.
