Spend enough time sifting through racks of vintage clothes and you might zero in on something with timeless appeal, some ’70s attitude, and a beautiful patina. But mostly, all you get is fool’s gold — a shapeless piece with the wrong kind of funk. Luckily there are other ways to achieve the vintage look. The sheriff’s jacket, for example, is an icon that’s come back strong this season and proves itself to be an invaluable early-winter piece.
Coach’s nod to the ’70s staple stands out thanks to its deep black dye and tumbled leather, which give it a beautiful worn-in effect — a playful contrast to its undoubtedly modern cut.
