30 Western & English Today LATE SPRING 2015 QUICK-CHANGE Artistry RESOURCES: Dubarry of Ireland (860) 767-0468 dubarry.us Goode Rider (415) 637-6226 gooderider.com Kerrits (800) 274-7946 kerrits.com O'Shaugnessey (253) 732.8550 osapparel.com Outback Trading Co. (610) 932-5141 outbacktrading.com SHORT JACKET: For a technical and stylish athletic topper, try on Goode Rider's Active Jacket. It's lightweight, in a streamlined, f gure- f attering silhouette presented in contrasting textures and details. It has an MSRP of $145. It features a quilted nylon front and back and Polarf eece on sides and sleeves to keep you comfortable and dry. Nice touches include a ref ective zipper taping and silver horse bit zipper pulls on sleeve and hidden pockets. Choose jacket colors of smoke or lavender, and don't forget the vest in British khaki and black (MSRP $111). For late spring at Goode Rider, preppy met sport, say co-owners Lorna Goode and Kristin Calandra. "A sof ness of spring emerges with faded and bleached nuances," says Calandra. "Clear and neutral shades set the tone for a calm and luminous season. It's a minimal feel but with rich multiple surface ef ects, and contrast textures and details." ÜBER-LONG JACKET: Outback Trading Company likes this sassy Mae long jacket for fall, and so do we. "Every detail was designed to make this a user-friendly, machine wash gentle item," says Trina Hatf eld, Outback Trading's public relations manager. "T e faux-fur lapel is removable for washing and to give you a completely new look." Hatf eld says customers asked for longer-style jackets that traditionally cost more—Outback's Mae long jacket is MSRP $154. "T is jacket was designed to be classy without the classy price tag," she says. Outback's creative teams design by color groups and named one group "Autumn Harvest," to which the Mae belongs, with tones that encourage playfulness. "T ey found this material and it just worked," she says. "We like to use the fabric a few ways so they also designed a scarf. T is jacket has swagger just like Mae West did!" LONG JACKET: "With a belted trench silhouette, the Rowan tweed jacket transcends def nition within traditional conf nes," says Danny Hulse, general manager of Dubarry USA. It's constructed of Scottish-woven tweed and 100 percent Tef on-coated new wool to guard against wear and staining, Hulse says. For the wool-aversive, there's something "scrumptious in its place," he says, citing the poly-suede inside collar and cuf , f eece-lined hand-warming pockets and jacquard inner lining, all at MSRP $699. "Rarely do you come across a statement piece that is also f t for everyday wear and so classic that it won't look out of place when your daughter inherits your wardrobe," he says. "We love this jacket for its versatility without sacrif cing function, which makes it appropriate everywhere, any time."
