ICYMI: I got this jacket a couple weeks ago after seeing that it was a nice dupe for this jacket and I’m pretty pumped about it.I love military/band inspired jackets – if it’s double breasted, I want it (bonus if the buttons are metal and engraved). First off, the Gap version is made differently – I really like the metal buttons and the hints of velvet piping all around it whereas the VB one has plastic buttons and I feel like the fabric is not very durable. I also like that this is more of a “jacket” than a blazer so I could dress it up or down. Second off, the obvious price difference – a little over 7 times more perhaps?? You can’t get a better deal than that! My only complaint is that the hooks on the jacket are not very user friendly – they are small and super close to the fabric so it takes quite a few tries to get them to lock together. Other than that, you will definitely be seeing more of this jacket around here because I have now been wearing it nonstop! If you end up purchasing your own, send me some pictures and/or let me know how you’d style it – maybe I’ll share a few on Insta-stories!
See you in the next post!
