So, as it turns out, my trip to Deadwood coincidentally coincided with this falls wild west vibe, headed by the duster jacket. I picked one up (circa 1990's) in denim form for myself at the thrift shop yesterday. The long mid calf hemline helps create a lean look. It's showing up on 2011 fall runways in a few different incarnations, most of which are not gritty enough for my liking - but I like the idea. Here's a couple I found that I wouldn't mind in my closet. What do you think? Add some jewel toned velvet and it's a bit Hendrix. Ah yeah.
