Josefina's Rodeo Jacket
You might imagine I spotted this one in Missoula or Fort Worth, but that’s not the case.
It was Madrid, in a flat over a farmacia in the Barrio de las Letras. I'd been invited by a textile merchant to join his private game of Texas Hold ‘Em.
Josefina, across the table, wore this. Over the next five hours, I never quite pinned down her accent or, to my misfortune, her tell.
Around 2:00 a.m., I walked out onto an ancient cobblestone street, the contents of my pockets measurably lighter.
A sketch for this jacket tucked into my empty wallet.
Josefina's Rodeo Jacket (No. J7943). Western floral embroidery in all the perfect places—collar, front and back yokes, and below the artfully-curved pockets. Endlessly cozy zip-up jacket in a luxurious wool and nylon blend. Satin piping around collar, at front and back yokes, and pockets. Zip front. Acetate twill lining. Made in India.
