Brown Corduroy Studded Set
Brand Embers /Cinders
Roncelli suits or some version of them are always on my radar. This set is reminiscent of those wonderfully tailored rocker suits laden with studs, in a rare chocolate brown corduroy fabric.
The set includes a tailored jacket, with long sleeves, big butterfly collar and tailored fit through the bodice. The jacket is a snap-front closure, with rows of shiny, domed studs on each side of the waist that wrap around the sides of the jacket. The back of the jacket has oval of studding applied to each elbow, with smaller rows of studs along the front yoke, each cuff, and the collar.
The jacket is lined with a soft geometric print fabric that feels like cotton to the touch.
The pants, meanwhile are unlined, and cut in the silhouette so many of my fave 70s jeans and bottoms are -- high waisted, fitted through the waist, bum and hips, that flare out in the leg, finishing in a wide bell bottom. And of course -- and because details are everything -- the same smaller domed studs found on the jacket run vertically along each outer seam. Wear this set together or break it apart and mix with your other wardrobe pieces.
I fell in love with and originally bought this set for myself, but was told by my tailor that altering it to fit me would jeopardize the original look of the set and require re-working of the studs. So, I have decided to relinquish this lovely in favor of someone who actually can fit and work the hell out of it.
