I met a young fella going to be in the Army, and he happened to talk to me about the Jacket I was wearing. Staring with jealousy, he came about describing the name of the Jacket, and explaining it was worth hundreds of pounds. Surprised as I was as I picked it up from a Car Boot Sale, for its segmented colour palette and overall constructed design. The Royal Army Medical Corps Officers Mess Dress is a traditional two piece set used in ceremonies during the Army. Cropped above the waist, I loved the red on black segmented collars, shoulder detail and the quality of this jacket is incredible. I started researching this exact jacket on Google and comes across for £800. Well I definitely got a bargain! It's my fourth LFW outfit, wearing maroon purple socks this time, theming in with the burgundy, purples and blacks.
