The "Megan" jacket


Made in Lady C's favourite of all the John G. Hardy "Alsport tweed, the Russell Glen, the Megan jacket is trimmed in soft velvet, lined in silk and has real horn buttons.

Named in honour of our lovely mate Megan and inspired by Margaret Lockwood's naughty performance in "The Wicked Lady", a 1945 bodice ripper from the Gainsborough studios. The story - noblewoman turned highway robberess - was taken from the novel "The Life and Death of the Wicked Lady Skelton" by Magdalen King-Hall, in turn allegedly based on the life of Lady Katherine Ferrers, wife of the major landowner in Markyate on the main London - Birmingham road.

Stand and deliver!
