Yohji Yamamoto had a few deconstructed blazers, but the winner was this five-button jacket with a silk scarf attached to the lapel. Though I had to wrestle with the buttons, the final result was well worth the effort. Hanging open, the jacket was a rebellious take on the traditional prep-school blazer and hit just above my knees. And the wool gabardine would ensure that I’d stay warm all season long. 103 Grand St., at Mercer St.; 212-966-9066.
