Just why are these jackets called ‘dusters’? Where I come from, a duster is a soft cleaning cloth for well, dusting. I certainly wouldn’t do any dusting with this jacket, probably not even while wearing this jacket. It’s a mystery to me where the name comes from. But nonetheless, I want one!
We love the long and flowing sleeves, the open back, and the gorgeous frill around the edge of this jacket. And it all starts with a simple magic ring.
