i have a thing for saddle brown leather, i always have. whether a monk strap church’s shoe, a jacques adnet chair, an hermès cape cod watch, or an rth tote, whatever it may be, it’s always better in saddle brown leather.

something else i’m feeling lately is suede, chocolate brown suede. there is something about a suede coat right now that feels right. probably because it’s fall, i especially love it with a grey cashmere sweater and jeans.

enjoy a few of my favorite fall pieces to buy for both men and women. all go with and are mixed in with saddle brown leather and chocolate brown suede. all set by the back drop of susan snyder’s sonoma home that was in veranda last year and aerin lauder’s aspen home that was in vogue.

what’s not to love about saddle and suede- the best part is when they are both mixed together!
