CONFIRMED!!! KATE MIDDLETON’S JACKET IS RALPH LAUREN (NOT KATHERINE HOOKER)

I’ve had an inkling of a feeling for a very long time that this blazer worn by Kate Middleton was Ralph Lauren and not Katherine Hooker. This jacket has been reported by a number of other Kate Middleton fashion/style blogs as being Katherine Hooker….

Where did this inkling of a feeling stem from you ask? Well…it all started when I stumbled upon this Ralph Lauren blazer on sale for a steal of a deal at the Hudson Bay Company:

Ralph Lauren Laduree Hacking Jacket

I noticed several similarities between this Ralph Lauren Laduree Hacking Jacket and the one Kate Middleton is pictured wearing. Here are the important details on Kate’s jacket:

Here, we can see there are 4 small buttons on the sleeve of Kate’s jacket.

And here we can see the detail of 3 thin vertical lines in the fabric on each side of Kate Middleton’s jacket.

Now here are the pics of my Ralph Lauren blazer that have the same details….

4 small buttons on the sleeve here.

And 3 small thin vertical lines in the fabric.

I’m not saying this jacket is the same as Kate’s jacket because obviously it is not. My Ralph Lauren jacket has 2 pockets on the left side where Kate’s simply has 1 pocket on each side.

However, the style and detail of the jacket are very very similar. Plus, Pippa Middleton has worn the same style Ralph Lauren jacket as mine several months back. As you can see, Pippa’s jacket has the second pocket on the left side.

And we know how much Kate and Pippa share similar tastes in clothing!

Either way….my opinion doesn’t really matter at this point because…well…Ralph Lauren has confirmed Kate’s jacket is indeed Ralph Lauren! My friend called them up a while back and they said Kate’s jacket was from a Ralph Lauren collection several years ago. I must admit…I’ve known about this for about 2 months now but I just haven’t had the time to throw a post together about it (sorry!).

This jacket is from Ralph Lauren’s current collection and you can see the style, cut, and detail (essentially everything except the colour) looks exactly the same as Kate’s jacket:

I love my Ralph Lauren Hacking jacket…which I must add I bought at the Hudson Bay Company for $80 CND (regular $300). The Bay has some similar ones on sale right now. Click here to check them out. Or you can go to the Ralph Lauren website and check out their entire selection of jackets.

Have fun!
