For over five years, my trusty J.Crew coat has braved both snowstorms and client dinners. Under a thin veil of denial, I’ve ignored the unraveling seams and disintegrating lining, but when the sleeve split in half a few days ago, the veil was lifted.
So far, finding a well-cut coat in a reasonable price range (under $300) has proven quite a challenge. My dream coat, the Alasdair Wool Shawl Coat, is over $1,000, so it’s time to rob a bank. Kidding!
Below are some initial ideas. I’d love to hear your recommended retailers!
