it may only be august, but it's never too early to plot your next winter coat purchase. i'm going to have to sit this one out due to my coat shopping spree last winter, but i won't say no to trying one or two on while in nyc.
a.p.c. plaid toggle coat, $616, available at Impulse.
does it come with a detachable hood, too?
Mayle black and white wool bomber, $835 at Impulse.
not technically a coat, true. but it looks warm enough.
Mayle nadia coat, $1400 at shopjake.com
i'm not sure how i feel about this coat. there are so many things wrong with it. white? leather trim that looks suspiciously like a dog collar? do i like the tiered sleeves or not? why is it so expensive? and yet, i rather like the general shape of the coat, the way that it falls straight and narrow without looking uncomfortable.
United Bamboo short toggle coat, available at Stel's. probably costs $700-1000, judging from previous collections.
jon at stel's showed me the united bamboo lookbook. i hope they're getting this coat soon. i love the royal blue color, the wide, luxurious cut with the lapel/hood lying open.
