Top coats

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend good quality topcoats that aren't terribly expensive?
post #2 of 12
do you mean full length or 3/4? I was out on Banana Republic's site for the 1st time in months today and they've actually got some very nice wool coats of varying style and color reasonably priced.

Speaking to the BR coats, I just purchased the 3/4 length recently, and I am very impressed and happy with my purchase.  I chose the 3/4 over the longer topcoat for a few reasons.  It was less expensive, made of better materials (a wool/cashmere blend), had a full satin lining, and was available in grey.  Neither of these coats list for over $200, so I would qualify both of them as highly affordable. Sorry if I sound like I'm making a plug for the store, but I've recieved nothing but compliments on the jacket, so I feel obligated to spread the word.   Regards, Kevin

RIT- I think I am looking at the same jacket... I will be visiting a local BR to see it this weekend, but if it is decent quality, the price is right.

I was thinking of something a little more dressy than BR.

Scnupe: What are you looking to spend? Are you looking in Charlotte, or somewhere else? I'd love to help if I can....

Scnupe: I'd start with the Off 5th in the Mills Mall in Concord. Unfortunately, unless someone's having a pre-season sale that may be the only option in the price range you mentioned. (Not that you're not willing to spend enough- I got my last one on sale pre-season in the same range). Then below are some specialty stores to try, which you may already be aware of: Fairclough and Co. Bruce Julian Paul Simon Taylor, Richards & Conger Let me know if you need contact info, and I'll send it to you off list, unless someone else would like it as well. Then I'll post it.

Bluefly has a nice TSE Coat within your price range. I don't know to what extent you like/dislike shopping for clothes online, but this might be a good deal. Lots of sizes too.

you might want to take a look at the classic topcoats at www.suityourself.com (a great website, i think). they have single and DB topcoats in cashmere or lambswool, by Cardinal of Canada. i think this is the best buy for the money (100% cashmere are $1097, lambswool are right in your range..)

Great advice, Russ. The gentleman who owns that store is one of the nicest people I met in retail in the whole country. And he really knows his stuff, too. Can't recommend him enough...
