So THAT's where my coat comes from. It has some shit about design studio on the inside and it's made of 100% wool, really rare. It actually has a whole story: I went there looking for a slim-cut overcoat and found a nice 3-button black one in a soft fabric, bought it, and then when I was at home and reading SF I noticed that it was 70/30 wool/polyester.
I got pissed and marched back the next day and the saleslady, who was really sweet(and hot!), showed me the coat I now have, in a smooth, glossy, almost suit-like thick wool. Covered placket, real buttonhole, just lots of nice detailing. Not as warm but 10X more stylish and only $50 more. It just FELT a million times better than all the other stuff there, they only had about 3 in the whole store, and I never saw it online or anywhere else.
I honestly used to think it somehow ended up there by mistake. But maybe it was just that premium line. Do you remember what it was called?
