Winter Coats. What's your timeless "go to" winter jacket that gets the most compliments? - Page 3

As I've told you before, beautiful coat stitches. Be sure to leave the label on the sleeve though. More compliments that way.
True 1%ers all.
But don't forget Simon, he got in the club for $50. Helluva deal.
I'm not sure what shearling you're referring to, but the Paul Stuart's are overpriced for my taste. All fashion lines are, to some extent. Just b/c it's once in a decade, it still doesn't make it easier to get ripped off.
Anyway, I really like the Orvis coat. The fact that it's $250 (half the cost of Gloverall) may seal the deal. But, it's made of Wool/polyester/polymide/acrylic, while the Gloverall is made of Wool/polymide only. As an added bonus, I was already looking at gloves from Orvis, so this will save me shipping as well. I might order this coat within a few days. Thanks for this, guys.
Glad to see you like the Orvis coat. It's a good buy.
In reference to your question about a navy shearling coat, you posted two pictures of coats from the Paul Stuart websites.
The first picture, included here, shows the "Wheeler" coat, which is made of navy blue shearling.
In retrospect, I may have assumed you were considering buying it, since you posted it and mentioned the complements it would garner.
If so, I apologize for the misunderstanding.
I also have an Invertere Bearcat coat as listed on the previous page - it draws comments, but very much love or hate.
It's listed as a men's coat, and the section of the store it was in when I tried it on seemed to reinforce it as such. I think the photo's reversed, since it does always kind of look "off" to me when i look at it. Definitely men's, though, yes.
Style novice here......I like the looks of these duffel coats. But are they appropriate for business casual wear? Can you wear one over dress shirt and dress pants? Can you wear one over a suit or sportcoat?
Well, I suppose there's "winter" and there's WINTER. Out here where where we only get "winter", I get the most compliments from my retro Pendleton Topster that I bought a few years ago from Duluth Trading. Don't waste time looking up their website, they don't have it anymore. It's a sport coat cut shirtjac. Plenty warm enough for La-la land.
Looks like a hipster take on a polo, FWIW.
Is this model pissed because he is wearing an overpriced coat? or because he has a ghoulish girlfriend? You decide.
