i actually already have a blue and a grey chesterfield but both are pretty conventional, this one has more volume and a beautiful drape to it. (tried on the grey, haven't yet seen the blue IRL). hard to describe but there's a slight springiness in the fabric- it doesn't just fall inertly- and the shoulders, while slouchy, have a touch of structure, more from the construction than any padding.
i wear black pants a lot in winter so i guess either would go...
i like the blue better but that might just be the photo
I'm probably not going to buy either, but curious what others think of these:
I tried the black version of the fishtail on in store, and it looked great IRL, but I sure wasn't going to part with 1.8k(!) for what's essentially still a fairly plain cotton parka. Now the black one has sold out everywhere and I'm not sure what a snow-white coat will look like when it's been worn one season (or even five or ten seasons...).
