    Looking to get a new overcoat this coming Winter..

    The caveat is I am looking for something out of the ordinary (since I already have the stable colors like black, olive, camel, and grey): something in plaid and/or with a little red/maroon mixed in.

    Budget is up to $2,000.

    Any recommendation is appreciated.

    Eidos has some great overcoats. No Man Walks Alone still has some from last season in stock and should have the A/W16 batch sometime soon.

    I like a velvet contrast collar like you would see on a Chesterfield jacket. It's a nice dapper touch. By sheer coincidence, here's a reddish plaid overcoat that I made several years back (under $2000):

    You could also mess around with buttons, double-breasted, lapels, etc to make it more unique
