Question on Storm System Winter Coats...

I'm wondering if anyone has found a winter coat of Loro Piana Storm System fabric that is good quality but less money than the Loro Piana coats?

I'm looking for an outer coat styled like a Horsey Jacket (somewhat long, side vents) but in Storm fabric.

I'm looking for something in the $1-1.5K range or less. Any ideas?

Does Zegna or any other label use this material?

Wait for the Saks and Neiman sales on Loro Piana, currently at 30% off and 40% off respectively. I suspect sometime in January we will see Loro Piana items near 70% off. At that point, you should be able to buy a storm system winter coat by Loro Piana at the price you want. No need to look for substitutes...

Certainly an option but while at Neimans today the Storm coat I wanted was $3,200. I would need a big discount.

That's like four whole feet of cable you can lay.

I 2nd that HF coat - I may have to get one for myself! I've seen LP Storm System coats for as low as $200 at the Saks outlets - right now they have 50% off all outerwear... may be worth checking out - although none as nice as the HF just posted...

^^ That is a nice HF coat.

I have a Storm System coat and I'm very happy with it.

I got a donegal tweed storm system coat from brooks brothers outlet a few seasons ago. It retailed for $550 or so. I paid $125 and love it. Totally blocks wind. Very soft wool. What a deal.
