    I will return them and re-purchase them then.

    I asked when was the next sale and they said the week before Thanksgiving.

    What's your source?

    The "When is the next Brooks Brothers sale?" thread. Very sneaky.

    If you like it buy it. Otherwise check the Men's Clothing Classifieds, Virtual Clothes Horse, Shop the Finest or even the clearance section on Brooks Brothers.

    Buy a wool trench from Burberry or somewhere. Why are you so hostile towards coats? Isn't it normal to wear a coat in winter?

    That appears to be shearling which is pricy (and very warm). You might want to check STP. At one time, they had some reasonably priced Astons. Nice hides, so-so manufacturing.

    You should bring a decent jacket as the weather can be quite chilly, particularly at night. And a scarf, too.

    Here is one suggestion - the quilted Barbour Chelsea jacket - that should look good with your sweaters. And is a nice transitional weight - you can get the usual lightweight one or a lined one (I just got the lined version), both under $250. And they are a nice slim but unlike many of the Barbour line. And there is a Barbour store in Soho - on Wooster. And they should look good with your sweaters. You are welcome...
