    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....10&rd=1 never had anything from DKNY before, but I assume the quality of their black label is decent.. I've been looking for a brown wool coat, thoughts on this one? Worth the money?

    I find that Donna Karan suits are generally fairly reliable. The quality of sportswear has been, in my opinion, rather more spotty. I have seen some terrific pieces, and some terrible ones, even at the Black label level. I can't comment on the material and workmanship of this particular piece, except to say that the Donna Karan wool blend pieces I've seen are a reasonable buy, at discount - and $95 is not too steep to experiment with. This piece looks fairly boxy, cut a little like a traditional bomber jacket - if that's your style, go for it.

    Good luck.

    by boxy, I assume you mean full cut, as in not exactly fitted?

    I mean that there may be a bit more room in the body, so yes.
