I have a great, heavy 1980's Oscar DLR camel topcoat that I bought new in college. I'm having it taken in and refurbed soon I hope. Meanwhile looking at Sierra for a new coat. I like the looks of the Chrysalis and RL topcoats, both in the same $250-$350 RANGE. I have no experience with either.

Any preferences?

Don't have a Filene's here and haven't found anything at the two outlets.
Not fussed about price. I'm just not familiar with Chrysalis.

Some of the coats I am referring to are cashmere... for example, this one for $200
