    OK, I'm on a mission to find a cool "covert" [chesterfield??] style coat (to wear with a pair of black crockett & jones chelsea boots) in a color like this one, but of a good british make (if possible). planning to buy it soon, hold onto it for next fall/ winter for places like NYC and Chicago.

    Any ideas?

    Paul Smith would probably makes this sort of coat. Quality may vary though...

    cordings and new and lingwood are the most popular retailers of this kind of coat. pakeman also has it. it is a covert coat.

    Brooks will usually have one during the winter months aswell as Ben Silver if you're willing to pay their premium

    Asprey had a number of nice ones during their recent sample sale. There were some unsold at the end of the sale. I would have assumed they would have simply stored the unsold merchandise for next year's sale, but now... Maybe they'll turn up somewhere. Very nice coats, but absurdly sized: a 36 was like a 40.

    Dusty's right. That's Banana Republic from winter.

    I have one from Oliver Brown. Love it, and do indeed wear it with black shoes. Observation: they are not that heavy, and I don't find them suitable when the temperature dips below 40F.

    Certainly agree with GFM. I have a nice Polo covert-cloth coat in olive/brown with a mid-brown velvet collar (an Ebay steal at $250). I use it as a transitional coat - it is nice in spring-fall, through much of early fall and again in the current winter/spring transition.

    Most of the coats I have seen of this type are like mine - a mid-weight cloth, and not too warm.

    If you are going to Chicago, better plan on this for early fall. NYC may be a bit more forgiving, but can get pretty cold as well.
