I splurged with an end of year bonus and bought this jacket as I'd been looking for a camel topcoat for quite a while. After 2 months of owning this, the splurge was 100% worthwhile. I look for excuses to wear this coat as often as I can. Walking the dog? Yep. Walking to work in the snow? Yep. Date night out? Yep. Company holiday party? Yep. Grocery store in sweats on the weekend? Yep. This is a coat that's an investment, but feels like it will last a lifetime and is a good alternative to the 4 different winter puffys I tend to cycle through regularly.
The fit is on-point. Perfectly fitted (I'm 6'-0", 175lbs in a medium) in the shoulders, sleeve length, and room to layer underneath. The length of the jacket is a bit longer than others, hitting right at or below the knees - but I dig it. I've gone with a t-shirt on underneath if it's warmer and also had it layered over a suit. There's 2 sets of buttons - 2 on the interior breast if it's freezing outside, and 3 outside. The handwarmer pockets may be the most underrated feature of this coat. I use them constantly for keys, wallet, etc. This is the first Todd Synder piece that I purchased, but it definitely won't be the last.
