I am really not much for most designers' take on the peacoat. Usually, the lapels are too small, the fabric is too thick/boxy, and no one wants to pay any attention to detail.
But, I love this peacoat! First, the large lapels and the throat latch are amazing. Nothing frames your face so well as a peacoat with the lapels flipped up. It draws the eyes up and is especially nice for when the wind whips between tall buildings.
Second, the fabric is goldilocks: because of the cashmere blend the fabric is light, elegant and soft, but also surprisingly warm. I live in the DC area and regularly travel to NY, so this coat is great for both climates.
Finally, the attention to detail is what you pay for: you have horn buttons, really well tailored fastenings and details. This is one of the things that makes it so versatile, I'll dress it up, wearing a suit underneath or dress it casual with a sweater .
This item was so nice, I had to buy a second one in another color.
