I spent the entirety of my stay in New York wearing this coat and blank blank blank. The blank blank blank is because nothing else matters while wearing this teddy bear overcoat. All you see is a boxy silhouette and a hint of ankle and whatever shoe you're wearing, and that's perfectly fine with me. When it's winter and cold and you have decided to spend your long weekend walking around a chilly winter city sight seeing you don't really want to worry or care about "an outfit." This coat was outfit enough for me. And while I'm sure most men hated this coat (Nick sure does and does not hesitate to tell me when I ask) I did manage have some fans of the look, all female. Go figure. You just gotta do you, people. I don't really care what anyone thinks about it because I happen to love it. As I've mentioned before, this has been a dream coat of mine since the 90's. I found it used in a size US 8 (which let me tell you for an oversized coat translates to enormous). I took it to my favorite and most trusted tailor in SF (Sally at San Francisco Tailors is a pure unique genius) that worked wonders, literally rebuilt the entire coat for me, and now it's a dream piece. So go ahead haters, hate it.
