Even Greater Expectations Coat
Your automatic response when seeing this coat might be to put it on during your trip to the Andes or your visit to the ashram in the American Southwest.
If you really want to break some rules, you’ll wear it to your niece’s art opening in East Harlem or the college football game to which your coat appears team-neutral, yet the sheer decibel level of your cheering rivals even old man Caruthers, who’s held his season tickets so long he refers to the coach four times removed as “that idiot back in the 90s.” Finally, there’s the brisk, early-morning bicycle ride through the park. Get yourself an old beach cruiser (they’re not just for the beach) or dig out that rusty Schwinn from Aunt Eleanor’s attic.
Defy a few expectations.
Even Greater Expectations Coat (No. 5806). Wool-blend boucle from the Zanieri Mill in Italy (mostly wool, a fair amount of cotton, and a touch of poly). Medium weight so it’s not cumbersome. Head-turning contrast jacquard design at notch collar, lapel, placket, and sleeve cuffs(left side mirrors the right). Ties at the waist. Upper-calf length, patch pockets at hips, dolman-style long sleeves with turnback cuffs. Fully lined. Imported.
