It’s been a bit too warm for winter coats, so I’ve received a few e-mails asking for trench coat recommendations. Of course, a Burberry trench is the heirloom-quality coat to which I aspire, but here are some choices in friendlier price points.
This is the one I own, and I really like it. The fabric is heavy, the fit is nice and the quality of the buttons and buckles is good. There isn’t a better trench in this price range.
This is a Nordstrom exclusive item. It comes in regular and petite, and it has a detachable liner for added warmth on chilly days. It also comes in black, if stone isn’t your color.
