|Wool Belted Coat|
From website description:
Belted button-front coat made from premium Loro Piana® wool fabric, woven in Italy. Pockets. Belts along waist and sleeve cuffs. Fully lined. 40" center back length. Dry clean only. Imported.
This is a pricey coat but it does feel luxurious on. The color is great, true camel but not too yellow. The fabric is 'naturally waterproof' the SA told me. I am not sure if it is something special or is it just wool is naturally water resistant.
The fit is generous and when I tried on smaller of my coat sizes I still had enough room for layering. I like that it is single breasted and that it buttons all the way up. I liked the finishing details like pockets and buttons. I was not crazy about the neckline. In camel color I think it needs a scarf to brighten it up, or at least a turtleneck, like the model is wearing.
It is longer on me that it is on the model, which is fine since I understand models are tall and prefer that to items being shorter on me than on models like it happens many times at J.Crew.
The fabric is substantial and it seems warm. It it not the lightest coat but that is also what I would expect.
The belt is longer than it looks in the pictures, I think the rest of it is in my pocket, you can definitely tie it but it also have prongs to cinch it.
It is an expensive and I don't own anything at similar price to compare the quality but it seems very well made. Even with the 25% off Friends and Family discount, it is still be too much for me.
|Lambswool Button-Front Plaid Skirt|
|I love this skirt. The pattern, the lambswool fabric, the berber lining, buttons, pockets, shape and did I say plaid?. Everything but the price :( Unfortunately, it is a deal breaker, but come sale time, I will definitely keep this skirt in mind.|
|The mirror was awful, sorry|
|Fabric matched on the sides and in the back|
I like how they styled it on the website with the lavender sweater. There is some blue in the pattern and I imagine it would be very pretty with light blue top.
That's all folks!
What do you think of Brooks Brothers offerings?
Do you think they are worth the price?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
