PLEAT Picks: Coat Calling

Buying a fall coat is a lot like filing your taxes. It’s time consuming, potentially costly, and you put it off for as long as possible (at least until the IRS, or Old Man Winter, comes knocking). But, deep down, you know it’s inevitable.

In an attempt to lessen this dreaded ordeal for you, we at ThePleat have compiled a few choice selections.

No need to buy a safe and classic (yawn) black wool, navy double-breasted, or camel something-or-other this season. Fun, unexpected details like color-blocking, oversized avant-garde collars, punchy hues, asymmetrical zippers and faux-fur make these coats more playful, without jeopardizing their long-term appeal.

Look at it this way: a fall coat is an annual investment that pays dividends instantly. Uncle Sam’s usually a bit slower to open his wallet once he’s been paid.
