Belstaff makes great coats. I am happy with my waxed moto jacket from Ralph.

Look at the brand 'The Kooples'. French fashion house with 'rock' & military influenced classics.

Great material on my mid weight coat, made in Italy.

Not the cheapest, TBH. You will spend at least $400 with a sale on

Here my personal opinion:
1) Agree with LP and Cucinelli, great quality/materials but expensive.
2) Moncler no longer what it used to be. Probably the change in owners has diluted it.
Below 1) I would rather go for Moorer these days.
3) If the outside temperature merits it, but not nice if you're wearing a suit
4)-5) Yawn...
again, personal view. It changes with age, bear in mind I'm not in my 20s.

Summary: agree with comment on quality of garment, style and finishing: prefer to go for Italian-made (mostly good value for money).

How Appropriate is this? - Need a new coat (Originally Posted: 11/30/2013)

Hey Y'all,

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

I just moved to NYC and have been at MBB for a couple months now. I need a new coat and was wondering how appropriate this one is for a 1st year?

The pockets by the chest and the straps on the shoulder pads worry me a little but wanted to get other peoples input.

I usually have a hard time finding clothes that fit appropriately due to having a small frame and this one seemed to fit nicely when I tried it in store.

Any thoughts whether this is good for a 1st year consultant?

Nope :/

I had a feeling this wouldn't work...any suggestions? (would be greatly appreciated!)

btw i grew up/worked for ~2 years in a much smaller and laid back city(albeit at a different firm) and I never really had to deal with this...dress policy was pretty flexible as long as you excelled at work. Still getting used to NYC I guess.

also figured consulting would be a bit more laid back than IBD

EDIT:

Any thoughts on this: bit.ly/185JX8I

Buy yourself one of the $100 overcoats at Uniqlo. It's not the highest quality in the world, but it will hold you over until you can find a "real" coat to buy.

Do not buy the coat you linked in the OP.

Go to Men's Wearhouse, or JosABank and ask them for their advice. They should have nice coats for young professionals for under $200.


Never get advice from these clerks. They are horrible. When in doubt, go conservative.
