There are few fabrics in the world that keep out the cold quite the way boiled wool does. The sad thing is that most boiled wool garments tend to be so busy being utilitarian that they forget to be superfantastic, as well.
Luckily I found one boiled wool coat by Eileen Fisher that takes a little time for great details as well as warmth.
The basic lines are entirely classic, allowing you to wear this coat for years to come. At the same time, the single button and hidden snap front closure and patch pockets separate it from the crowd of purely utilitarian coats. It comes in petite as well as misses sizes, too. And while it’s available in four different colors, I have to say I particularly love this bright leaf green that’s sure to brighten even the murkiest day.
Best of all, it’s on sale! Originally priced at $258.00, it’s been marked down to just $189.00 during Garnet Hill’s October Savings. But hurry! The price goes back up after the 24th, and you don’t want to miss a deal like this.
