American Classic bonus post

The weather outside is frightful and (to some) not so delightful. It snowed a lot this morning. NYC hasn’t seen 1″ /hour accumulation in quite some time which was exciting! However, the rain came and washed most of it away. I figured this was a good time to talk about outerwear. Why not? This is the perfect time to snag a timeless coat for much, much less. Use the economic downturn to your advantage!

Like the other clothes I’ve talked about so far, clean and simple lines are the key here.
