While it’s not quite pea coat weather in Texas, I’m heading to NYC this weekend with a girlfriend of mine, and I wanted to get a new jacket for the trip. I looked high and low to thoroughly assess my options, and ended up getting this J. Crew coat. I adore J. Crew so much – and their winter line is incredible. All of the bejeweled sweaters get me so excited.ย 

I thought I’d share my other considerations. I liked the bright cobalt color of the other J. Crew jacket, and the professionalism of the 3.1 Philip Lim coat. Burberry jackets have always been my favorite, and this pea coat is no exception.

What are your thoughts? Have you been coat shopping this year?

  1. i think i only wore my purple one during our three-day trip to chicago last year, so no new coat for me! love that cobalt blue though! i think you travel some place cool every weekend. jealousss.

    • oooh THE chicago trip!!!!! yes, pea coats don’t get much use in Texas. I love that bright blue! actually wearing cobalt blue j crew wedges at work today!

  2. you should have gotten the factory version of this coat – it’s 100% wool versus this one, makes the world of a difference in true cold climates!
