worth for the wear: all the perfect coats

Ralph Lauren Alpaca and wool coat $3928 at selected Ralph Lauren stores
"Somewhere along the line I knew there'd be girls, visions, everything; somewhere along the line the pearl would be handed to me."*  When you're on the road, you need a coat. The one item of clothing (along with boots) worth spending a bit more for is a coat. Ad endum: a classic coat. A coat that takes you  where ever you need to go: for warmth, for style. You put it on and you are transformed. Not a huge earth-shattering one but a quiet subtle one that happens every time you slip your arms into the sleeves (every day) for years. Now isn't that worth spending a bit more on?

These here are some of those perfect coats.
