The Dexter coat finally arrived from France a few days ago. I love it like a child. Like my child. If my child were toasty warm (in 25-degree NYC winter), dramatically stylish outerwear. I love this coat. And I paid about half what the Cop Copine store in San Francisco was asking for it. That cost was so absurdly high for an unlined wool coat, I wouldn’t even consider it despite my deep and abiding love for its perfect French lines. So I ordered it from France. For about half the price. Hooray, France!!
I was a rabid fan of Cop Copine before, but this coat has taken me to a new level. It fits like a glove and has a wide collar and tapered waist that make me look curvy and dramatic like a forties movie star. Get one if you can find it. They run true to size, which for me is a wide-shouldered 40 to my usual 8/10 jacket.
