Happiness is a new winter coat (or something)
Le Mont
James got me this today in black, minus the fur trim. I stepped outside in it, and I can happily confirm that all of the great testimonials I'd had from people who swear by them against Canadian / New England / other horrific winters worldwide are absolutely true. Basically, we have been wearing incompetent coats for the past three years because, simply put, British winters did not require the same kind of coat that Northeast US winters require. It had been so many years since I'd had to think about this that finding my stylish black wool Danish coat insufficient guard against the elements was rather a let-down.

Excellent! And it'll last. I still have and wear the Eddie Bauer down coat I bought in 1994 - just the occasional wash, and it's still in great shape.

Northeastern winters can be horrid, and I don't know what it's like in your area today but NYC is miserable, ugh. (Also we have no heat or hot water. Am about to report the landlord. Again.)

Down coats are so durable \m/ That is some amazing wear you're getting out of yours! My landlord is very prompt when we have radiator problems. I hope we've seen the last of those for now.
