"company of we" toggle coat


thanks to the fashionisto, i've fallen head over heels for this toggle coat. the length seems to be perfect and i love Love L00o00VE the blue wool with the white toggle ropes. this coat reminded me of the dior homme coat i featured previously, but at a fraction of the price. this coat retails for US$325! tell me, should i or should i not?


the only thing i probably dislike, is when it's toggled (or buttoned) up. it looks... tight. and also i do have a similar coat in red. but i really like it!!!

so the question is, should i or should i not? dilemma!

  2. Just get it in your size! The model's too tight because it's too small for hm (check shoulders and sleeve lengh). L00o00ve your blog! Juan

  3. Love the white toggle ropes, not usually a fan of the leather collar strap but it seems to do well here. But... I can't stand the detailing on the back of the collar. You can see it in better detail on their site. Some odd greenish, yellowish, blue with white striped pattern which in my opinion ruins a brilliant (yet unaffordable for me) coat. great blog btw

  4. anon 01: yea it looks small on the model but i think one size bigger it might be too big for him.

    anon01: i rather like the details on the back of collar though. yea it is rather pricey with the weak stirling.

    dilemma!

  6. the ropes bother me when left unbuttoned. but the colour is amazing, and i love the way it looks when it's buttoned up!

  8. I too thought of the Dior Homme duffle coat when I saw the toggle coat in the lookbook!

    I would get it but they ran out of my size (XS). Do you think they'll restock since its a new collection?

  9. Joe, this coat is adorable, and your poll shows 64% saying "yes," so I think you need to get it and show us how it looks in real life :-)

  10. the price is steep. it's a sweet jacket, and I like the toggles, but only to an extent.... not to the extent that I would pay $325 though
