    I have lived in the Chicago area for most of my life. I have had so many coats for the winter. This year I had one in mind because the coat that I had worn for quite some time was beginning to show wear. I do have a number of coats but I wanted one that would be considered a “ski” coat. That is what it would be replacing. I can not tell you how many places I went to and would get one arm in and would say to my husband -no. I am rather tall and have longer arms. Many of the coats in my size therefore ran small for that reason. We ended up at an outlet store and found a jacket. It fit. It wasn’t really my style but I bought it anyway. It also helped it was more on sale than we thought. Found out it was a man’s coat. While I am not in love with the coat, it will do for now. I am not frivolous with money but because I walk a lot even in the cold I needed something.
    I appreciate your evaluation of coats and how they fit with and without sweaters. While right now it is not that cold (it has been worse), I am sure at some point it will be.

      Hi Maureen! I totally understand this struggle – it’s really hard to find the perfect one! I know it’s more expensive, but I have also heard RAVE reviews about Lole’s Marybeth Coat ( and the only reason why I didn’t get it is because I’ve heard that the proportions are better for taller women… so that might be a great option for you! It is even warmer than the one I got (and warmer than Canada Goose coats too!), which is pretty cool. And it’s on sale!
