IMG_3559

After wearing the same winter coat for at least the last 10 years, I finally decided to spring for a new one. I found this one a couple of weeks ago, and it checks off everything on the list: water resistant, huge hood that protects even in super wind, fitted in all the right places so it looks chic, lots of pockets in the right places, super toasty, and the right price–$795. Seeing as how I will probably be wearing it for the next 10 years, that’s a pretty good price per wear. The only problem is, it’s so unseasonably warm, that I haven’t been able to wear it yet. I can’t believe I’m waiting for it to get cold!

    Seriously, $795?? Wow– I’ve been a fan of Momfilter, checking in regularly- but I think I’ll take a break. A little out of touch I’d say.

    I’m with you Nicole! “Only” $795!?!?! A little out of touch indeed.

    I just bought a new winter coat for under $150 that felt like a super splurge because bills, kids, bills, “do I really need a new winter coat (I do) or can I deal with it a while longer”, etc. AND I fully anticipate that coat lasting me the next decade.

    I could go on a nice little spree for $800.

    I thought I’d find a good coat recommendation again this year! I’m so glad you posted this, Yolanda. I love it that Spiewak uses recycled feather. :-)

    Nicole, if I may… My personal experience with more affordably priced down jackets (let’s say, less than $200) have been that they shed(?) so much and after just a couple of trips to the dry-cleaners, they just become totally thinned down (if not worn out, with broken zippers, threads coming undone, etc.) and are no longer warm or even wearable. Definitely not anything I could wear for 5+ years… So I did the math and I’ve been investing in pricier options to wear for a long long time. :-)

    If you want, I’m looking at some really great deals at the sale section:

      Dear Jo,
      Thanks so much for your comments. I totally get that $795 is a crazy amount of money as pointed out by Nicole and Katherine. However, after having many cheaper coats that did exactly what you said–and seeing as how it’s the one thing I wear every single day during the winter season, I figure the PPW (price per wear!) makes it worth it. My last winter coat was a Moncler that I bought super on sale for $800 over 10 years ago is still in great working order…but my family and friends have begged me to retire it!

    I also have been a fan of momfilter but my concern with the jacket is its use of fox fur. I looked at the description to see if it was synthetic but it seemed to be real fox, no?

    Thanks for the recommendation Yolanda. My new bulky LLBean coat isn’t warm enough for NYC, a real disappointment, so I am sending it back. I am looking for a long term investment too. The Spiewak and similar styles look amazing, and since I wear my things year after year too, I am ok paying more…like you, this will be attached to my body for three months straight. I am small though, so I am hoping the xs with no petite option will fit. Stay warm!
