A military style coat that reached to her knees, a shiny silver puffy parka coat with faux fur trim around the hood, no coat at all despite the frigid weather and rudely gusting wind, a fitted scarlet woolen coat that reached to her ankles, a sandy colored duffle coat with sable toggles and straps, a navy pea coat with the wide lapel and collar folded upwards, a beige trench coat with the belt fastened around his middle,a wax jacket, a barbour jacket, tweed and velvet trench coat, an Italian leather jacket tailor made in London's Camden street, a fitted suede jacket cut off at the waist, a puffy sleeved carriage coat, sheepskin bomber jacket, sheepskin flight jacket, fur coat, a tweed jacket.

The coat was blue like a midwinter night an hour before pitch dark; that colour you see as velvet no matter what the texture is. Yet even under my chilled fingertips the fabric was far from soft. Such a feminine cut in coarse fabric made little sense, why make something so exquisite that feels like every grandpa's old oiler jacket?
