Ask the MB: Camel Hair Coat

Camel Hair Trench Coat via J. L. Powell, $2297.00
Camel Hair Trench Coat via J. L. Powell. $2297.00.
Q: Any tips for a camel hair coat (tan?) for winter wear? I'm looking for an alternative to urban-type coats and would like something more classic. Or is it too old-fogey classic?!
--Gerald


A: We checked traditionalist sites Ralph Lauren, Pendleton, Brooks Brothers, and J. Press, and couldn't find a single camel hair coat. Gerald, this is a sign, either to abandon the idea or double down with this $2300 trench from J. L. Powell (originally $4950).
