I’ve always liked scale in most things. I’m drawn to a larger image more often than a small one. I tend more towards the grand gesture than the quiet one. I prefer a horse, say,to a dog.

In coats I’m really liking rounder and longer shapes that have a very relaxed feel. More and more solid colored coats are being challenged by bold plaid patterns. Though I’ve only just started to reach for my wind breaker, soon it will be coat season.

Whether you like solid colors or patterns, these coats all have a certain appeal. It’s also interesting that the men are each unique in their builds and carry these generously cut coats with ease.
