Searching for a Winter Peacoat: Hidden Gems at Wilson's Leather8:56:00 PM
When I think of Wilson's Leather, I think of the middle-aged man in the peak of his mid-life crisis, looking to buy a "cool" leather jacket because his wife would not let him get the Harley Davidson that he really, actually wanted.
I recently visited a Wilson's Leather outlet near my College. I was looking for a 3/4 length peacoat for my semester in London.
Upon entering the store I was hit with the intoxicating aroma of "man." I'm not talking about smelly B.O. I'm talking about sexy, manly, leather. Instantly, I was skeptical of finding anything even close to "feminine" in the store.
Thankfully, I was wrong. Wilson's Leather had a fantastic selection of quality, low-priced, and FEMININE coats. They had over 15 different options of 3/4 length peacoats. And they were all between $40-$90!
It had to meet 3 requirements:
1) BLACK: It needed to match all of my scarves, plus, a cream coat is a magnet for dirt.
2) 3/4 length: It needed to reach the bottom of the hemline when I wore it with dresses and skirts. Paired with tights and boots, this would create that adorable European-girl silhouette. Is there such a thing as the "European-girl silhouette"? I don't know, but in my mind there is.
3) Belted: Just because it's winter, it doesn't mean we have to hide underneath big, potato-sack coats. A belted coat promises a feminine silhouette, even if you think you have "no waist."
