Must-Have: Vince (No, Not Jen's Ex) Car Coat
September 24, 2007
So say you could only buy one new thing for fall – what would it be? Sure you could invest in a new pair of gray trousers or even splurge on some new boots, but anyone who's anyone (or who reads The New York Times) knows that one can't-do-without item this season is Vince's black patent leather car coat.
This standout style is flying off the racks of all the stores that carry it and we're guessing it will be darn-near impossible to get your hands on now that it's "famous." But really, is anyone surprised this chic jacket is selling so well – the boxy cut, cropped sleeves, and big, covered buttons are a definite recipe for success. Add patent leather to the mix and you've got star on your hands.
So congrats Vince, on designing a completely covet-worthy coat and congratulations to us for finding it for you. Pick yours up at any of the retailers below:
Now, before you go flocking to your luxury retailer of choice, we have to remind you we won't all be able to get our hands on this fab coat (and would we really want to anyway?). That's why we've compiled this selection of suitable and stylish substitutions. Enjoy!
