Banana Republic’s Monogram collection is a bit more form fitting than their traditional line, which is one reason I loved this coat so much. It’s clean lined and the tighter fit makes it have a “high fashion” look that you’d expect from a brand that cost three times as much.
The small I tried on fit perfect with a t-shirt on, but layering is going to be crucial as it gets colder in New York City (where I live) so a little extra room is needed. That being said, I picked up a medium and called it a day.
If you want this coat you’ll have to stop by your local Banana store and hope they carry the Monogram collection because this coat isn’t on their site. If your local store doesn’t have the Monogram collection I suggest you take a look at this blue peacoat that can be picked up on their site. It has a great fit and is a classic item that you can’t go wrong with.
Update: I can’t begin to tell you how many compliments I’ve received on this coat. It’s fitted style really amps up the look.
