* Toggle coat in wool-cashmere with Thinsulate ($325, sale $260) - Review by koala2 as seen on The Mothership: Toggle wool-cashmere w/ thinsulate: cute casual coat but felt really thin to me. It didn't feel like it had the thinsulate lining; usually coats with thinsulate are a little heftier and thicker than what I received. It fit larger than most coats (I usually size up to a 6 to wear with thick sweaters) but even the 4 was loose enough to comfortably fit anything underneath. The pale beige is literally a very light beige color -- I think it'd be cuter if it was more of a camel color. Ended up returning it for the warmer and more fitted stadium boulevard trench.

The coat promo some have been waiting for! It's not very exciting, is it? The % is "up to 25% off." Many colors are not on sale. And the promo is only two days. "Terms are subject to change." Perhaps they will get smart and add more colors to the sale. The best promo was one of the recent 25% off sitewide. I'm not sure what people were waiting for. A $350 coat at 25% off has a savings of $87.50. The same price point at 30% off has a savings of $105. That's a difference of $17.50. Not much if you get the coat in size/color you desire. Just sayin.

  1. Plus some of the colors and sizes are already sold out! I hope they have a Black Friday special, maybe that will make up for this sad sad promo.

  2. Thanks, gigi, for the many link loves!

  3. I've been debating getting one of their coats but I'm not sure I want to bite yet... the style/color I want isn't on sale at the moment anyway.

  4. Thanks for posting this Gigi! I had been on the site this morning and noticed the coats in the sale section....I'm so so so curious about the Stadium-cloth Elements coat :)


  5. I saw this email and got excited but then was very disappointed to see the one main coat I wanted not on sale (the plaid one). :(

  6. Thanks Gigi for the link love! I agree, this is a MEH promo. The site-wide promo is much better if you're "needing" anything. Me? I don't need a coat right this moment, happy to wait for the post holiday sales + % off. Just sayin.

  7. Thanks for the link Gigi. I agree, the sitewide 25% off promo was a better promo and we knew that if they were going to have an outwear promo it would have been 30% in the best case scenario. If I had to buy a coat now I would wait for the post Xmas sale probably.
    I love my Elements coat but it has been too mild here to wear it (besides the few days around Halloween when we got the freaking snow). Not that I am complaining!
