Where can I get a red coat like the one I had before? Specific details inside.
I once had my favorite BRIGHT red coat. I bought it in Japan. I loved it. It's gone, under tragic circumstances. No matter where I look - and boy, have I looked, I have not been able to find one like the one I once had. Will you, wonderful online community, help me?
Here is what my coat looked like:
It was a long red coat, about halfway down the thigh.
Regular long sleeves.
Big white buttons, in a single line. Not double breasted - really not a fan of double buttons. The buttons went all the way to the neck, making a scarf superfluous.
The inside had really nice lining - it was white with big blue polka dots, palm-sized.
Here is an example
of a red coat I was intrigued by. However, it's out of stock in red. I've found others like this one
that were nice in thick wool, but I'm looking for more of a spring coat.
Why red? Because so many winter and spring jackets are dull. Spring especially is the time of year you need to be colorful and nothing makes me feel so good as the bright color red.
Does anyone know anything about the original coat I purchased in Japan (on the street Harajuku in Tokyo)? I'd gladly settle for something similar to the one I linked to above, as well - I've gone to modcloth.com, tulle4us.com, etsy, jcrew, and even jaccofashion and other popular sites, but none of the styles are close to what I'm looking for.
So, there's my dilemma. I am willing to compromise or be convinced, but my first jacket, which perished in a fire, was my favorite. Thank you Ask MeFi!
