Is There One Vendor You Tend To Buy Coats From?

Almost every coat I have bought from Q is Dennis Basso.  I just love his designns!

I have to try coats on.  I ordered one DB years ago and I should have sent it back.  Right now my favorite winter coat is a Kenneth Cole because it has a 2 way zipper, a must for me and very hard to find.

I have two or three beautiful DB coats, and I use them every winter but my favorite manufacturer for a truly serious winter coat (I'm in a truly serious part of the country) I choose Carhart coats and they have to have a hood~!

I like Lands End and Talbots for coats.

I have two winter coats from Dennis Basso.  Very warm, too.  One spring coat from Susan Graver.  I might have bought Susan's TSV the other day if it had come in petite sizes.  I could tell the sleeves were going to be too long with no way to roll them up and get away with it.

I love the Denim &  Co.  bonded fleece coats.   They look good,  are very warm and wash beautifully.   Mostly our daytime winter weather just requires a jacket,  we do get some very cold windy days too which is when I wear my coat.

@Mmsfoxxie I have the exact same problem! I must get petite sizes in coats in order for them to fit right and for the sleeves not to be a mile too long. That's why I really like Lands End for most of my coats. Talbots is very good, too, for petite.

@Goldengate8361, Yes, we really have to be careful, don't we, lol.  Of the Basso coats, one actually came in petite.  The other one was reversible, so I simply rolled the sleeves.  Susan Graver coat was reversible, too.  But you get tired of having to get coats with roll up sleeves.  And those that say simply get a tailor should realize the expense of that.  Had I been smart, I would have been a seamstress and saved myself a lot of money, lol.
