Billy Reid has been a fair amount of backwoods jackets in his catalog, but this is the first bit of outerwear that looks like it could take you through a northern winter.

It’s dubbed the Mountain Coat, and while he doesn’t say which mountain, it seems like it’s built for chillier places than his native Alabama. Our favorite part, aside from the tweedy check pattern, is the comfortingly fuzzy lapel, both of suggest Mr. Reid isn’t afraid to dip into thrift store style, and come out with a sturdy, beautiful garment.

It’s coming in a bit too late for this winter…but there’s always next year.

—R.B.
