The waist-length coat is a rare beast these days—especially now that the military look has ebbed—but after seeing this, we aren’t sure why.

This one comes from Opening Ceremony, and it balances the militant vibes with a few surprisingly homey touches, like braided grandpa buttons and a scarf-replacing shawl collar. You might not guess it from the silhouette, it should be downright snug.

And after all that stiff wool, we were looking for something a bit more accommodating.
