Is there anything better than a plaid wool coat?
This was my coat for when it gets really cold* in Portland. It’s wool construction makes it super warm, and I pair it with real gloves (not the $1 stretchy guys I usually wear) and a hat that covers my ears and neck. Then, I’m ready for any sub-30 degree weather. (Portland rarely sees temperatures in the 20’s and even more rarely does the mercury drop to the teens.)
However, my hips have exceeded the capacity of this coat, and thus I am sending it off to be consigned. Hopefully, the next person will love it as much as I do.
*I realize that Portland’s “really cold” is laughable when compared to other areas. I’ve lived in colder places, and had more intense coats. But intense coats are not needed here.
