This is kind of the coat that started it all. I’ve always loved fashion, as everybody who knows me knows, but during university my focus switched to school and I didn’t put quite as much time or money into my wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong, I certainly wasn’t slummin’ it in those years, but online clothing searches didn’t consume my evenings (as they admittedly do now). The winter after I graduated I walked into The Bay and saw this coat. It cost about exactly what I had in my bank account at the time but for years and years I had searched Ebay for a vintage striped Hudson’s Bay coat only to never find one in my size. That night I went home and researched the name on the label- Smythe, a pair of Canadian designers who make all their beautiful blazers in Canada (something I can always get behind). That was it! The next day I went back to The Bay and spent all my money on this coat and the next week I went and got a job so I could continue to buy more big ticket items like this…I was hooked. I think I’ll have this coat for the rest of my life.
