OK, People. I need to know where i can find the jacket he was wearing in the "santa claus is coming to town" video on youtube.
the jacket he wears with the knitted scarf (grey?)[1:14-1:16 sec] my dad wants it for christmas and i need someone to tell me the designer, or even the type of coat that is.
THANK YOU!

Hi there. I hope this will help. JCPenney is having a special
sale on peacoats (which is the type of coat that you mention.)
They have a choice of styles. It's a very popular type of
coat now and is a classic.

Hope you find one.

Josephine, if you look again, it's not a peacoat. It's much too long, the fabric is wrong too: this doesn't appear to be a heavy wool but perhaps a gabardine. It definitely is a short trench coat. It's belted and has a back rain flap, a central vent, belted cuffs and is double-breasted and has a napoleonic collar. On my monitor it appears navy. "ineed...", Burberry invented the trench coat and they have lots of styles, but they tend to be pricey. They are top quality, but you can find other, more affordable brands of trench coats everywhere.

Thank you, VEGI! Once again, I've learned it's very
important to be careful and not jump to conclusions.
I'm so glad you came on and gave her the right infor-
mation. Sorry to say I was in a hurry and was not
looking at that particular shot. Recently I read
a post where a man said he was glad that Michael
had brought the peacoat back in style and my son
plans to get one. Yes, it's plain (in the quick
shot) that one is navy. Anyway, I plan to be
more careful.

Hey, INEED..., sorry about that. It's great that
VEGI had the full info!

Good luck.

Jo

Jo,
don't worry about it. I'm a fashion geek, so I love this stuff. I really do like pea coats, but my vintage Burberry trench coat is one of my very favorite pieces. Michael looks great in everything, but everyone looks great in a trench!

VEGI, thanks. I know what you mean about trenchcoats.
I've have many over the years and still have one in my
closet. I mainly like classic styles and am glad that
now we have more chances to get them as opposed to some
years when everybody seemed to be wearing the same
style of the day.

Take care,
Jo
