The piece: Rag & Bone Striped Egg Coat
The investment: $995
Why it's worth it: This coat is downtown cool personified. It is the piece you'll return to occasion after occasion to look cool, without ever looking like you tried. We love the perfect borrowed-from-the-boys shape and the riff on classic stripes, giving it enough personality to shape basic jeans and t-shirts without making too much of a statement that we fear it's too flashy or that it won't last past this season (because, really when do stripes ever go out of style?). Rest assured, this is a find that would last you well beyond this Fall, Winter, and early Spring this year and the next. We suspect it'll become one of those great vintage pieces a very lucky daughter one day inherits — and what's a better testament to a worthy investment piece than that?
