So my coat arrived. And it is not the exact, exact color I enivisioned. To be very specific, it is the color of... stop reading if you are easily grossed out by newborn baby poop... the color of breastfed-newborn baby poop. I know no other way to describe it. My friend Vicky once described this color, when I sampled it on my entryway wall as 'bile,' but frankly, I have encountered bile much less frequently, and certainly much less directly, than breastfed-newborn baby poop. Amanda has weighed in against the color, and others have weighed in against my description of the color, but I ask you, what do you think of the color? Please weigh in at right. --->
I should note that the coat is awesomely constructed, with slash pockets that zip, a zipper that opens from the bottom (necessary with such a long coat), a back slit that zips (ditto) and ipod/cellphone inside pockets.
