Breckenridge 3-In-1 Coat
Pretty good coat
The only drawback with this coat is the lining is only connected by the zipper, so every time you put the coat on the lining in the back by your neck is hanging down about 8 inches, the sleeves tend to pull out and the entire lining is askew. I spent about 2 hours hand tacking and sewing the lining to the back neck, added buttons and elastic loops to the sleeves and sides to keep the lining in place.

I made a poor selection when I bought this coat online but Catherine's local store returned it easily and painlessly. It is a 3 in one coat. The three pieces are a hood, an outer coat and an inner jacket/lining. The full price was outrageous especially considering all the problems with this coat. The sale price would have been the correct pricing but only if the hood, inner jacket/lining and collar of the outer jacket had been properly constructed...but they weren't.
The hood should have been secured to the outer coat with a zipper instead of cumbersome buttons. My arthritic fingers couldn't manage them at all.
The collar of the outer jacket is not designed to be worn without the hood. It is not faced in a tailored manner to allow the collar to be worn open or even zipped completely because the points of the collar dug into my neck causing great discomfort.
The main body of the inner jacket was made of a fabric which clings to the body rendering it useless; therefore, it could not be used as a liner or as a separate jacket. As a liner it makes it difficult to put the jacket on and as a jacket it clings so much it is of no use.
The outer jacket was nice. I liked the style very much.
With all the defects in its design and construction it is a poor excuse for a 3 in 1 jacket even at 60% off full price!

Love this Coat
I hate winter and being all bundled up. This coat keeps you warm and it feels wonderful to wear. Not too bulky. The zip out interior makes a great coat all on its own. Perfect for airplane hopping. Folds up nicely and easy to carry-on. This was a great investment buy for when I have to go up north. Glad I choose this coat in black. Received many complements on it and the leather gloves with fur trim that complement the coat. Warm and great fit!
