|J Crew Icon Trench in Wool-Cashmere|
One year I ordered 2 or 3, I can't even remember, but it was ridiculous, and I sent them all back.
The problem: camel often has a washed gray undertone which is not very flattering, it can look as dull as dishwater.
I'd nearly given up hope of ever finding an acceptable camel coat (short of buying MaxMara which is a big splash) until I noticed this Icon Trench in heather acorn.
The Icon Trench is a particular favorite of mine: I own the cotton in black and the wool-cashmere, again in black. I like the fit and the practicality of this coat, it's great for travel but also just dependable for everyday. It's not too long which makes it easy to get in and out of the car and it has a fuller bottom so it doesn't restrict one while out walking.
I would say the heather acorn is more of a light heather brown with slight shades of a golden undertone. It is slightly darker than these photos allow.
The tailoring is very nice.

I'm wearing it with the Goldsign jeans from J Crew, I love these jeans.
The Icon Trench in Wool-Cashmere also comes in navy and cabernet.
Hope your week is off to a brilliant start.
I'm going to relax later this afternoon with the new Vanity Fair featuring Our Fair Duchess!
