Q: What are you looking for in a jacket? Tell me how and when you will be wearing it.
This is how I usually start my conversations with customers in Women’s Outerwear. Occasionally, I will meet a customer looking for a jacket that will be comfortable on a plane or easily packable to fit in a carry-on bag. Some women want a warm, lightweight jacket that will get them to and from school, then compress to fit in their lockers or backpacks for the day. Many times, women are looking for the “warm, very light jacket that isn’t bulky” that has been recommended to them by a friend of family member.
For the individual who is active and on the go, that wants to be warm but not restricted by weight and bulk, I recommend our packable jackets. Varying in insulation and style, we have fun packable coats to fit every active woman’s needs!
