It's wool-blend and I would say medium weight...so, it makes a great transitional coat or would be perfect for those in milder climates.
The wool is not super soft but what it lacks there, it makes up for in style. This coat offers a tailored fit without the price tag. It retails for $250 and has been marked down to $198 with an additional 30% off ($138.60). Also, it qualifies for free shipping.
So, if you're in the market for a plaid coat, give this one from Banana Republic a try. It's a perfect combination of the classic tie belt coat paired with fashion forward plaid.
