But nice catch on the Beans trip!

Finding the coat was the great catch. I am picky about winter coats. Saleswomen have been known to flee the scene in tears when I list the requirements.

1) it must be warm.
2) it must be knee length or above (people who run up and down subway stairs will understand this)
3) it must either button or, if it has a zipper, must have a double zipper so it doesn't interfere with running up and down subway stairs
4) it must be a reasonably subdued color and style, not something neon-fuschia designed by someone on ecstasy
5) it must have an attached hood. Not a button-on or zip-on hood, but one that is permanently attached.

It's the last one that's the problem. The saleswomen beam at me during requirements 1 through 4, then panic when I explain that number 5 is the deal-breaker.

So I came home with this:

You'll notice it cost a lot of money. I'm willing to pay for something that meets my specifications.
