Where’d You Get That?

Where’d You Get That? 7 Coats We’re Coveting

Introducing our new column in which we ask stylish New Yorkers “Hey, where’d you get that?” so you don’t have to.

There’s no other city filled with as many cool, stylish people—wearing (or holding or riding or otherwise rocking) cool, stylish things—as New York City. Forget fashion shows and magazines; most of us get our style inspiration from riding the subway (thankfully, the most stylish subway line, the L, is no longer shutting down) and walking the streets. But coveting the bangles someone is wearing and actually finding them for yourself are two different things. (Trust us, we’ve wasted hours Googling the “hot pink faux fur cloche” and “backpack with images of monsters on it” that we saw people sporting on the street.)

Our newest column aims to satisfy that style envy by asking fellow New Yorkers with stylish stuff—whether it’s a handbag or a haircut, a necklace or a scarf, a tattoo or a toque, or even just a striking shade of lipstick—”Hey, where’d you get that?” For our first edition, we headed to the East Village on a blustery December day, where we caught commuters warming up in lots of hot ways; who says fashion can’t be functional? So consider this our Where’d You Get That?: Coat Collection (with one exception for a fabulous pair of pants).
