I wouldn't buy this coat

I have bought Banana Republic coats in the past. They are beautiful, well tailored and appear to be well made.
They are not.
Well, let me put that differently: their lining is shoddy, not the entire coat.
I have bought two $200 winter coats in the past four or five years from Banana. Both have fallen apart from the inside out: pockets ripping into shreds, lining seams splitting down the center, you name it.
This coat is marked down to $299 from almost $500. I can assure you it's not a good deal.
