The Water Resistant Trench Coat
Our take on a classic wardrobe staple. Water-resistant fabric, discrete magnetic closures, and a waterfall style collar.
The Three Piece Overcoat
Our most versatile coat. This modular coat can be worn a variety of ways. Comprised of three pieces. One straight overcoat, one double breast military style vest, one detachable cheetah collar. Wear all the pieces together or as seperates.
In 2014, designer Liz Williams checked her chic, hand-made, winter coat at Fulton Market Kitchen. The attendant remarked that she loved the coat and had been looking for something just like it. Liz graciously thanked her and mentioned that she made the coat by hand. The next day, Liz discovered a note from the attendant in her coat pocket, "Interested Buyer," further encouraging Liz to launch her women's outerwear line, Coat Check Chicago.
