The "James" is a new coat from Vaute Couture; a warm Motorcycle jacket constructed in New York City's Fashion District available in gray, black or in black waxed canvas.

The Vaute Couture Tour launches this week- they're taking appointments to see and preorder new coats and purchase sample sale pieces at special prices in Brooklyn, DC, Philly, New Haven, and Cambridge. Coming also this fall to Canada, Chicago, Dallas, and the West Coast.

Preorders for this new style begin today, Wednesday Sept 5th, 2012. Get 50% off for the first 24 hours, 45% off for the 1st week. The previously sold-out Vaute Couture classics - the Mens Pea, Whitman, and Joaquin in black - will be offered in two new colors: gray and bark brown. (BONUS! Bring in a pregan coat and get an additional $25 off a preordered coat, or $50 off a sample sale coat, not to be used 1st week of preorders.)

All Vaute Couture coats combine high technology sustainable (recyclable and recycled fabrics of closed loop zero waste processes) fabrics with special construction and finishes to create an innovation in outerwear: the marriage of technical fabrics in a dress coat.
