Like black Dansko clogs and snail-eye patches, quite a few Strategist editors have a thing for chore coats. (The other day, two editors showed up in nearly identical Bill Cunningham–style, vintage workmen’s jackets and black jeans and it was a whole funny thing.) They’re perfect for wearing around an office like ours (casual but not shorts-and-tank-top casual) because they’re not as formal as a blazer and not as blah as a classic work cardigan. Plus, they often have deep pockets for toting around phones and notebooks from meeting to meeting. This one, from French Connection, comes in a very nice shade of dark blue and is currently (a whopping) 72 percent off. Note: There’s a similar one on sale right now for $30 at Urban Outfitters.
