If there's a choice between a black tie dress or a coat, I will always go for the coat. Coats are fantastic for pulling a look together and giving your presentation a gloss of sophistication.
This coat or extra long vest is constructed of vintage military gear from around the globe. It is the design of BK Phillips of Los Angeles, who is a true original.
I'm a big advocate of buying one "piece" each season that punctuates your entire style vocabulary. When I saw this vest, it was a pure coup de foudre or "lightning strikes."
