Baa Baa Black Sheep...

... Have you any wool? Remember that one? Well with the weather turning cold this week, we started pulling out our cold weather gear from the closet. Of course, this is also the time we realize who ate the most bacon the past year as we all try to squeeze back into last year's sizes. It's a losing battle.

So off to coat shopping we will be this weekend.

The girls and I? I think we can live with the trendy outlet mall selection. My husband, however, who only buys a coat every few years or so because he prefers to buy one with classic lines and won't be passe' next season, will probably be searching elsewhere for his coat.

I'm thinking he ought to check out Sanyo Fashion House as they specialize men's coats and would be a good place to start to look for mens wool coat, as my husband will probably be looking for. They also carry other types of outerwear and rain gear, but my husband has been talking about needing a dress coat so he'll probably go for the wool.

Oh, back to the name of the place, in case you're thinking I'm pointing him to Sanyo because they are the same people that produce all the electronics he's crazy about, then you're WRONG. There's more than one Sanyo in Japan, you know :-P. This fashion house happens to be named one of the largest garment manufacturers in Tokyo, Sanyo Shokai. Their coats are carried by major department stores here in the U.S. and can also be ordered directly from their website,
