Just in time for autumn and cozy enough for winter layering, this recently-dropped Double Breasted Coat from Madewell is that definitively classic and seamlessly versatile outerwear piece we're always scoping for. In plush, double-faced melton, this is a topcoat that makes a pretty good blazer and lends just enough room for layering. Available in Classic Desert (our pick), Bright Poppy, and Smoky Spruce below.

There’s an incident from early on in Elton John’s career that reminds us how peculiar it has been. The year was 1970. John’s first album, Empty Sky, had been released in the U.K. but had gone nowhere. His label, supportive of him in fits and starts, eventually laid out for a decent producer and some lush orchestrations for his second album, which was self-titled and came out that spring. Today, we know Elton John as a lasting and flamboyant star; put that aside for right now and remember that back then, no one was thinking in those terms about the plainly talented but pudgy and somewhat morose 22-year-old they were working with at the time. The first single from Elton John, “Border Song,” was a flop. The label’s next move, for some reason, was to dig out a non-album track and release it as the second single, hoping to garner more attention that way. That release, “Rock and Roll Madonna,” went nowhere, either. The label went back to the album, poked around some more, and made a third try, with “Take Me to the Pilot.”
