The Find: a coat to make you look as dapper as the Ikea monkey

Monkey see, monkey doIf there’s a lesson to be learned from the Internet’s love affair with the rhesus macaque snapped scampering around an Ikea parking lot yesterday afternoon, it’s this: nothing will endear you to others more than wearing a chic shearling coat. (It helps, of course, if you’re also less than 25 inches tall and furry.) That’s one of the reasons we love this tan faux-shearling parka from A.P.C. With inset pockets and a concealed zipper, it’s a more streamlined garment than the double-breasted coat worn by the parking lot primate, but the idea is still the same: stylish wear for weekend errands, because you never know who might be watching. On sale for $640. Buy it now »
