Let me tell you: I wear it all the time, and it still holds up. The printed cotton lining is a high thread count, which means that even though it's a khaki jacket, you stay plenty warm (and it's snuggly and smooth). The multiple pockets (there are six!) are great for compartimentalizing my chapstick, keys, and BART cards. The materials are good quality, but they're simple — so unlike most high-end clothes, you don't have to dry clean. It's fine if you ball it up and throw it into the washing machine w/ the rest of your Gap stuff.
My point is: the jacket is the perfect mix of aesthetic and practicality. It looks like it came out of somebody's storybook imagination, but it also holds up really well to the wear and tear of my daily life. I'd love to shop for another Trovata piece, but ....
Ever since the original group of designers disbanded and Whitledge was left holding the reins, I'm not a convert anymore. The designs are too simple, and while I don't know anything about the execution, it looks like most anything they're producing can be found at Uniqlo and Gap ... at much lower prices.
I'll keep an eye out for Trovata as this company evolves, but for the past there seasons, I've been really underwhelmed.
