Burberry has its famous trench coat. Louis Vuitton has its iconic luggage. And Max Mara has its oh-so-recognizable Teddy Coat. Though it comes in a slew of different colors, the brown version is particularly sought-after by fashion’s elite—it consistently crops up in street style pics year after year. While I’m a huge fan of the posh Italian brand, there’s no denying that the $4000 price tag is inaccessible to most shoppers.
That’s where Mango comes in: The brand just debuted a $199 coat that reminds me of Max Mara’s Teddy Coat. Importantly, I don’t see this as a cheesy knockoff, but rather a coat with a similar vibe that has different details. As you can see in the photos, the Mango version is made with more of a shaggy, furry material while the Max Mara one has more of a traditional sherpa look.
