Style is a large factor in the price paid for women's coats. Just what percentage of the cost of the garment goes to pay for style and what percentage pays for quality of fabric and workmanship is difficult to determine. The time that the purchase is made also affects the cost. Buying at the height of the season increases the price, particularly of style garments. Utility garments are not affected to such a great degree. Exclusiveness of design also affects the price. An attempt is here made to determine how the fabric varies with the differences in price, and whether there is a constant variance
