Leroy Powell tried to play policeman and track down the person who stole his leather jacket in 1989. Powell, 19, of Upland Street near 61st, was shot and killed on Dec. 23, 1989, shortly after he traced the stolen coat to a home on Napa Street near Dickinson, South Philadelphia. Assistant District Attorney Eliot Present said Powell and Powell's uncle, Curtis Tucker, 32, went to the home and confronted Van Hall, 20, who lived there. Hall admitted the coat was inside, but said he bought it from another man. He gave it to Powell.

It was fire-engine red - can't-be-missed red - and the fabric was nubby. It was what the beautiful Jackie Kennedy wore in the photo I memorized. I had to have that coat, and so did everyone else. So there we were, legions of suburban women decked out in Jackie knock-offs. Some were even brave enough to add a pillbox hat, a la Jackie. I was not. But how I loved that coat! I wore it everywhere I could through two winters. Still, that first grown-up coat of mine was definitely a far cry from the real thing, as evidenced by the way the lining ripped, the buttons fell off, and that nubby fabric that looked so fabulous grew fuzzy and frayed.

IT TAKES A lot of minks to make a coat, but it only takes one Lindsay Lohan to take a coat. In another bizarre twist in the soap opera that is Lindsay, the New York Post reported yesterday that Columbia University student Masha Markova believes that Lindsay "borrowed" her $11,000 blonde mink coat on Jan. 26, when both women attended an exclusive party at 1Oak in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. It was two weeks after Markova's coat "disappeared" that she saw a picture of Lindsay wearing the coat in OK!

The fitted-through-the-bodice, navy-blue coat that first lady Michelle Obama wore to Monday's inaugural ceremonies was a work of art. And we can thank Allentown-bred designer Thom Browne for the expertly tailored, perfectly darted custom piece of outerwear. "It's overwhelming," the 48-year-old designer said in an interview with the New York Times from Paris, where he showed his latest men's collection Sunday. "It is one of those rare moments in someone's career that you will always remember.

It was a beautiful, three-quarter-length sheet of tan sheepskin, with a hood and fur collar, a $700 gift that Darnell Cherry wore to school every day. But Cherry, 15, owned the coat for only a month. Late Tuesday night, he met someone who was willing to kill for it. Yesterday, on the gritty Southwest Philadelphia street where Cherry fell with a bullet in his back, his teenage friends wondered who would be next to die for their clothing.

At this week's Philadelphia Flower Show, it's up to the exhibitors to create good memories. Their tools: brilliant colors, fancy displays and delicate scents. But it's up to J&L Concessionaires to create good first and last impressions for visitors. Its tools: paper and twisted metal. Indeed, workers from the Berlin company - armed with 18,000 hangers, 150 coatracks and 40,000 coat check tickets - will greet and bid farewell to thousands at the Convention Center during the flower show.

You couldn't pay Chris Salazar to go out on a North Philadelphia roof Monday in the 90-degree heat. But he would do it free. Salazar, an executive for a New Jersey roof-coating manufacturer, and about two dozen other volunteers scaled 32-foot ladders Monday to apply reflective layers of acrylic to the roofs of 20 rowhouses, capping a major energy retrofit on the 1200 block of West Seltzer Street. Most of the volunteers were attending the four-day International Roof Coatings Conference, which opened Monday at the Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia.

THE NO. 1 COMPLAINT of pet owners is shedding, sometimes aptly referred to as "blowing coat. " And while you can reduce the risk of a "fur-nado" with regular brushing and other basic strategies, there's no magic solution to put an end to the hair flying around your home as dogs start to shed their winter coats and new hair comes in. The dirty little secret about dogs is that they all shed, but some more than others. Double-coated dogs - such as Alaskan malamutes, chow chows, Shetland sheepdogs and Siberian huskies - are the most obvious.

Tailgating and parking-lot culture are big parts of the Bruce Springsteen Experience. But that was an easier prospect when he stopped by Citizens Bank Park in 2012, and the summer sun was still shining. Now, we're in the dark days of February, and the idea of standing outside sipping a beer and chatting it up with your fellow Springsteen fan is considerably less appealing than when it was 75 degrees and sunny. Eagles fans may know what they're doing when it comes to hanging in a freezing-cold parking lot before a show, but not all Springsteen fans may be as in the know.

Traditionally, it's the women who are fashion adventurers. They are the ones to experiment with pleats in places they've never been folded before. They wear pastels in the winter, and their skirt length varies from day to day. But when a dude is ready to get his dandy on, watch out! The trendlet These days, men are looking smart in bold sports coats at artsy offices, at swank bars, and on first dates. Where do they come from?

For coat retailers, it's worse than a winter of discontent. It's one of deep discounts. The unseasonably warm weather and zero snow have left piles of unsold winter merchandise on stores' floors. While no one has tracked the overall losses, retail analysts say it's easily in the hundreds of millions of dollars for the year's last quarter, causing havoc at stores from Macy's to Burlington Coat Factory. All that red ink is a boon for consumers, though. This month, several retailers resorted to deep discounting of coats, which typically doesn't occur until February or March.

Manhattan doormen are famous for being completely discreet and non-judgmental. Somebody just needs to tell mine that. My doorman is totally judgmental. He's the most opinionated man I've ever met, and he never holds fire. He's a macho Dominican man who can throw drag-queen levels of shade. And I love him. You know how everyone needs that friend who tells it to you straight? He's mine. My girlfriends don't tell me the truth - they flatter me and build me up, and I love that about them.

The dark and vibrant best-seller Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates is part memoir, part jeremiad, and part prose poem, written to his son Samori about the world in which African Americans live, a world of constant threat to the African American body. Coates reads at the Free Library at 7:30 p.m. Friday. " 'White America' is a syndicate arrayed to protect its exclusive power to dominate and control our bodies," he writes. "Sometimes this power is direct (lynching), and sometimes it is insidious (redlining)
