Brilliant, just what I was looking for! Thanks.
I tried to search this thread, but couldn't find an answer to my question, so here it goes: the Balmoral boot on Carmina's Website is on the Forest last, but Skoaktiebolaget offers some versions of the Balmoral on the Robert last. So, what's the difference between the two lasts? I have a pair of suede Oxfords on the Robert last and they fit quite well. Will the Famous Balmoral boots (in leather) have a similar fit, or will the leather construction (and the fact it's a...
I think the shawl lapel DB is really cool and haven't seen too many examples. Personally, I'd skip the belt, though, since I thought the point of a wrap-around overcoat w/belt was to forgo the buttons.

Braddock, has this been finished? It looks like a double-breasted shawl lapel overcoat and I'm curious how it turned out.
I second the question. I'm also looking for a brown herringbone for an overcoat and was thinking about this one from Fox:http://www.themerchantfox.co.uk/prod/350/west-of-england-coating/fox-tonedale-herringboneI think the "bones" might be a bit too obvious and hence think the Harrisons might be more suitable.
