I received my Chester Barrie cashmere overcoat from yoox today. Very nice and a great price! There's still a light brown cashmere overcoat in size 44 for cheap: The description says 100% wool but if you zoom into the tag on the left arm it says 100% cashmere. This is the coat I got and I can confirm that it is in fact 100% cashmere.

It looks like your suit was once owned by a Mr. Luc Patry. You could look him up and give him a call and ask why he no longer has the suit. Maybe he's dead and his estate was liquidated.
It's made by Coppley. At least it is if I read the CA number correctly. CA00750 right?
I've taken my leathers to Marta's Alterations near Leslie and Sheppard with good results. I haven't asked for alterations as extensive as yours though.

It had moved to the mall location identified above. It was a complete waste of about 3 hours. Yeah, that has been gone for a couple years now. It was a real outlet that was...
