SOLD.
I think it was the original poster who posted a close-up of the following BB polo coat: It's BB's new version of BB's old standby polo coat and to my eye it seems slightly too short, although the older version was arguably too long (almost a floor-sweeper). Is anyone familiar with the older versus new BB polo coats?
Their tassel loafers have a wonderful shape and those tassel loafers in tartan are particularly beautiful.
Filson customer service told me today via email that their bush jacket (#10051) has been discontinued, at least temporarily, although they didn't seem 100% certain. They did say they have a few sitting around so interested persons should call them and they might have your size.

I recently picked up two older safari jackets via eBay: one older Banana Republic (with number sizing) and a Tilley (long discontinued). The BR jacket is particularly nice and old ones in good shape show up on eBay quite regularly - strongly recommended.
Price drop to USD$150 (shipping to continental US and Canada included).
For sale one pair of Matthew Dack longwing brogues, size US 10.5D, in polished black calf. These are brand new and have never been worn, and are flawless. Made by Cheaney in the UK on their 2003 last. Sizing is US (not UK) and fit is similar to Alden Aberdeen in 10.5E or AE #7 in 10E, although the toe box is a bit longer than Alden or AE and overall quality is better in my opinion. These fit me okay, but my feet cannot bear to break in another pair of heavy shoes like...
