The coat collar thing here has really reached ridiculous proportions. you are not suppose to be able to do the locust yoga pose and have the collar stuck to your neck.[/quote] I highly recommend that you watch a clip from the musical "The Band Wagon". starring Fred Astaire. It can be found on YouTube under the title "Steppin' out with my baby" Fred Astaire (I'm sorry I do not know how to post the link.) This has the justly famous slow motion sequence towards the end of...
Blazer buttons are uniform and ornamental. No surgeon ever wore one. And it looks terrible, from my pre-SF experience.[/quote] I disagree.

I suggest that you take the coat to a furrier if you cannot determine whether the collar is real fur or not, or if so, what kind. I would want to see that in an Ebay listing. A skilled tailor can tell you if the fur collar can be removed without much difficulty or not.

Vince of Artona (store name) on Mack Avenue in Grosse Pointe would be a good choice. Vince is a highly skilled tailor and very pleasant to talk to. If you saw the movie Gran Torino, Vince appeared as the tailor who fits Eastwood's in a suit. The scene was shot in Vince's store.

This, however, is excellent advice. +1. Also, a cummerbund gives a longer and more...
