It is really sad. I have a fond memory of my experience at their shop in '05 trying to find RTW shoes that fit. As I have posted numerous times, I am an extremely difficult fit. Nevertheless, a gentleman, who I believe was their late proprietor, spent maybe 45 minutes with me trying different models to no avail. I swore then that should time and MONEY permit, Balint would be my first choice in bespoke.
Are you an Outlander Addict?Spent two weeks in Scotland last September.One day included a private Outlander Tour at theinsistence of my wife who has read all the books and watchesthe program. Naturally, I side with the Hanoverians and the forcesof Order and Modernity. Long Live Whiggery !!

In my humble opinion, if one desires patch pockets (and I often do), Dustin or it's new name "Domenico" is the way to go. Very soft shoulder,...
No idea about authenticity. It looks like a "fashion" take on the classical duffle coat worn originally by British forces in World War 2. Definitely not a trench coat! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duffel_coat http://www.forumgarden.com/forums/attachments/films-cinema-forum/30021d1259508021-humphrey-bogart-image.axd-picture-2009-2f6-2fhumphrey-bogart.jpg
Never heard of them. From the website they look cheap.
It is called Prince of Wales or Glen Plaid. Not that it helps because this category is extremely broad: https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=prince+of+wales+plaid&qpvt=prince+of+wales+plaid&qpvt=prince+of+wales+plaid&qpvt=prince+of+wales+plaid&FORM=IGRE
Not a bad looking coat. I had no idea that proper cloth had outerwear. However, it doesn't look warm. If that is an issue, O'Connells has a wide selection of more trad but still informal...
