I can't recall the name of the tailor but there's a fantastic one in the little "plaza" that has the LV store near it on Bloor. Somewhere around Avenue and Bloor.

I have a coat with the same mix and it wears similar to all my other wool, wool/cashmere, and cashmere coats safe for it has a softer hand and a more "hairlike" texture to my eye. Beyond that I find 15% of anything rarely makes much difference in warmth for an overcoat to the point where I'd notice it. It appears very full cut and I suspect the armholes are really big...but then most Brandt has been in my experience.
I work for a major international clothing and lifestyle company and I still get trouble from my boss specifically about my pocket squares. In fact, the truth is I am the only one who actually wears them. I also used to get hassled for my rather colourful sock collection but both have become accepted by most of my coworkers.
