That's a winter coat though, isn't it. The Raf and Margiela I posted are spring, and to be had on sale right now. (Not that I needed another ss coat any more than another fw one of course.)Btw I think Geller is almost an America-only operation. His Web site has not a single EU stockist. If it weren't for SF, I'm not sure I'd ever have come across the name otherwise.It's exactly the length that appeals to me. Although I admit I'm not sure how wearable/practical a coat that...
I'm probably not going to buy either, but curious what others think of these: I tried the black version of the fishtail on in store, and it looked great IRL, but I sure wasn't going to part with 1.8k(!) for what's essentially still a fairly plain cotton parka. Now the black one has sold out everywhere and I'm not sure what a snow-white coat will look like when it's been worn one season (or even five or ten seasons...).
+1. The wrinkly areas on your Butteros, @ike_hiking_boots, look exactly like the leather of my CP Achilles after a few weeks of wear.I am a little shocked though at all the bad experience people here have had with Buttero. I guess it's not so bad then the pair I was watching on Yoox sold out a few days ago. So far I only have a pair of woven-leather slip-ons, but haven't worn them a lot so too early to say.Does Buttero still make Dior Homme these days? I have a pair of DH...
I also have the denim (fw14) version. It's a nice coat. Didn't know there was a ss version.The denim one can be had in a size small on yoox atm:http://www.yoox.com/us/41631466HR/item#dept=men&sts=sr_men80&cod10=41631466HR&sizeId=4and in a size large on rayonfrais, but I can't link to it, you need to sign up to get access to their outlet.

I feel for you @jsd642, that sucks. So all that talk about "we help you out when PayPal doesn't" was just empty advertising. Probably they needed to have some ostensible new benefits to present when they introduced seller's fees. So basically the burden of proof is always on the seller, and selling history and feedback account for nothing...
I love elongated shirts but I think that a) elongated shirts come in versions a lot more elongated than that one (depends on body height I guess) and b) the triple collar looks kinda silly to me.
I'm not sure I am following you here. You seem to be criticising that there are barriers in the EU to harmonisation, i.e. not enough harmonisation? I thought it was EU legal-framework harmonisation that prompted people to vote leave, so the UK could make its legislation on its own?As for there being "no EU passport", I don't know. All the nationally-issued passports I have seen say "EUROPEAN UNION" in fat letters on the cover and will give access to EU-wide visa- and...
Vodafone Germany has just started offering free EU-wide roaming for calls and data services, including for pay-as-you-go users. Starting from 9.99 euros,will buy you a month of EU-wide calls, messages and data. I actually think that this nicely illustrated how the EU's image problem is less to do with alienation from or arrogance of its political leaders, than that people take for granted what it achieves for them (but of course blame it for what doesn't work). Do you...
man it's hard to follow this discussion without getting drawn into it. I don't think leave voters are stupid, nor do I think of them as caricatures. I'm sure they are real people with real concerns, just as anybody else who voted in the referendum. What I do think is that a fair share of those who voted leave were brainwashed into doing so by two big leave-campaign lies: - EU legislation is made by unelected officials, and - there is a conspiracy against democracy by...
