AC does a sample shirt in HK before making the shirts you order.
Thanks for the input. I'm going to go ahead with my idea and have a coat very similar to the first made.

I was trying to look for some SB that I like as much as the DB i posted and just couldn't find any. Found some other great looking DB though. ...

Thanks for the input so far. And I want to say the coat might be a RLPL but am not entirely sure. I just saved it to my desktop recently when searching for information about overcoats and didn't pay much attention to who actually made it.
I was hoping to get some input on what would be a great first overcoat (or really to confirm my decision). The primary purpose will be winter coat for NYC and I will be a mid 20's associate at a law firm. The coat is going to be in navy (not too dark though a really nice color of blue, JJ Minnis Melton 100% Wool).

I just know that you can't take for granted that something you liked at Polo one year will be there the following year. Ok, I wonder when they will start coming out again. Still a little hot but hoping that they will be out soon enough for me to decide to purchase one or go bespoke. I have never paid attention either. Always lived where it was hot and this...

From the front, it looked bespoke. Thanks, I noticed online that O'Connells sellls one too (I think that is in Buffalo). Have you ever noticed if they change much season to season? I've seen a few recent photos of Polo's version (I'm assuming it was...
