I understand your love for that coat, especially since you had it custom made for you. But I don't think you can wear it without looking like a pimp or gangsta rapper. I would suggest you: -Sell it on eBay for a good amount of money, or -Save it in your closet and hope fur becomes fashionable for men again (unlikely for some time), or -This: Quote: Originally Posted by maomao1980 Use it to make lining for a bespoke overcoat.

They're what C&J call "antique nubuck", which seems to be some polished up version of nubuck. I was hoping someone here had some hands on experience with it.
I'm considering getting myself a pair of C&J Tetbury chukkas in brown antique nubuck: Mmmm. I am, however, unfamiliar with C&J nubuck - does anyone have a pair of shoes made in this type of leather? How does it hold up over time? Any unattractive creasing? Also, in the pictures, this type of nubuck looks very similar to calf leather. Does it polish up well?
The comments below that article were truly rofl:ish.
I think the US has "it" right in many ways. Minus the religious extremism.
I'm trying to find a european store that carries Marcoliani socks. Howard Yount has a great selection, but unfortunately the added VAT when importing to Europe makes them a bit too pricey. Until I find one, I use Falke socks, which are also great.

Does anyone know if you can get a composite (rubber) sole brass screwed? I seem to remember someone getting one by mistake...

A bit off topic, but I find it interesting that all Germanic languages except English use variations on the same word - Czar, Kaiser, Kejsare, etc. to describe the ruler of an empire. English uses the latin word "emperor". Wonder if you got that from the French. Don't mind me. Carry on.
