It's a longer version of a Pea Coat. Definitely military inspired. Fits okay but those roped shoulders look kind of extreme--they are sticking up pretty high. BUT, since it was a gift, be gracious and wear it, even if a little. That's kind of a policy I have unless the fit is way off, and this one is not by any means.
1. Sue in small claims court. 2. Find a new cleaner. 3. Always assume a dry cleaner will wreck a tie. I have read about an outfit called "Tiecrafters" that is supposed to be good. I think they have a minimum of 3 ties. Personally, I tuck my tie into my shirt whenever I eat. If it gets stained, I assume it's shot.
Okay, guys, heads up: this coat is a fabulous coat at an even more fabulous price and from a great seller who was a pleasure to deal with. I know because I bought a similar camel Polo from this seller. And as for fit, the coat I bought was a 46R and, as promised, it fit my 44R size with a suit on to a "T". I can't believe someone has not snagged this. I would pick it up myself but my coat closet is busting to the seams. I know this site is not replete with guys who...
Brother in law had an AMG, bought used with more miles--not sure of the exact model. Said every trip to the dealer was a minimum of a grand. But if it's CPO and you have a good warranty, give it a shot and just remember to unload before the warranty is up. It's a hot-shit car!
Check out the real "aviators" offered by American Optical, available in any good Army/Navy store for $50 and J Peterman for a little more. Good enough for USAF fighter pilots, good enough for me. Sunglasses are such bullshit and these do the job perfectly. I could kill my boys for what they spend on sunglasses but plead guilty to enabling.

The Omega is so much cheaper and for scuba don't you need a "watch" that is actually a dive computer, like the Tusa, for around $400? My 19-year old just got certified and the instructor said it was essential. And as for the Omega, I prefer the Seamaster Pro. The "Speed" reminds me of space and I prefer the dive look and bracelet of the SMP.
That's because it is. They try to lure in guys on a budget (or cheap guys) shirt deals, like 4 for $99 but their shirts are shit. A friend of mine bought some, so I am telling you from experience. Their ties are generally hideous.. okay, enough.
If you're actually poor, I think the SMP is just fine and no need to "upgrade" to the PO for another G. It's a lovely watch, but I think what you've got (I have one myself although on the bracelet you see on the PO, which I definitely prefer) is a great watch.
