In the 3 seasons I have been buying RRL I have only missed out on one item (size L) I really wanted by waiting for the bigger discounted sale....even then I eventually got over it. JAT
About the peacoat - if I remember correctly, the previous one had horn buttons with the anchor surrounded by 13 stars. Is it just me or does switching to typical-looking peacoat buttons (gloss plastic with just the anchor) really knock it down a few notches and make it look cheaper?
(And to completely peacoat-nerd out, the 13-star ones match the pre-WWII coat it's modeled after...)
So in the description it says "Genuine 13-star engraved anchor buttons", but when you zoom in on the photo the buttons clearly look different from last years... Hopefully it's just the picture that's wrong. Anyone seen it in person yet to confirm?
