We were discussing in an older peacoat thread the level of workmanship that is evident in the old military coats, and how much a similar one would cost to make in today's dollars. That figure doesn't surprise me at all, really.
Has anyone tried someone like Ravi or one of the other Asian tailors for a coat? Maybe one of them could do it. I don't know if they will have 32oz. wool on hand in Hong Kong, though...
