There's an eBay seller, Nitr-o
, who specializes in Isaia and from whom I purchased a very nice brand-new cashmere-blend Gianluca overcoat last winter at a very good price, $400+ if I remember correctly. (Gianluca is the lower-priced Isaia line.) The purchase was a really good eBay experience all around, and this seller, Pete, always has a lot of Isaia garments at what appear to be great prices. Pete also describes his offerings in a lot of detail (just screen out the hyperbole, which is a trifle..,exuberant!), and you'll find Isaia suits, trousers, and shirts too--again at good prices. Below is a link to the Isaia overcoats he has at the moment. I imagine that his supply will increase greatly as we approach autumn.http://stores.ebay.com/Nitr-o-Satori...QQftidZ2QQtZkm
Incidentally, I too would advise against black. I went with a navy coat, which I consider far more appealing and versatile.Edit:
Just looked at the STP coat. I'd think carefully about what's basically a knee-length (at best) coat, or 3/4-length. To my eye, they're a little off. They look too casual to work in most situations I need an overcoat. My strong preference is for a full-length coat--which means about 47" to 48" from bottom of collar at back. However, if you want a 3/4-length coat, lots are available.
OK. Jeez, Roger, get with the program. Just saw the second one now. Much better, but the red collar is a big turn-off, and you can do better pricewise on eBay. Also, I don't care for pinstripes on overcoats, but that's probably just me.
