Trouble is that that it's like posting about somebody's peacoat and saying "x had a coat just like that" and posting a guy in a DB tuxedo. Yes, there are some surface similarities, but the garments are nothing alike. Lincoln's favorite overcoat was given to him as a gift by Brooks Brothers, made out of an ultrafine wool, was single breasted. It's also the same one he wore to Ford's theater that there have been debates over the display of. But as he favored black suits, SF is free to ignore examples he might have set.
