Looks great, all though I prefer my coats more slouchy and with belts.

I hate, hate, hate short coats. Must go past the knee for me.

Wearing mine (above/at the knee) today. Could not imagine wearing something that heavy and long, I'd be sweating like crazy.

was the mirror flat against a wall or tilted back a little bit? You look incredibly tall in the picture.

Tried to brush it up a little (hope you don't mind, Manton):

Jesus ... I can't see a damn thing.

I spoke too soon ... had not gotten to this page ... and lightened photos.

It's actually not too warm but wearing it is kind of a workout.

400-500gms is as high as I can go. You wear a warm suit under it?

Looks nice Manton. But given the photos ... I feel as if I'm looking at a Magritte.

I did today. I have a rather windswept walk to the train.

Actually, I was quite comfortable in it on the train. I assume I will get used to the weight.

I think you will; and then you will wonder how you managed on cold days without it. At least, I feel that way about my heaviest long overcoat. I like (what I can see of) it especially the good length, but do you think the sleeves should be lengthened a smidgen? I personally like the coat sleeve to be long enough to stay over the top of the glove bottom in most positions. I mean, if it's cold enough for a proper heavy overcoat, you're not going to want exposed wrists.
