this sounds interesting, off to RFT!
darn looks like no ToJ hoodcoat hopefully a really nice minimalist-ish wool coat kind of deal will be in the winter lineup though
Drew do you have any source for decent wools? I think if I were in your position I'd be trying to design a waist-length or possibly 3/4-length late fall/winter wool bomber/car coat, something less formal than the chesterfield, less "winter in Alaska" than the fishtail, and a little more unique than the peacoat.
I have a black wool V. Branquinho bomber that I could wear forever - it fits in the same spot stylistically as I imagine a lot of the ToJ jackets do (minus the DRs), but it's warm enough for all but the coldest days.
