Sawyer of Napa coat

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I just picked up a coat at a consignment shop for $95. It is a Sawyer of Napa suede coat with wool lining, horn buttons and a detachable hood. It looks like it was never worn. I found that Sawyer of Napa is made in the US but this says made in India. I was wondering what this might be worth. Also there is a little flap on the inside. I can't figure out its purpose. Does anyone know anything about this coat?

Are you sure it's not shearling? A lot of their stuff is and is quite pricy.

EDIT: Here's an old thread with a lot of info: http://www.styleforum.net/t/50655/sawyer-of-napa-shearling

Yes, it is shearling.

Any idea what the flap inside is for?

What do you mean by flap? It may be a pocket. Look for a zipper or opening hidden beneath the nap. Pics? And if it's shearling, the wool isn't lining. It's the other side of the hide on the outside. Very soft and basically a fur.

No, there isn't any lining. Wool on one side and suede on the other. There are two flaps, no zippers or anything. They look like they must be an added layer of wool.

It's worth about $95

Unless you can get someone to pay more than that, of course.

I was just wondering what kind of deal I got. I don't think I would sell it. The tag said it cost $750 new, and it seems hardly worn if worn at all. The replacement buttons are still in the pocket and there are no signs of wear at all. It was actually for sale at $200 but the store was having a 50% of sale. I was curious if the $750 was correct, but after looking up prices on the internet I believe it is. The whole coat is shearling, even the sleeves and hood.

Good deal. Wear it well.

Recognize that your appreciation of the coat is clouded by uncertainty about whether or not you paid a fair price for it. You don't have to live like that. If you continue to highly value "good deal" you will end up with a mountain of "good deal" clothing. Most of what you can get at a "good deal" price is stuff that nobody wanted, often for a good reason, which is why the item made it to "good deal" status. $20 for a brand-new $250 tie is not a good deal if the tie is ugly. Don't buy clothes to Win at Shopping.

$95 is a solid price to pay for a winter coat. Now forget about what you paid and evaluate whether it not it fits your body, your lifestyle, your needs, your wishes, etc. etc.
