Drake's Bottle Green polo coat (looks suspiciously similar to the navy Caruso of IchDien above)

What is your opinion on dark green coats? I find the color quite versatile for casual use (goes with gray and brown trousers and jeans) but they are very rarely seen.

I really like that as a casual coat. Is it purchasable?

The Tumblr post says it is available at their shop in London. No info about the price though

Love it.

Also, Michael Alden republished his videos showcasing the beautiful Donegal Polo coat he had made. Both were taken down last year, but now seem to be up again. Really handsome stuff.

I think it was the original poster who posted a close-up of the following BB polo coat:



It's BB's new version of BB's old standby polo coat and to my eye it seems slightly too short, although the older version was arguably too long (almost a floor-sweeper). Is anyone familiar with the older versus new BB polo coats?

^If the common german troops in WWII had had something as warm as those coats looks to be, Stalingrad and the war could have had a different outcome. teacha.gif

Interesting point. In folklore about World War 1, about which I am no expert, there is little discussion of "General Winter".
The GermanArmy, along with their often faltering Austro-Hungarian allies, basically won World War 1 on the Eastern Front,
knocking Russia, under the bolsheviks , out of the War in early 1918. Hoffman's genius had a lot to do with this. He was also a key
negoiator with the Bosheviks at Brest Litovsk

By some bizarre coincidence I, as well as my 7 year old grandson, look like him, minus the cropped hair and the pince nez.
I am not nearly as tall either. My family background includes no Germans.

Just wanted to get people thoughts on pockets on overcoats and etc.

I noticed many of pics posted here have straight flap pockets, patch or otherwise. Forget about the style consideration for a sec, but do you find flap pockets useful? They would seem to be a pain to stuff our hands in compared side slit pockets.
