Been the beneficiary of much knowledge and insight in this forum for a while and thought I'd come out of my shell to ask a question. I've been looking for a good overcoat that will look professional in a professional/work environment and still try and keep me in warm in cold weather. After much searching, I've managed to find a good looking cashmere overcoat from Louis Vuitton, 2 button, single breasted, black coat. Definitely no buyer's remorse as I think it serves it's purpose very very well and looks pretty sharp too.
The question I have and just out of curiosity is what is the general opinion on the construction of LV's "tailor made" products (suits, jackets, coats, etc.). Who do they outsource the manufacturing to? I noticed that the lapel buttonhole is similar to that of Tom Ford's, not sure what it's called but it's like a "smooth" thread. The coat looks very well made and would recommend it to anyone.
