Wow, I've been spending way too much time on here with the flood of recent posts. In regards to your question on the LP coat, please visit your nearest Loro Piana boutique or fine menswear store and check out the real deal. I hope I don't come across as a condescending a$$, but I think its important to go through the self-education aspect of men's clothing before trying to score off Ebay. First of all, the label is strictly for LP fabric. I assume that the cloth is probably a very basic wool (the 50% cashmere blend is sketchy). Even if this was a third-party manufacturer, <$400 for the Stormguard wool would be a bargain in materials alone. Secondly, look at the detailing on this coat. I would be shocked to see an exposed button on an inner pocket from an authentic LP overcoat. The buttons themselves look to be of extremely poor quality--cheap plastic. I would bet $50 that the stiching around the sleeves is machine-made and less than a refined piece of worksmanship. Lastly, European sellers have a dubious reputation on Ebay.
