That is an awesome coat, enjoy it.

There is a break 0.6" past the last / second belt look going towards the right in this image on the green belt.
Spoo, this is a gorgeous belt and quite nice. I'm glad that you have it. Enjoy.
Next time, send me a candle.

That fuse point at the end is going to be cut off anyway to shorten the belt as it is too long.

Hate to break it to you, but you are all wrong. The belt is ENTIRELY SEAMLESS there are no breaks or fuse points at all. Its a perfect whole cut. Below you will find photos that will hopefully better dispel any speculation, and I remain available to further clarify with, and not limited to the following :
- more photos
- high definition video
- 3D scans
- MRI's
- Notarized letters



The belt (and while this is pure speculation, might further assist you in making determinations based on internet imagery) is made of an animal who was of great importance in his social subset. This magnificent beast was raised in the finest farms, held in regard amongst his peers for having amazing tiles (similar to having good hair, I suppose), full of depth and texture, full of gloss. He was the product of two outstanding parents, beasts extending past 16 feet in nature. Their sex was magical to create such a perfect animal, and the Gods cried at the birth of this beast. When his moment of surrender came at the hands of the people paid by Avi Rossini, this beast took his prehistoric hand and saluted the hand that slayed him, ready to adorn my waist. He knew that a battle against online speculation was about to ensue regarding his tile placement, and stretched out his limbs before his captors, and accepted his fate willingly. With a gimmer in his eye and a note tucked inbetween his black claws, he went quietly in to that goodnight. After succumbing to his wounds (not a gunshot or a knife wound, god forbid! To damage the tiles would be such a travesty - he was given a potent combination of barbituates and bourbon) he was carefully carved while his captors sang Cumbayah and prayed. On the table where he lay, the note was opened and unfolded. The leathermakers read it aloud and it said:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
"Do not make me a fucking belt with seams"

Hope that helps clarify.

Works pretty decently, don't know if it can achieve a mirror finish. The two buffers are fur.

Been eyeing a Loro Piana Traveller parka for a while, but even with a discount it would have been c. $ 3.500...and there's a blue flannel Pal Zileri suit I'm eyeing as well.

So I hit the sales looking for a cheaper alternative to LP - something in navy wool with a fur-lined hood.

The most popular choice in Finland and Sweden for this kind of a coat is Canada Goose. Don't like their too-visible logo, but had a look anyway.

And found this.



Unlike in most of their wares, the logo is very discreet in black leather.

And there's was an interesting twist: it's made of LP Storm System Zelander wool.



This will have to do till I'm promoted.

That looks like a nice pick-up as is - I wouldn't sweat the Traveller a bit if I had this as the stand-in.

Nice coat, but the logo would still annoy the hell out of me.
But definitely better than the rest of the CG coats, so congratulations on the find and I would forget about the LP coat.

Nice james it's a warm jacket. But you also have woolrich that are pretty great. No logos or anything on :)
