    I am seeking:

    - a wool/cashmere overcoat
    - in navy, camel, grey, or an interesting pattern (essentially, "not black")
    - double or single breasted, doesn't matter
    - slim fit
    - mid-thigh length (so, no pea coats, and nothing that hits the knee)
    - with an interesting detail: an opulent collar, ideally fur (faux or real, doesn't matter, but none of that knotty shearling. a shiny, furry fur) but I've also seen nice coats with unique braided collar

    Not a fur hood, mind you, and I'm not seeking a coat where the fur carries through the lapels.

    I would buy this new or used, but I can't find anything, anywhere. It must exist. Help me find it.

    It exists. Try O'Connells Clothing at the other side of your State in Buffalo.
    Definitely trad in orientation but with a wide selection of RTW coats:

    Only one coat there with the badass fur collar (although I do like that full fur on the lapels).

    Anything else?

    Why not just have your sartor attach a fur collar to a regular coat? Should be easy-peasy.

    Don't go faux fur! Try the real stuff!
