    That's what the MTO event was for :) maybe next winter will provide more opportunities.

    I own two of the LBM casentino coats from last F/W. I'm not sure if they are exactly the same fit as the ones from this F/W, so I'll just comment on the warmth. I found it to handle Minnesota winter just fine as long as I have a layer such as a cardigan, sweater, or shirt jacket between it and my shirt. I thought it was very warm worn that way and the two coats got me through a lot of last winter, which I think was one of the coldest on record for Minnesota. I like them a lot and they are still the coats I reach for the most this winter.

    Unless you're in a very cold climate, I would not worry too much about the weight differential, especially if you are properly layered.

    Camel casentino is a much more casual coat, so consider that when deciding which one to wear. Personally I like having the casentino for wear in more casual settings and then having something a bit more formal to wear over jacket and tie ensembles. Others may have different thoughts on this.

    I'm about 5ft7 and am a slim 40S and perhaps a true 39S. In NMWA clothes, I would be a 50 in Cantarelli and a 48S in Formosa.

    The casentino in 50 is definitely snug and works fine over a shirt and sweaters that are not too thick, but does not fit over most of my F/W odd jackets. I managed to get it over (fits very snug) a navy blazer with a natural almost unpadded shoulder, but that was even a bit tough. Unless you're wearing the coat over really thick tweed jackets, you probably will be able to wear it over a jacket too. It will probably be a bit snug but doable. Without a jacket, the coat will be less snug if you size up from your normal size (which you should) but I don't think you have to worry about it fitting like a tent.

    So I finally got one of the high(er) end Inglese shirts. This thing is really, really just nuts. The shirts certainly are not inexpensive, but having handled Kiton, Finamore, Barba, etc., it really, really blows them all out of the water. I am exceedingly impressed.

    Faux shearling/fur actually - but yes, the ranch coat is awesome

    Yes, it is a much better shirt in all objectivity (fabric quality, make, handwork) and it is incomparably better value.

    Greg, I hate to make one of these requests, but here goes.

    Considering the sizing is not the same across the board within categories, would it be possible to have the site allow you to check multiple selections within a single category when filtering results? That way, when I am looking for shirts, for example, I can check off 42,16.5/42, 17, L, XL..., in one shot, and that way I can see all the options in my potential size all at once. Decent request or silly?
