    I agree with the above impressions of the Casentino coat. The sleeves are so slim that sizing up likely will not fit an odd jacket underneath. (I bought my usual size, 50.) The coat was simply not designed for that. It's best to think of it (the DB version anyways) as a rakish alternative to the peacoat.

    The coat is beautiful and very warm. It fits well in the shoulders and the sleeves are the right length. It is a bit snug in the waist with a slim sweater. I'm going to have to test it with slightly thicker sweaters.

    Shipping was fast and the packaging is first-rate.

    Well, this is wearing mine over my most padded SC. Upper body feels packed solid, and sleeves are a bit short, so I'm giving the size-up a go. Hopefully the shoulder still fits. Thoughts?

    Should the size up be a bit too big, I will still keep the smaller one and have the sleeves let out. Unfortunately, they haven't done the weathered treatment (which is imho not at all over the top) to the inside, thus making lengthening a bit more difficult, but the moment I opened the bag and held the coat I fell in love with it - I will find a way!

    has anyone ordered the cashmere turtlenecks? Thoughts? I've been looking around for a black cashmere turtleneck but might go with the charcoal one since NMWA don't have a black one

    mezentius, aside from the short sleeves, i think that looks great.

    Yeah, I do love the look of it too, but I'm not sure if "packed solid" is how I should feel when wearing a coat. It isn't constrictively uncomfortable, in fact I may appreciate the snugness once in the cold, but it definitely is a bit difficult to put on, and is a bit restrictive on my movements. Of course, I have no prior experience with coats (having mainly lived in Australia, where I would get maybe one week's use a year out of such piece), so that might be what outerwear is supposed to be like?

    (And, of course, if the larger one fits better over my SCs it might save me a bit of trouble with weathering the sleeves)

    mezentius, i think its really just a matter of personal comfort and taking into account how often you will be actually wearing it over a SC as opposed to just over a shirt or a shirt and thin v-neck sweater.

    Mezentius-that's pretty much how I feel in the LBM polo. I feel a bit packed (slleves and armholes) with a jacket or suit. However, I don't particularly mind as my time in both is relatively short, plus it fits great with more casual rigs. If you are spending a lot of time in it with a jacket on, you may feel differently.

    That's actually kind of a cool pick. Sharp looking coat. My DB Mackintosh has led me to really understand the warmth value of having a tall collar standing up (be it a sweater or on the coat itself).
