    Yes, I agree. I have a tan leather more casual belt (not tubo) from the same maker but I will add lighter colors for spring

    Thanks aj_del ! It's around the $2k mark including US shipping.


    You're welcome!


    Some are heavier than others (like the charcoal one) but none is very heavy. They are also 1/4 lined.

    The (more casual) casentino coats are thicker and warmer.

    Yes, these are in the cards for spring/summer, in addition to lighter fabric ones.

    Are the casentino coats some of the ones pictured here? They look lighter than the polo coats.

    And three simple wool sweaters with reversed seams


    No casentino coats in the link you provided. You can see the weight and texture of the casentino coat on this pic and that one (we're not carrying the duffle coat - was too short for my taste)

    Greg -
    How would you compare the fit in the body and the length of the Esemplare bomber and the Valstars?

    My wallet just ripped while I was trying to take out a credit card. This may be a sign.

    Reasonably similar but everyone needs to size up in Esemplare. The biggest differences are the material, zipper under the buttons for the Esemplare and shawl collar vs. 2-button standing collar. Lining will also make a difference - the Vastar will be warmer with the wool lining.

    in terms of fit, a 52 in Valstar fits me about the same as an XL in Esemplare but the armholes and sleeves are a tad slimmer in Esemplare, and a tad longer as well.

    Body length is about the same - hits right below the belt

    The shape of the last one is the best.
