Very nice Michael. What made you go for a 8x3 configuration instead of the classic 6x2?

That's a beautiful coat. The shoulders are quite nice, and I love the lapels.

I didn't know Polo did bespoke/MTM. I didn't think they actually had any clothing factories, to be honest.

Nevertheless, that's an absolutely gorgeous coat! I love the way the patch pockets look with the light colored material.

Alden is referring to Polo as a style of coat. He is not talking of the RL Polo brand. I'm guessing he had that made bespoke in Sicily.

Great coat, Michael. You always look dapper, however, except in a kimono.

Love it.

A polo coat is just perfect for cold winter weekends.

I thought a SB would probably look really good.

I love that classic style. Very nice!

My other favorite polo coat is one that is rarely seen these days but was common in the 30's + 40's. It's a SB navy coat, with a tie belt and no buttons. The belt gives it a bit of 'sportiness". If I wore an overcoat very often that would be my bespoke polo coat.

Very nice.

Did you decide against a breast pocket? Or is that the traditional way to do a Polo?

Absolutely fabulous, Michael. I'm desperately in need of a DB topcoat in camel. Well done!
