Has anyone seen this? What are your thoughts? I tried it on in the store today, but the fit was slightly off. I was skeptical that it was truly unisex (I'm a guy), but it looked good enough. Can anyone recommend something similar from other designers? What I really like is the sherpa lining.

A is allowed to sell things over $100 (or pounds or whatever currency)?

i don't like it. it says unisex, but because of the length/cutoff i think it looks much better on a girl than a guy, cause the cutoff is like a sort of skirt. and towards the end, it gets a little bit wider, just a little bit, which doesnt make it look very masculine.

i'm not a big fan of coats in general.

I tried one of the coats. I'm 5' 7" slender build so I tried on the XS and the sleeves were too short and the S was perfect length but the fit was off.

The price of the coat is obscene too. Not worth it.

Yeah, I tried it on again yesterday and agree with everything said. I also remembered how much I hate AA while in the store.

Are there any similar coats out on the market?

the new aa near fit is selling lots of vintage stuff. weird.

anyway, for the price, i would say it's worth a shot.

I tried one of the coats on yesterday, XS was too small and the S had to long sleeves. The prize was too much considering I would need a tailor to custom fit it. I really liked that coat though. If anyone find any similiar coats please let me know.


(I stumbled up on a group buy of the same coat online http://www.teambuy.ca/fr/laval/28135392 but the offer has already expired, would have been a great buy for 100$)
