    Hey guys, I know this belongs in the buy/sell topic, but I'm not sure how many members actually take a look at that area, but feel free to move this after a day or so. I picked up a very nice Hickey-Freeman wool overcoat at a consignment shop recently. It was a bit big on me but I hoped that my tailor would be able to alter it. He wasn't able to. I thought I'd make it available to anyone on the forum who wants it at a low price. I'm asking $30 including shipping...basically almost what I have into it. It would be a perfect for someone who needs a 'backup' coat, someone looking for an inexpensive first time coat, or someone who wants a 'beater' to wear in the really nasty weather when you don't want to ruin your expensive one. The coat is dark gray as is woven (as best as I can explain it) in a diagonal pattern. Each sleeve has two buttons. The coat has three buttons down the front that are covered by a flap. Two flap pockets on the front. Single back vent (about 12") Exterior is in excellent condition, but near the inside of the collar the lining is starting to separate fron the coat. The coat is still perfectly wearable, and my tailor suggested that any tailor or skilled amateur sewer could repair this. Measurments: (my guess was that this is a 42R, but read below) Chest: 45" across, under arms Length: 40" from under collar to bottom of coat Shoulders: 19.5" from seam to seam Sleeves: 25" from shoulder seam to end of sleeve Let me know if you are interested, I'll post pictures soon. ekriebe@uwm.edu
