I've been hunting for an overcoat and this caught my eye at STP. Any views on AB quality (made in China)? Will fit be slim, full, or middle of the road? And, what impact will 15% mink/85% cashmere have - will it make it furry (seriously, will it have a typical hard wool look/feel or will it be furry/fuzzy)? How about weight - heavier or lighter than 100% cashmere? Warmth?
Appreciate any reactions.
Thanks

I have a coat with the same mix and it wears similar to all my other wool, wool/cashmere, and cashmere coats safe for it has a softer hand and a more "hairlike" texture to my eye. Beyond that I find 15% of anything rarely makes much difference in warmth for an overcoat to the point where I'd notice it. It appears very full cut and I suspect the armholes are really big...but then most Brandt has been in my experience.

hi
the mink content of the fabric will make the coat feel far softer, give it a sheen similar to a pure cashmere and make it a far warmer coat generally. Its a wonderful addition the to mix as it will really aid the wool. Regarding the fit, without doubt a full cut coat.
