    Anyone own the BB Black Fleece chesterfield? I'm thinking of picking one up in gray.

    Is it warm?

    How's the fit/construction?

    Poodlerock - I just purchased a BF Chesterfield at the Chevy Chase BB for 75% off. Absolutely great coat and an amazing deal. The BB3 had nice waist suppression but was a tad tight across the shoulders with a suit on so I went to the BB4. I am having it taken in slightly.

    Definitely warm.

    Was this one of the Thom browne ones? I tried a few on and liked the look, but thought the shoulder was unreasonably small vs the body.

    Yes, one of the Thom Browne ones. The Chesterfield has the black velvet collar, if that rings any bells.

    I think I'm going to order one; could always return if it doesn't work out.

    that's the one. I rather liked it - and it was a great deal. Hope it fits.

    No, it has dark horn buttons, a dozen of them down the front.
