Does anybody have experience with the Nicolas polo coat? Is it cut large enough to be worn over a jacket or suit? It seems rather slim in the chest and shoulder based on the measurements, but I don't have much intuition about coat measurements...

Clicking Thearly didn't you buy one last year?

Yes I do indeed have the Nicolas coat. As it was basically named after me I kind of had to buy it.

I have worn it over a suit/jacket before.

I can't recall if I've said this before, but I actually find I wear the Nicolas coat more casually than say with a jacket or suit. I've worn the Nisse more with a suit.

I am a 48 in B&B (although I have just ordered some more Antons in a 50 much to my surprise... winter weight..) so the coat I have is a 48. If you would like me to I can lay it flat and take some measurements for you if it would help; just let me know

With 30 % off their grenadines are probably the best value grenadines within europe.
Too bad the don't deduct VAT. Really irks me that they fleece non-EU customers and keep the cash for themselves. Not interested in paying twice the tax.

Agreed. I can’t bring myself to order anything until they rectify this issue. But it’s been at least a year since I initially complained with no changes.

I just find it all very distasteful, particularly because, if memory serves, someone here was told the issue was due to their web store setup (or something along those lines) and was being worked on, as you mention above.
Kinda icky to go from "we're working on it" to "deal with it." One assumes it isn't hurting their business, but it leaves such a sour taste for me.
