That's fair! I was also looking for a rain coat, and the Nisse seems nice, but so does Trunk's Cavendish...spoiled for choices at the moment it seems.I didn’t pick anything up this time around, I looked at the western shirt for a while, but I’ve tried it twice before and it just doesn’t seem to work for me still doesn’t stop me thinking “but maybe this time..”
I have the grey herringbone Nisse from their first iteration and I really like it. My only complaint would be to have a slightly larger collar, which I think they addressed in their updated fit last year

I like the liner too! Seems that might make it more wearable when it’s slightly colder. It’s slightly shorter though, but I guess not being that tall the length of the Nisse may not be flattering.I wasn’t aware of the trunks model but it does look kind of nice, I like the idea of a removable liner too..
I have one of their field jackets and the fabric they used is really nice, like a water repellent cotton and water just falls off it. I imagine they’ve used something similar for the raincoat
That's good to hear! Do you have any experience as to how it compares to the Nisse? I picked a 48 in Cavendish, with a 40 inch chest at 175cm. I thought about sizing up but was in part concerned about the sleeves. I have a 61ish cm sleeve length and waas worried they could not be shortened sufficiently due to the adjustable cuffs.I have the Trunk Cavendish rain coat. I like a fair bit.
I would have liked it to have had buttons for the pockets, like the Campbell rain coat, but I guess I could have a tailor add those. It has zipped inner pockets.
There's a detachable throat latch that's a bit silly, but I guess removing it, the coat can be made slightly more formal.
The liner seems nice; I don't know how warm is truly is yet.
At size 50, it goes to just below my knees (I'm 186cm).
I live in D.C. (cost of things is high), and just commissioned a bespoke suit from a Cad trunk show for $2,600~. Sport coat would have been less.You mentioned up thread that $1,700 is around the same range as bespoke. (Panta is not $1,700 for a bespoke suit, btw). I only said that I don't think that's true -- bespoke is at least double that amount. Bespoke sport coats in the US generally start around $3,500 and then $4,500 for a suit. $1,000 for a sport coat and $1,500 for a suit is very mid-tier RTW.
