    Looks great, all though I prefer my coats more slouchy and with belts.

    It actually has a pretty decent waist.

    I hate, hate, hate short coats. Must go past the knee for me.


    Wearing mine (above/at the knee) today. Could not imagine wearing something that heavy and long, I'd be sweating like crazy.

    was the mirror flat against a wall or tilted back a little bit? You look incredibly tall in the picture.

    Jesus ... I can't see a damn thing.

    I spoke too soon ... had not gotten to this page ... and lightened photos.

    Good work NOBD.

    Manton, the overcoat looks fantastic.

    It's actually not too warm but wearing it is kind of a workout.

    400-500gms is as high as I can go. You wear a warm suit under it?

    Looks nice Manton. But given the photos ... I feel as if I'm looking at a Magritte.

    I did today. I have a rather windswept walk to the train.

    Actually, I was quite comfortable in it on the train. I assume I will get used to the weight.

    I think you will; and then you will wonder how you managed on cold days without it. At least, I feel that way about my heaviest long overcoat. [​IMG] I like (what I can see of) it especially the good length, but do you think the sleeves should be lengthened a smidgen? I personally like the coat sleeve to be long enough to stay over the top of the glove bottom in most positions. I mean, if it's cold enough for a proper heavy overcoat, you're not going to want exposed wrists.
