    You mean you are planning to have multiples of navy overcoat and a polo coat?

    well, they are obvious coats to get.

    Yeah, i provided the camel hair and saved a bundle. It's not super top quality like Harrison's but the color is perfect.

    I'm getting a fitting for my greatcoat on Monday. Should be interesting since it is not a standard format.

    I thought you already had a very nice RL camel polo you had shortened (shades of the mid-calf debate!). Or maybe that was Vox. I always mix you two up. :confused:
    Manton, beautiful and great fitting coat. I am with you on the mid-calf thing even though I stand a less than Watusian 5'10".

    I wore my BB polo today and one of the women who works for me asked about it. When I told her it was camel hair, her friend looked at me condescendingly and said "You know that didn't really come from a camel, right?"

    The darker of the two 100% camelhair cloths. The lighter shade looks ordinary and washed out. Don't care for the look of the blended cloth
