    Selling a medium, charcoal, 100% wool Billy Reid Bond peacoat. I've tried it on a few times in the house but never outside. Details from the BR website:

    Double breasted overcoat
    Horn buttons
    Leather under collar and locker loop
    Unlined
    Single vent
    Made in Italy

    Please note this is the 100% wool version. These aren't available any more from Billy Reid. Apparently, all their Bond peacoats were 100% wool originally, but then in 2013, they had to switch to 80% wool/20% nylon due to sourcing. In 2014 they went to 90% wool/10% nylon. More discussion here: http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/42012/new-billy-reid-coats-arent-100-wool/ - the general consensus of the comments on that site suggests the 100% wool coat is a bit nicer, has a bit more supple or luxurious feel, FWIW.

    Measurements on the Billy Reid website are accurate:

    31.3" body length 17.72" shoulder to shoulder 21.46" chest 34.65" sleeve length from center back
