    Hi guys, I made a purchase today that I'm quite excited about. I bought this BrooksStorm Walking Coat from Brooks Brothers. I got a 25% off too, thanks to the Friends & Family discount code. http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatPr...._Id=202 [​IMG] (mine's in navy) I was quite impressed by the quality. The labels read: -- Woven in Italy by Ing Loro Piana & C. Sport Fabrics Storm System Rain & Wind Proteection 100% Pure Wool -- Brooks Brothers Hunting Collection Inspired by designs from the Brooks Brothers archives, the Hunting Collection is reminiscent of the traditional gaming apparel sported by gentlemen in the English countryside. Each garment reflects the style and vigor of hunting attire combined with expert craftsmanship and quality. -- It feels very comfortable, thanks to the quality of the wool of the shell as well as the 80% cotton 20% innerlining. Although it is significantly more than what I'm used to spending on a piece of garment, and a step up from the JCrew university jacket I was lookg at, I figure that it would be worth getting this because I would wear it virtually everyday during the fall/winter... it works very well with business casual attire. Cheers

    looks like a nice purchase.

    do you (or anyone else) have any more information on this 'Hunting Collection'?

    I don't, but it seems like their casual outerwear are grouped into different "collections". Unfortunately, the collection in which an outerwear falls is not specified in their website.

    I definitely like the styling and cut of this jacket.
