Jason - is the one you're also trying to sell? I mean, it's a nice looking coat and all, although I have no firsthand experience with it. If you got it at a good discount and like it, why not keep it? What's causing your second thoughts?

(personally, if I had the need and spare funds for another coat, I would've been all over one of the Cucinellis that leon12 was offering recently!)

The jacket is sharp. I personally like the camel color the best.

Yes, that's the one i'm thinking about selling...I got it over X-mas online around $700 as a gift from a friend (Saks was so sloppy that they actually sent the invoice with it the gift receipt). I'm stuck in a dilemma situation:

Good things i like:
1. Color is navy, and I think being in my 20s, Navy works great as i already have a black
2. Length works great for me

Bad things:
1. The 3 flap thing? I know it's been popular, but i felt it was sort weird.
2. Made in Turkey? Have a bit concern on the quality.....
3. It seems to have semi-fake working button and when i take in the sleeve length to fit my arm, i think i might run into problem. (The 4 button on the sleeve is not simply threaded on, there seems to be working buttonhole made already (unless it's just thread that's threaded to make it look like buttonhole?)....and i need to shorten the sleeve by about 1/3-1/2 inch and it's cutting close to the semi-fake buttonhole )


Not so sure part:
I wear 38S for my suit, so when i put on the 40R topcoat without my suit, it obviously feel clunky, but once the suit is on it fits very comfortably; So sizing is a semi-issue as i wear 38S burberry trench....a little inconsistent gets me slighly concerned.

And the fact that i just shell out 2k on my new Ebel auto chron watch that was like 80% off.....
