• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Quality appears lacking for the price.

Looks nice. If I did the conversion right, about $1,100+ USD. Seems a little expensive, so if you get it, give it the onceover pretty good so you can determine quality v. price, as the previous poster has noted.

The product page uses a "as seen in GQ" logo, reminiscent of something you'd see featured in an infomercial. That alone is reason not to buy.

That looks like a double-breasted version of my old couch.

I don't think I'd pay $110 for it

If you can get a vintage Crombie, go for it, but their newer stuff isn't all that great.

If GQ recommends it , avoid it like the plague.

Out of all the available coats in stock, my favourite is this one:
Yeah, no real criticism of the coat you're looking at. Looks nice, fabric looks good, and camel is always nice. I don't subscribe to the GQ hate that MC harbors (not that I subscribe to GQ either), so that "AS SEEN IN GQ" means nothing to me either way. Above all, I know nothing of Crombie, and thus couldn't offer any real criticism if I tried.

Isn't there an almost new Hermes overcoat in the B&S forum on here for sale for almost the same price?
