... but is it a Crombie?

Firstly, an apology. I have to spend six out of the next seven days on campus, and the odd day is my wife's birthday, so this is going to be a rushed start. But it ought to set you thinking. Secondly, many thanks to Clouseau for keeping me on track - I had no idea how this worked, so he has been nudging me in the right direction. Hopefully all will go well.

I want us to look at the gentleman's single-breasted, overcoat. It can say "City" - a cut above for the well-dressed, well-heeled man about town. It can say "Street" - the Sk*nhead vibe. It can even hint at the oligarch's minder. It can be from Saville Row, or a knock-off from the market...

It can be all wool. It can be leather. It can have open buttons or a fly-front. The question is - what can you do with it? How do you wear yours? If you got it out of your wardrobe right now and got ready to go out, how would you put a look together?

I'm sorry not to have any pics of me in mine at this stage. I'll see if I can get one or two as things progress.

[Once again, a big "merci mille fois" to Clouseau. Will this do?]

... Oh, I forgot. End date Jan. 12, 2020. Will that suit you guys?

From a few weeks ago in Rhode Island. May substantively enter. I bought that coat in 2004 and it is definitely time for it to be replaced.

When war is at 6, but 'tis the season.
I asked some Cosplayers at a Santa Booth doing a photo session at Comic Con to take a picture with me. Haha. Have I entered correctly? Never done one of these Friday Challenges.

The coat is BC, single button close with an optional zipper that prevents wind leakage. I almost always wear it informally.
