1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It's time to put away the sundresses and Mint Juleps, guys, winter is near. Don't be dumb and be caught unprepared: Wrap yourself in luxurious winter armor now.

    This is one of the nicest pieces of clothing I own, but it's had its run with me, and it's time that its army-lined interior grace the back of one of my fellow Styleforumers.

    I wanna say this is the F/W 2009 iteration. Tagged a 42, but fits a bit slimmer because of the thick lining, so it could work for some bigger 40's. Black waxed cotton outer with the army green lining. Riri zippers, rabbit (I think) fur collar. HEAVY, but not in a way that restricts you. Unlike other heavy winter coats I've owned, I've noticed that this fights the cold, but won't roast you if you're wearing it indoors for a while.

    Condition is quite good, both because this shit is built like a bomb shelter and because I haven't worn it as much the last two winters. The only perceptible flaw is that one of the adjustable leather straps across the elastic hem is detached on one side. As you can see in the first image, it doesn't look terribly out of place, and it seems like an easy enough fix.

    The last couple of images give you a better idea of what this looks like. There's a small area where the elastic hem ends where the strap was attached. It looks like an easy enough fix, but one that I never pursued, both out of laziness and because it didn't seem like that big of a deal.

    Retailed for more than $900; looking for an absurdly low $300 plus actual priority shipping.

    - P2P: About 23"
    - S2S (across back): 18"
    - Length (back of collar to hem): 26"
    - Sleeve: About 26" (the cuff is asymmetrical, so there's a "flap" that technically makes the sleeves longer than this)


    Keep in mind that the slimmer shoulder to chest ratio along with the thick army blanket lining makes for a trimmer fit than the chest measurement may suggest.
