    I like their Crombie coats of course, but Stitchy seemed to be implying he was looking for something like this, since he was referencing Sherlock and this coat (but wanted it longer), it sounds like something similar to a Great Coat to me.

    A great coat may work, if its cool enough.

    Im looking for an awesome, kind of rugged, insanely cool, long coat.

    Can be wool, cashmere, cotton, shearling... As long as its effing awesome and super manly.

    Have Luxire make one for you. They can make it as long, rugged an awesome as you'd like. They could probably recreate sherlock's coat exactly as well, for a reasonable price.

    Its a smooth cat minimalist coat in a black/gray. Im looking to go more rugged in a blue (for Sherlock coat) or an earth tone. More outdoorsman. When I see it, Ill know. I have seen a lot of contenders, but they are mostly not long enough. Booooo.

    MF - Interesting idea. Thanks.

    I showed them a picture or two and described all of the details and they pretty much nailed it. If there's a coat you want, but it's not long enough, show them the picture, describe the important details and ask them to make it longer. It's as simple as that. They've perfectly recreated the Bond Skyfall peacoat, so the Sherlock coat wouldn't be too much of a challenge. You can probably stay under $700-800, depending on the fabric.

    Got it. With the hood on, it seems like a pretty rugged piece, but obviously not the right color or exactly what you're looking for. Good hunting!

    Seems like a safe bet.

    +1 99% of folks that wear Belstaff don't ride a moto (tie the waist belt in the back). Same as Barbour - majority of their owners don't ride motos or hunt.

    Stitch, I like you in a Belstaff in B-more. I wore mine their a few years back and my friend's heads exploded - some good some bad. In that town, they only know the Barbour Beaufort & Bedale.

    Appreciate the pseudo-feedback Clags, and also the bumpage . Apparently this topic was not the barnburner I thought it would be. Let me know if there's anything I can do to return the favor, beyond the occasional thumb :thumbs-up:
