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,

    GORGEOUS SAWYER OF NAPA SHEARLING COAT!​


    This is NOT your everyday shearling coat! Cut from beautiful chocolate-brown leather (rather than the much more common light khaki hide) and lined with creamy white sheepskin--including throughout the arms, where lesser jackets often have only a quilted lining, AND in the front pockets--this was Made in the USA by Sawyer of Napa, possibly one of the best shearling manufacturers in America today.

    And this coat does full justice to Sawyer's reputation and astronomical cost. The leather is beautifully soft and supple, and is a wonderful milk chocolate colour. All of the seams throughout are firmly and tightly double-stitched. It features two handwarmer pockets, and two front snap pockets--the latter are both lined in the same thick creamy warm sheepskin that the body and arms of the coat are lined in. The sheepskin collar flips up, and stays up when flipped--but in case you're dealing with high winds it also have a fully functional leather (of course!) throat latch. The front closes using a full-length storm flap, which both snaps and zippers shut. All the snaps work perfectly, and the zipper is wonderfully fluid. The full-length storm flap is also lined in thick, creamy sheepskin. This really is a stunningly beautiful coat!

    It is in absolutely EXCELLENT condition. The sheepskin has no flaws at all, anywhere--even the sheepskin lining in the pockets in still thick and fluffy, and hasn't matted down or become discolored at all. There are no marks or flaws or scuffs on the leather at all, either--except for a very small marring by the left shoulder, as pictured. This coat has been work rarely, if at all... And I speak with authority here, as I purchased it from its original owner who wore it a mere handful of times in clement weather, and I wore it precisely once.... Alas, it's too beautiful a coat for me, and I was always worried about it--which is foolish, but you benefit from my foolishness!

    This coat will last literally decades.... So buy it so you can leave "Daddy's sheepskin coat" to your son!

    New, this coat would have been well north of four figures. I paid rather a lot for it..... But it's doing no good in my closet (laid FLAT, of course, so as not to lead to any miss-shaping from being hung), and so it's priced for a very quick sale... You just don't find coats of this quality, in this condition, IN THIS SIZE, and at this price, very often! So... how about $195, boxed, shipped, and insured in CONUS, with International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost? Naturally, as always, [COLOR=FF00AA]OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME[/COLOR], too! I really don't want to give this up... But i do want it to be used!

    Measurements:

    Tagged a L, and fits me well as a 40, but could also work for a 38 (maybe) or 42, depending on how much you want to layer.


    Chest: 24
    Length (BOC): 33
    Sleeve (underarm to cuff; raglan sleeves, so can't really measure shoulder to cuff): 18 3/4
