I was watching that coat in the auction that ended yesterday and was stunned nobody bid on it. I was very tempted to buy it for resale. That seller had an amazing stock of PL shirts for $50 and $60 (I bought a great Keaton from her and it arrived quick with no problems). She has some nice RL cashmere sweaters for $100 too.

edit: well it looks like someone has bought it already.

Yeah, been watching one of those in green. Not sure about the color but that (and purple) is all that's left in medium. Is it made in China?

It's kind of drab looking with soft shoulder. Grey color with that pattern looks geriatric to me. I guess that explains the selling price.

A lot of that is due to the bad photography. And how can you tell anything about the shoulder construction with it spread on the floor?

Obviously, the look is in the eye of the beholder - but if anything I'd call it youthful vs geriatric.

I was looking through her sweaters and I noticed huge variation in sizing. Some XS were 40" chests. I thought medium was supposed to be 42"? Are RL sweaters normally sized so large?
