    Based on your criterion (save for the first vis a vis the "colid" requirement) I think that these fit the bill but I think I have to agree that to really battle the chicago colds Tomasso is on the mark.

    I love this one. I just sent you an email actually. I just realized you specialize in littlepeoplewear, I am 6' with a 42" chest. Would it fit me or where would I find something larger?

    I moved to Chicago from Miami....my coat collection was a thin leather jacket from the Gap...yeah that's all I had for a bit. I mananged until there were sales at Nordstrom. Nordstrom has a large selection of coats, if they are not there now they will have them out by Oct. 1st. Once the sales were on I found a great long coat that I love and a year a later a 3/4.

    I'm always on the lookout for coat sales as you never know when prices may drop.

    I also really like these penguin coats. I just recently bought some penguin cotton pants though and I washed them COLD water and didn't dry and the things shrunk 2" at least. I still need to take them back to off saks. Are the coats the same crappy quality? I want something fun that I can wear with anything, not necessarily over a suit for less than $500. I really want a plaid coat I think, british or italian.

    Ummm...pretty sure that any double breasted overcoat (hence the peaked lapel) will give you that look if you wear it slung over your shoulders and open.

    I also quite like this one, though it is out of my budget perhaps: [​IMG] Don't know if I could pull it off casually either. That striped jacket is from http://www.fourinhand.com/Product.as...oduct=PDF03-01 They have your size. Then, the perfect coat, but not my size! [​IMG]

    Obviously, this Gucci coat on Bluefly, at the low LOW price of 1500, is your best bet: [​IMG] You can hate me later. [​IMG]

    I tried on the bottom penguin one at macy's. Fit me pretty nicely, from what i can remember from last year. Penguin fits nice but those pants really made me angry with how they shrunk. I'll have to make a trip to the large macy's in san francisco to see what they have.

    The coat is beautiful. And the price seems too good to be true.

    Does anyone have any experience with Magnoli? How is their stuff?

    Is someone paying you by the post or do you just live in very dark and lonely place with a Buffalo Bill-like alter to Ciro and Massimo. Should they be afraid? I am.[​IMG] [​IMG]
    Who is this Buffalo Bill? Is he an artisan as well? If my memory serves me correctly, I have a vague recollection of hand work in his oeuvre.

    Everyone at Fedora Lounge thinks he's excellent.

    Cool weather can't come soon enough. Filene's Basement has cashmere overcoats for Italy for $400, and there are the outlet malls also with good coats.

    I believe he is a couturier. He is a real artisan fan who works for himself.

    I saw a lot of nice Corneliani overcoats at the C21 in Paramus. I'm probably going to go pick one up from there in a month or so if they're still available. IIRC they were about $400 or so.
