    Agree. Coats are my biggest weakness. I love them on women, too.

    I love the style of them, especially on Cary. My issue is that I travel on planes 2-3 times a month and the bulk/volume is difficult to deal with.

    gently fold the coat. what's the problem? I fly every week and I take off my suit jacket. If I am not in first, then I gently fold the suit jacket inside out and do the same with my overcoat. put it in the overhead bin. not the greatest solution but for a few hours, it won't kill it.

    With these comments, no wonder you don't post as much as me.

    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]

    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]
