Won this last week on the eBay, but it’s too big for me.

Nigel Cabourn Taffy Cold Weather Parka in Stone. Made in England using 100% Ventile cotton, which is totally waterproof and yet comfy and breathable. Size 50 (US Large). It is in excellent condition, only worn a handful of times. There are a few spots near the bottom of the front pockets where my keys rubbed and left marks. They're very minor. The one on the right looks like a faint pen mark. The are completely unnoticeable when you're wearing it. Otherwise, there is some very minor color crocking on the cuffs that you'll hard even notice. Color way is called Stone - like natural khaki sort of color.

This was made for Super Denim private order for the AW13 season. It's rare to find this piece with full body Harris Tweed lining. The sheepskin neck is so good! It looks soft in the pictures, it's even softer and nicer in person. 

From Nigel Cabourn Site:
The Cold Weather Parka (CWP) is based on a design worn by the British Army and RAF in WWII and it first appeared in The Ascent of Cabourn Limited Edition Collection in 2003 - originally named ‘Taffy’ after one of Hilary’s colleagues. Cookson & Clegg manufactured the original military design, and the same factory makes the Nigel Cabourn version today.
