Hi all,

I'm looking to get a navy overcoat, and I've been checking out the offerings from the above-named vendors. I wanted to check here and see if anybody had any recommendations pro or cons wrt these shops. Black Lapel and Kent Wang are the most expensive, Indochino the least, but the prices are not an issue. All except for SuitSupply offer customization like lapels, pockets, lining color, etc.

Any other recommendations are welcome too. I do like the idea of some customization, and even though I've read some folks here against the idea, I like the feature of working buttonholes. Just for an extra touch.

Thanks in advance,

Eric Z

Since you said other recommendations are welcome:
I love my overcoat from Bookster Tailoring. Everything about it pretty customizable.

I was looking at the indochino overcoats. And they look really thin and like a really long suit coat. I dono If I'd go with them.
Edit; by thin I mean the material itself. It looks more like a suit jacket than an overcoat

Thanks Eddie. It makes sense that something so relatively inexpensive might be made of thinner material. I'll scratch them off my list.
