    I need a new overcoat, 3/4 length for wearing with a suit. Preferrably grey and i would love it to be cashmere. Unfortunately cashmere is expensive (of course) and of MANY different qualities so its hard to say which one is better than another. The one loro piana by loro piana I have seen was fabulous, and at 399 with an additional 20% off was a great deal... but it was a 56S. Not exactly the most in demand size I have ever seen. (USA sizing, not European)

    Since then I have seen a ton of different overcoats, but unsure as to the quality. Does anyone have any hints as to who makes a good coat?

    I've always liked coats from Cardinal of Canada. I have several including a couple I picked up recently. They use very good fabrics including the cashmere; they are well-made, and I find them to be warm and comfortable. They manufacture for other labels like Jack Victor and Ike Behar. Pretty expensive at full retail ($1000+ for a cashmere coat), but I think they're often found at discount retailers. Check out these Burberry's by CC: Coat1 Coat2
