    I'm aware it's a little fashion forward, but I found a Donna Karan topcoat for sale at what looks like a reasonable price. It's from the Signature line, made in Italy from a good quality fabric.

    Without being able to handle the garment prior to purchase (and therefore taking a gamble on sizing...) I'm wondering if anyone has experience of the quality of workmanship and fit of the Signature collection? It originally retailed at about $3000, but I'm smart enough to know that's not an indicator of quality per se.

    Many thanks for your time.

    It must be old stock or you don't live in North America. Donna Karan hasn't sold men's clothing (from the Signature line or couture) in North America for a few years now.

    That said, I own a few sport coats from her Signature line and I found the quality to be nothing special. Sizing on what I do own tended to run average (I didn't find it overly boxy, nor slim fitted). I don't know if I can assess a topcoat from her sport coats...
