Great story! I have this coat too, as well as the matching high-waisted pants in the same material. Be sure to store it hanging otherwise any wrinkles on the material could be permanent!View attachment 1345950
Olive Oiled Coat Story,
Pre ordered this Fw17 oiled coat from NMWA after attending the runway show. I was pretty broke at the time so it was a big purchase. No stores picked the oiled version up and so far as I know Robert has the only other one besides the show samples. About a year after that I started taking a medication that was a complete mess and for some delightful reason a side effect was me selling a bunch of things I really loved. Got that nonsense sorted out and started feeling like myself again, at the same time I realized what I had done. I tracked down the guy I sold it to, and after a few weeks of negotiating its back in my possession. So all is right in my little corner of the world.
I debated between this coat and the shiny pants, luckily this past month I ran into one of the show samples.
I don't know how this show ranks with everyone else, but my back story makes it number one to me.
