    I've run a few searches but have not found much up to date information.

    Can anyone recommend a maker/brand for a mid-length shearling coat? I'd prefer a trimmer fit, however, these types of coats are traditionally made in a boxy cut. Does this leave me with only the high end fashion brands to look at?

    I would love to find one that costs less than a motorized scooter.

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    I had a bespoke shearling made by Rafel shearling last year. They made two canvas fittings for me before cutting the skin. They have to modify their stock patterns but where able to make adjustments to my pattern. They make it all on site.

    The Phineas Cole line at Paul Stuart has nice fitted shearlings but are $$$$. Not for a faint of heart.

    I suppose I'm looking for a mix between these two styles:

    Last seasons Oliver Spencer shearling: [​IMG]

    and something Polo has this year: [​IMG]

    Though I'd prefer some shearling around the cuff area. I know the Oliver Spencer coat isn't quite mid-length, but if I could find one floating around in my size I'd grab it. The Polo one is still being sold, though its still running around $1,500 on sale...
