    yeah, i'm not a fan of the patch pockets either. i'm wondering if they can be removed without making it too obvious. i'm also on the lookout for a version in the same material with slit pockets.

    lol! well, i wouldn't necessarily need a bailout, but i've never dropped more than $1k on a coat. it's also hard to imagine wearing it anytime soon as it was 90deg here yesterday.

    that said, one detail i really like is the double slits for all the buttons. it looks like you could close it up tighter if you're not layering much underneath.

    here's one with side slit pockets, but it costs $300 more and the color/material doesn't look as nice.

    If you making bank go ahead. If you may have to tighten reins a bit afterwards then I would hold onto my money. Christmas and thanksgiving coming up too.

    I'm new to SF, but would anybody mind telling me if you think this jacket is a good buy for $79. Wool body with leather sleeves. It's used but's in good shape.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Think of the joy that will fill them seeing their begetter steezing out of control, what gift could equal that?

    If you think it's one of those things you're going to regret in the future if you don't cop (grail), then grab it if you have the means. The fabrics that Ann uses are wonderful.

    Is it difficult for you to understand that just because you like something doesn't mean everyone should like something? Lots of people don't like patch pockets.

    I think it depends on context. I like patch pockets on some casual blazers, and they make sense on some types of jackets. On that coat, they look like they add unnecessary bulk to the hip area. Unless you're into that. :smarmy:
