I agree the coat is priced a lot higher than anything else on grailed. But I do believe this coat is truly unique.Great price.

This being a forum, I would like to share my thoughts with you guys about it over here though.
1. The alpaca coat was the most hyped coat, in Frozen Waves (arguable Schneider's best collection), together with the Merino coat.
2. While the merino coat had an exact rerun copy by NMWA, this one was never reproduced. Making it really hard to get.
3. This is the most sought after version of the coat. And rightfully so. This Cashmere/Wool blend version was exclusively made for South Willard. I've handled all the different alpaca coats: canvas, cashmere, moleskin, wool; nothing compares to this.
That being said: you will never find this version of the alpaca coat in this state again.
The coat is in great shape since I quickly grew up to size 6/7 and unfortunately wasn't able to wear this anymore.
Mind you: this is from the AW11 collection. This is a piece of Schneider history.
Apart from everything being said above: this is the last alpaca coat I currently own (and actually the first Schneider item that I bought from the US). It goes without saying that this thing also has quite the amount of sentimental value to me.
If you guys find 1k too much money for the coat then that's fine for me as well.
I just wanted to explain where I'm coming from
Depends entirely on you but for the anchor I suggest a little sloppy break. You can also just fold them up for as day and see if you like itI just got the Poetry single-pleat trousers in blue from Need Supply and they're gorgeous. A bit darker than I expected, but I can't wait to pair them with the Anchor sweater when it comes in next week.
However, I do have to get them hemmed since I'm only 5'9". A lot of the product shots show them with no break - should I go for this, or will they look better with some break?
I appreciate the response. And I would like to state out that this is the first time I'm selling an item above its original retail price. And that's the reason why I've dedicated a post on this forum to this as well.This is not something that I would typically write, but since I really can't stand when people try to make a profit when selling used clothes, here it is:
If you can sell it for the price you're asking, great, but
1. Maybe, debatable. I would argue that the Merino is the iconic piece (not a coincidence it was the piece that years later was reissued) and that the Loden / Montana knits are, retrospectively, the best pieces from that collection. But it's all subjective.
2. Au Revoir Et Merci, a since long gone store based in Paris, was able to get the Alpaca reproduced in AW12. They had a small run made, which was almost entirely bought by SF users, but it was enough to then significantly affect the resale value of the piece.
3. Again, debatable, and most back in 2011 would have argued that the anthracite was the most sought after version. This version was not exclusive to SW either, I handled the exact same version at Gravity Pope, in Vancouver.
All this to say that it is, undoubtedly, a great piece, and that someone may have been looking for it long enough to be willing to pay your asking price. I have no idea what the market is like for it today, but I also know that your price is twice what the original US retail price was.
