    Would like to order a camel hair overcoat for the coming winter, and would like some suggestions for good books to review. I'm familiar with the W. Bill collection, but what else is out there that won't break the bank?

    I know MInnis has a camel hair in their English Coatings book, but it's about three times as much wholesale as their standard coatings.

    ^ Thanks. I should clarify that I'm hoping to track down books that offer a comprehensive collection of different camel hairs (much like the W. Bill book), and not a regular coatings book with one or two camel hairs in boring colors.

    If I'm not mistaken, Harrisons offers three or four camel hair offerings in its overcoatings, but I doubt that qualifies as comprehensive.
