Given where I live, it makes no sense that I have as many overcoats as I do. But, who said things have to make sense, anyway?

The Edward Sexton and Eduardo coats are my favourite.

Have any more pictures of those?

I've coveted Polo RL's iteration of the Camel Polo Coat for a while now, but I've heard there are some issues with quality and length for post-Corneliani made ones.

Do you guys have any experiences with it? Also, are there any good alternatives that aren't American-made? (I find the American polo coats too generous when it comes to fit)

Could do a search in this thread

I have the made in US Polo RL one. Fine with quality. Personally think length is fine. I'm 5'11 and my coat is a short and it goes just below the knee.

Like the polo coat. Reminds me of :
It reminds everyone of that. I assume it's quite intentional on the part of Eduardo de Simone.

Does anyone know of any coats done in (or mills which make) herringbone pattern ultrawide (4cm or greater)? I only know of the recent Wythe coat, which is a custom herringbone. Haven't been able to find anything that wide from any MTO/bespoke maker that I've contacted. Everything is 0.5-1.5 inches max.

Do you mean for RTW or custom?

If custom, try Drapers.

Ideally RTW since off-the-rack fits me fine, but I've found it virtually impossible to locate RTW options with ultrawide herringbone of at least 4cm width (other than the recent Wythe coat that sold out immediately in small/medium, with no one looking to resell). And I would be willing to pay custom prices for the right cloth. Will check Drapers. You mean Drapers to source the cloth, right? Thanks

Yes, Drapers to source the cloth. They sell directly to the public. Be forewarned that their fabric is very expensive. You can order swatches before buying cut lengths.
