the permanent style coat also has a big herringbone (just from the images i think the fabric seems more interesting) but there's still some in stockDoes 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.
Like most double-breasted Italian coats the gore seems low,
Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, I was thinking the coat would probably not be ideal in really cold weather. Seems like kind of a basic design overall so nothing I am getting too excited over. Appreciate the links.Like most double-breasted Italian coats the gore seems low, which means that
one might need an extra large scarf in really cold weather, which they don't
have much of in Italy. In contrast, see the offerings from O'Connells which
might reflect their Buffalo NY location:

Our cold weather take on a classic. The polo coat originally started out as a simple, blanket-like wrap coat - something athletes threw over their shoulders like a bathrobe while waiting to resume play. As such, it was initially called a waitoconnellsclothing.com

No experience with MP. I have a navy DB overcoat that I rarely wear, mostly because I find the design to be too formal. That said, I assume MP is a much more casual silhouette. If it's easy returns, prob can't hurt to try.
Thanks for the insight. It caught my attention because it’s on sale for 40% off (and final sale). The formality will definitely limit the use for me (a more casual cloth would probably work better). Alternatively, was thinking of having a long pea coat/bridge coat with more casual details made up bespoke. Will marinate on it!No experience with MP.

No kidding. I just checked these ones out. I'd get them if I didn't already have similiar ones in my wardrobe. Bals are fairly size agnostic IMO.Some nice looking overcoats on the B&S right now
(not my listings and no prices listed but maybe worth a check)
