    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Price lowered to $300 or best offer!

    Brand new, never-worn car coat-length raincoat in medium/dark khaki waterproof coated 100% cotton from Enrico Mandelli. Made in Italy.

    Size 40R (EU 50R). Actual measurements (measured laid flat on a tabletop):

    34" length (measured from top of collar to bottom of coat)
    26" sleeve length (measured from shoulder to sleeve end, 35" from center of shoulder/collar bottom)
    19.25" shoulder-to-shoulder
    19.25" armpit-to-armpit
    20.5" across at waist
    22" across at bottom seam (with center vent closed)

    Coat has excellent finishing, with quality horn (or horn-like) buttons, very clean stitching throughout (button holes appear imperfect/hand-stitched, but might just be good machine-stitched technique), half-lined, two external side pockets, two internal breast pockets, center vent.

    Brown leather trim under collar, along zip pocket on left inside breast pocket and triangle latch on right inside breast pocket. Brown piping (fabric) along inner half-liner. Horn button and latch on rear center vent. Comes with 2 extra buttons (shown). Metal chain coat hanger with sturdy attachment.

    I got this while traveling in Italy a couple of years ago (for roughly ~$1000 at the time). Brought it home expecting to wear frequently but long story why I have not yet managed to wear it. Between having to wear suits every day, also owning a full-length Burberry, 2 Barbour jackets and various more casual water-resistant jackets for weekends, and the rarity of days in NYC when it's too chilly for just a suit but not cold enough for something thicker, it hasn't yet made it into my rotation.

    It would be better suited for someone who is able to dress more casually during the weekday (or prefers to be a little more dressed up on the weekend); sadly, I am realizing that person is not me, so it seems best to let this one go. So $300 or best offer for a completely unworn pristine coat, unavailable (to my knowledge) in the US.

    Mandelli is a brand I've never seen in the US, but highly respected in Italy. For reference, I see they do sell coats at Barneys (here's a car coat in wool listed currently at $1495) http://www.barneys.com/product/enrico-mandelli-car-coat-504390318.html Mine is similar in overall cut/silhouette, though obviously in lighter cotton rather than wool, and mine does not have a fly front or the sleeve button-tabs.

    That is me in the photos -- I am an even 6', weigh 175 lbs, 34" waist, 40R suit size. Sleeves may look slightly long in this photo, but I have somewhat short arms (I wear a 33" sleeve shirt) and also lost around 10 lbs after buying the coat, which I find has made all my sleeves slightly longer (i.e., someone with less short arms may not have this issue).

    in the photo with the extra buttons, they are hanging off of the plastic hanger (there is not a horizontal dark bar or lining/seam across the inside), in case it wasn't clear.
