    I guess I should wait until next Friday, right? I forgot about the whole holiday sale thing.

    Perhaps, but that jacket is not going to get any compliments.
    ie: It is unremarkable, literally.,
    The price simply makes it a complete non-issue.

    I love coats and have several. I tend to get the most compliments when wear either my RL duffel, Isaia peacoat, or Prada bomber jacket.

    Unless that photo has been reversed, you've posted a womens duffel coat, but hey, if that is what does it for you then rock on sister. :slayer:

    I thought that for a woman's duffle, the toggles are on the left with the loops on the right and it was the opposite for man's coat. The Orvis is strange in the sense that the coat closes like a woman's coat but buttons like a mans. The BB coat looks right.

    i just got this overcoat and i think it will prove to be very timeless. only wore it a few times so far as its not cold daily yet in bmore, and have got plenty of compliments.

    zegna, 100% cashmere, was well under 1500.

    I have a similar coat from RL, though not cashmere. Cornelliani made, great fit, should last for years.
