    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.

    As I've told you before, beautiful coat stitches. Be sure to leave the label on the sleeve though. More compliments that way.

    Glad to see you like the Orvis coat. It's a good buy.
    In reference to your question about a navy shearling coat, you posted two pictures of coats from the Paul Stuart websites.
    The first picture, included here, shows the "Wheeler" coat, which is made of navy blue shearling.
    In retrospect, I may have assumed you were considering buying it, since you posted it and mentioned the complements it would garner.
    If so, I apologize for the misunderstanding.

    Von, so is the Orvis coat a female coat b/c of the reversal of buttoning side ?

    It's listed as a men's coat, and the section of the store it was in when I tried it on seemed to reinforce it as such. I think the photo's reversed, since it does always kind of look "off" to me when i look at it. Definitely men's, though, yes.

    +1 My Brooks Brother duffle coat gathers more compliments than all my other jackets combined.

    Style novice here......I like the looks of these duffel coats. But are they appropriate for business casual wear? Can you wear one over dress shirt and dress pants? Can you wear one over a suit or sportcoat?

    Thanks!!
