    Got my parka yesterday, the wool is incredibly nice, I can't imagine what the cashmereis like, it must be amazing. The 44 fits great in the chest but is a little large in the waist and the skirting, a 42 would probably have been perfect, but might have limited layering options. Overall thei weight is a little heavier than most quilted jackets, so on very cold days a layer is probably necessary, in warmer climates this shouldn't be a problem. The fur is insane! Overall, this is a really nice jacket.

    I bet the cashmere is amazing but wouldn't be the most durable of materials. I suppose it depends what it's used for and how often.

    Yes, that's the one I got, but in the charcoal grey color. You are going to love it, its insanely nice. I paid the extra $6 to get mine expedited, got it in 3 days, well worth the nominal added expense.

    Thats great news. Is the wool soft like cashmere, or a bit coarser? looks fluffy.

    Very soft, maybe not cashmere soft but close. Lots of nice details, interior pockets etc. it's a steal at the price.

    Saint, are these slim fitting? Thinking about getting a parka but not sure if the 46 is too big for me and I should have pounced on the 44 you got. Thanks.

    Are you going to layer it? I wear a 42 in the slimmer Italian cut clothing and the chest on the 44 fits very well. The waist and skirting are kind of big, but not absurdly so. If I layer it and/or wear a muffler it should look fine. Ian allows returns so try the 46, jacket, it really is great and I like the color a lot, its extremely useful.

    People need to come to the 10th anniversary party bearing me gifts. This in the 50EU will do nicely:

    I hope it's not to much to ask, but is there possible to have a fitpic from either you or Spoo? And how is the sizing on these? Truly a beautiful jacket!

    Did you buy your size or 1 size large to accommodate layering? I'm a 40/42 and I'm thinking I'll need a 44 if I want to wear over a suit. Thoughts?
