    Default The original coat on this thread went on sale today!

    http://www.hickeyfreeman.com/website...5&dept_id=2017

    It is $825, 40% off the original price. I bought one today, and they have it available in most sizes. They are also offering free shipping.

    He is wearing informal dress with a top coat, which strictly speaking, is more formal than the one pictured in the OP.

    ps note the signature Homburg hat, often called an "Anthony Eden" in the UK.
    I really like that hat.

    Sorry if this is a double post - Where is this coat made and can anyone comment on the construction? Is it canvassed?

    Thanks.

    I have mine, the 48 I ordered was a bit snug over a suit (48L) so the store in SF had a 50 shipped from NY. I have to send the 48 back since their policy does not allow online purchases to be returned to the stores.

    The first day I wore it, I received many compliments on the coat, it is very warm, drapes well and looks outstanding.

    Default Fit of HF Topcoat

    I have been eying this coat and purchased it when I saw it was on sale. The web site had no longs but I called the NYC store and they were able to come up with a 44L which is also my suit size. The shoulders fit well, however the waist suppression is nothing like in the pictures. I am having my tailor take it in as well as having the sleeves lengthen. I wear a 36 inch shirt sleeve and the sleeves of the coat barley cover the shirt sleeve. The coat falls to my knees which is right wear I want it. Hope this may help anybody contemplating an over the phone purchase.

    Does anyone know if there is a name for the style of two pockets on the coats right side? I quite like it!

    I love that coat. I have many sb peaks in my wardrobe inc. my "stroller" as well as lounge suits and sports jackets but have never tried it on a topcoat. My tan covert coat almost needs replacing...maybe this is my opportunity. Would an OTP be okay with an Sb peak topcoat? I usually avoid them on sb peak jackets.

    The salesman that assisted me inferred the coat was for more formal occasions, black tie affairs etc.

    Is it, too formal for day time wear with a suit, I look forward to hearing opinions on this.

    Given how low cut that overcoat is (compared to most other overcoats), I wonder how good a job that overcoat would do of keeping a man warm compared to a more typical high cut overcoat?

    If that low cut overcoat did just as good a job of keeping a man warm as a higher cut overcoat, I will definitely buy two (one charcoal solid and one navy solid) bespoke one-button single breasted overcoats as low cut as that three-button rolled to two-button or two button single breasted overcoat after I buy some bespoke suits when I have the money to do that.

    IMO, low cut dress and formal jackets and overcoats with one button are in a class of their own, at least looks and appearance wise, especially for stocky men like me.

    Ede and Ravenscroft are channelling Eden this Autumn/Winter. I saw this in their shop window the other day:



    They call it the Eden overcoat, in a herringbone, but have added turn back cuffs.
