Your favourite overcoat battered and chucked in the dryer for 2 hours? Or a striking, highly textured alternative to tweed?
All a matter of perspective!
I was looking into having another overcoat made in the future. I was drawn to the quintessential camel hair polo coat.
A dropped button stance polo coat may not be as practical, but it looks very striking.
Unfortunately, I didn't know camel hair is a luxury cloth, most places sell it at 250 euros per meter.
I was fascinated by casentino in a similiar colour. Cashmere and cashmere/wool blends would look too flat to my eye as a replacement to camel hair.
I also didn't know pure camelhair is also not very durable, but casentino is.
Turns out, TACS will sell direct for 25 euros per metre! I had no idea casentino cloth was this cheap.
What is everyone's thoughts on the cloth? How about camelhair?
