Just curious if anyone has a CT Covert Coat that they can post pics of. The website pics aren't that great, and I'm very curious to hear feedback from people. Being in Edmonton, reasonably priced overcoats of decent quality are few and far between.

Anyone got some pics of theirs?

I bought one last year for about US$200. IMHO it was a good value at that price, but not any higher.

The coat is light weight - I'd say approximately 14 ounce cloth. So if you're looking for a coat that will protect you in Edmonton's frigid winter climate, keep looking. But if you want something for early autumn and early that is just a little more than you suit jacket, the CT covert nay be your jacket. You can return it for a refund if you don't like it.

BTW, CT takes forever to deliver. By the time this coat would arrive to you, it will probably too cold for wearing it in Edmonton.

IIRC, they run small. I usually wear a 44 Regular and my CT cover is a little snug accross the back.

Francisco hit the all the points. It's a fine coat on sale. If you'd like a version of the English classic and Cordings is a bit too steep, Tyrwhitt is a good way to go.

Just had to revive this thread again. I've been on the fence about it for awhile and after trying on a very similar Paul Smith covert coat at Holt Renfrew, I'm sorely tempted to order one tonight.

Just to clarify 2 points - does it have buttons on the sleeve or ribbed stitching? Where does it generally fall relative to the knee (at the knee, above, below)?

Thanks again for everyones feedback.
