    It looks like made of newborn lambs fur. There is a term for it but I forgot. When I was younger my grand grandmother used to have a hat and a coat made of this and it scared me.

    I would love a coat like that nonetheless.

    Today, I just donned my 30's Stetson Special, 50's Hart Schaffner & Marx Blazer, 50's Richman Brothers Harris Tweed Overcoat, and 60's Seiko watch (my great grandfathers ), and the rest are modern items, so I won't get into that!

    Buttoned up!


    Un-Buttoned!
    I seem to have acquired quite a serious fever... and the only cure is more hats!

    "Persian Lamb" or "Astrakhan"? I have a dream of an overcoat lined in astrakhan with a big astrakhan collar.

    This but black:

    Baron, that coat is epic. I would totally wear that. I actually prefer the blue/black contrast over a black on black design. That coat would be awesome with a shiny silk tophat and an ascot under a wing or high stand collar. Love it.

    Splinter - getting better and better, my friend! That ensemble is understated, yet elegant and showing plenty of panache. Keep it up!

    The only minor thing I notice is that your shirt collar may perhaps be slightly too large for you. You seem to have quite a bit of space between your neck and the collar, but I could be wrong as pictures can be deceiving. Only a minor point and it detracts very, very little from the whole package.

    I am wearing a fleece jacket in honor of the US government. I think fleece is appropriate as they have fleeced most of us for years.

    I think it's buffalo. Turn of the century, sold in upstate NY.
    Of course I've got a sense of humor about it! The dog, well, maybe not so much.

    That you! I would have to agree. The shirt is from my mother's boyfriend, and well, he is a bit bigger than I am. But you are right, it is a wee-bit big. The shoulders dont fall where they should, so even that part is off.

    On the flip-side, I am soon going to be purchasing some shirts that fit properly, and I am thinking about going the detachable-collar route. Something different!
