I think it must have been the same coat. The seller seemed quite sad to part with it and said it was part of a fairly big WWII collection that just had to go, but it is in damn good condition- parts are in even better condition than the 60s coat you helped me with last year. The WWII coats are quite nice- they seem to have a bit more flattering appearance with a bit more waist suppression, maybe because it's got more buttons.Originally Posted by Peacoat
I've seen the Buzz Rickson one also, at least online. It looks nice, but $700 is quite a price tag for a repro wool coat! With prices like that, I guess the one I picked up would be quite a steal even if it was a repro!
I know what you mean regarding the addiction. Just what I need, something else to start collecting.
