Indeed they are! But no self respecting Midwesterner should have a closet without one! I’ll report back on the SJC when it arrives, hopefully in early December.
I knew I’d seen that jacket before but it didn’t click together until he said it. I’ve always thought that was an ultimate at least for me,.. the half belt, the pockets and the cuff straps all together. I’ve had Admiral Byrd, Albert Richard on my searches for a few years but they sure don’t show up often. I’d trade a closet full for one of these and just wear the hell out of it. Thanks for posting. Is the 1st one yours?
That coat must cost a lot in shipping! Love them both and the boots. But mainly the coat. Perfect length. Just above the knee and not showing too much thigh. Most modern coats are too short to be proper coats. What kinda lining did you put in that coat? Wool?
