    That's a bad ass peacoat...of course, what else would you expect from Stu, huh? Seriously, a beautiful coat and I'm certain that it's top-notch construction.

    Hoping it fits him. It looks lovely. If by chance it doesn't fit, I'll flip it. I also got him a new LW jacket last month for a song on eBay. This will be his 3rd or 4th, and all of them I got for very little money. Thanks all for the compliments.
    He models and acts and has a band, which means that it's feast or famine. We try to help with things like this so he puts up a good look when he needs to.
    He'll be lucky to wear these for decades most likely and get his own vintage look. I started too late, so I'll be lucky to be able to accomplish this on my own :(

    Really gorgeous jacket and while it's different it's not really that far out there - just taking the "flannel shirt as a jacket look" and dressing it up. Honestly reminds me of a fashion piece that would go for BIG $$. (And we know that being from LW it's built like a tank.)

    That looks amazing! It would be a huge shame if it didn't fit.

    He has many friends in that arena...he was part of that, but has changed things up a bit. Still I believe it will make him happy of she fits. It will makes someone happy anyhow.
