    Still an outstanding piece of garment ...

    What is such a fine jacket/coat compared to the crap wich is produced „en Masse“ today and worn by 95% of the people around ...

    True but I would feel kinda silly wearing it. A little over the top unless I'm in the Arctic.
    Carl, do you have the trousers too?

    Those trousers are awesome. The way they are photographed reminds me of an old Wallace and Grommet episode of some mechanical trousers. :D
