|Please forgive the surly man; he can't find the perfect winter coat either.|
The coat is 32oz black wool (more than double the thickest civilian wool coats), nice sturdy lining, a buttoned walking flap, and was so warm and dry! I switched to black nut buttons, flaring them out a little to give room for my hips. I also narrowed the back belt for waist definition. I wore this coat for years--my last year of college, seven years after that, and it was just showing signs of wear. Then I gave it away...
I could still buy another, but I'd prefer to leave the perfect memory intact. Instead I'm thinking of sewing a new winter coat. Perhaps for next year? This time in red! Or I may be lazy and buy another country's military cast-offs ;)
