I have a navy Ben Sherman, and a light gray (stone) Brooks Brothers, never invested in a "real" Harrington..

These are a decent replica of the ones we were discussing a few months  back, like Lennon wore in the video made in the park.

I tried them on when I was in the shop in NYC but I donít do gold, plus the ones they had on display were huge on me. Not sure if they make smaller sizes. Iím not convinced these would suit me but would like to try a smaller pair in silver if I came across any. Saw some RB Olympian Deluxe II for sale on eBay once which are similar and come in silver or black but didnít pull the trigger and since then the price seems to have rocketed.

Anyway I now have a couple of pairs of Moscot plastic framed glasses and they are great quality. Pricey but you might get lucky in the sales or on eBay. I got some frames on eBay and took them to the shop to get lenses fitted for $60 while you wait.

They only list 55mm size, which are too big for me also Rod. The RB Oly II's, do they have a slight "wrap" to them ? I have a pair in silver I bought during one of their reissues, and the original ones Fonda wore in "Easy  Rider " seemed to be less wrap around than the pair I bought... Anyway, I have one pair of Moscot's and love 'em.

I love a sheepskin , but this looks cheap  ,sorry Mike .  A sheepskin in my opinion is a quality coat ,you may have to save up for but it will last you years . Ive still got the sheepskin i bought in the early 90s as a 22 year old Skinhead ,its a bit battered granted , but it looks miles better than some cheap reproduction.
Oh, Trust me P/M, I'm not fooling myself that it's a REAL one, but for 200, it'll do till Brooks Bros. reissue theirs which I can get t 60% off... to tell the truth, I'll probably return it now that i think about it, I really don't need another coat this season....

No, GS. it's a faux, totally acrylic machine washable "shearling"... 200 US dollars. but it looks surprising good for the money.
Just ordered this from ZARA:

Bought a faux shearling coat from them 2 years ago, it was pretty good looking (and surprisingly warm)  for the money...

Is real suede that, Mike? Not a fan of those coats, tbh, but it looks good, not the usual skinhead shearling coat.
