I&#39;m selling a Jan &amp; Carlos coat that people on this board might be interested in; Jan &amp; Carlos don&#39;t get much hype, but they&#39;re similar to Carpe Diem / LUC in terms of aesthetics. The coat is a heavy black wool with an interesting fastening mechanism: there are two straps on either side of the front of the coat, and the lapels (?) have hooks that connect to the straps.</p>



I&#39;m open to trades, too (if you act before someone bids on ebay); right now, I&#39;m mainly interested in Cloak 04/05 stuff, CCP, and (hold your flames) Thom Browne.</p>



You can see the auction here (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=320048624161).</p>

It seems to be, yes. The seams are all tight (outer seams are covered), the wool seems to be high quality, and the fasteners are all solid. I have a J&amp;C wool hooded sweater that I&#39;ve worn for 3 years and it&#39;s shown no wear.</p>

I would say that it&#39;s slightly more subtle in real life -- the fabric that covers the seams picked up the flash from my camera a bit more strongly than the wool.</p>
