Tried on this coat just for the heck of it last weekend at the MaxMara store. Mon Dieu...The cut! The fabric! The contruction! Those sleeves! I feel as though I've had a glimpse into another world entirely, and I may never be the same again.
(Even mon mari, who is usually mostly indifferent to clothing and fashion in general thought it looked great on. It looks amazing without the belt, too. No, I didn't buy it, nor am I seriously considering. If I lived in a cooler climate it would be an amazing investment piece, but here in LA opportunities to wear would be minimal.)
