Best Coat Ever

L.L. Bean Cotton-lined field coat. They wear well, the price is right ($90) and the style is subtantially unchanged for the least 86 years:

Originally designed for hunting, it's built to withstand the briars and branches of the thick Maine woods. Made of best-grade two-ply 10 oz. cotton canvas, washed to feel broken-in and treated to repel moisture and stains.

Underarm gussets and bi-swing shoulders let you move and reach with ease. Sewn-in lining: cotton in body, nylon in sleeves. Five pockets with enough room to carry a day's essentials. Collar and cuffs are 100% cotton 16-whale corduroy.

I agree, but I also like a waxed cotton finish.

Have one of those too -- Filson Tin Cloth Packer Coat >>

Expensive. Probably worth it, as I suspect it will still be good when I am dead.
