It's All My Fault

But it needs paisleys.
I take the blame for Bandcamp changing their "free download" policy. Basically it's because I've been using Bandcamp to upload rehearsals and recordings for the other guys to hear. Actually, the policy change doesn't affect us because we only have a few downloads anyway (and I suspect that the very few times one of the other members of Tyrannosaurus Mouse actually listens to one of our rehearsals -- ahem -- they're streaming it anyway.)

The Bandcamp policy is way more than fair.  And honestly it's the best service for audiophile recordings too. You upload in full-resolution (typically 44.1kHz 16-bit but you can go higher if you like) and downloads can be in lossless FLAC format. So even classical guys should be happy.

But that's not what's important right now. You can get this French Napoleonic officer's jacket for only 600 British pounds.

But what is underneath?
Other options abound. This is more of a fantasy "pirate" coat for 255 Euros.  The cuffs look a bit big for playing guitar though.

In general there are nice cutaway coats here but they all have regular lapels and I'm specifically looking for a "Mandarin"-type collar.

Brown here , but comes in other colors.
All the best coats are made in the UK seemingly. This one is relatively inexpensive at $271 Euros (but has no collar).
