    I firmly believe that is the best wearing of a Polo coat that I have seen. Thank you for sharing! ;)

    I've always thought Marylyn looked much better demurring or classically dressed than in the va-va-voom outfits she also wore.

    In general, I'm a less-is-more guy, but also, Marylyn had such a strong womanly vibe, that downplaying it was more effective than emphasizing it.

    Plus, that coat just looks freakin' great on her.

    Good find on the larger versions. Thank you for the kind comment. Also, the female lead wears a polo coat as well - a bit stylish, less classic, but still impressive - unfortunately, I couldn't find any pics of it.

    Here's a collection of overcoats posted on Fed Lounge by one of its members, I'm sure he won't mind me cross-posting it here. Beautiful polo coat in the middle.

    I'm not sure if I'm more jealous of his beautiful coat collection or his gorgeous wardrobe.
