I've just been in Berlin where the temperature was -8C, rising to -4C, wearing a Gieves and Hawkes British warm that I bought from you a few months ago. Striding along near the Hackescher Markt yesterday morning, I went past an American tour party with a British guide. He shouted across to me, "Splendid British warm, sir. Traditional coat, ladies and gentlemen. Nice to see an Englishman dressed properly." They were all wearing brightly-coloured synthetic clothes that I'm sure kept them equally warm, but made them look like toddlers. (I was also wearing a tweed suit and a homburg). Thought you might like to know. (Incidentally, though it pains me to say it, the Gieves coat seems superior to the one it has replaced - a Cordings British Warm that I bought new 20 years ago).
