Lost GORGEOUS expensive grey leather coat

Post by MissB » Fri Sep 20, 2013 9:14 am

On the night of the burn, my friend lost his VERY expensive leather jacket. It is a steel grey lambskin with silk lining.
It has a curved "kimono-esque" collar band that goes all the way around from hem to hem.
Assymetric exposed zipper closure
1 zipper chest pocket
2 large pockets at front hip - 1 has a smaller zipper pkt on the outside
sleeves have leather lacing at the cuffs
there is a kick pleat (vent) opening at the center back hem

On Man burn night, he had it bundled on the back of his bicycle. We both feel like we saw it still there when we all had our bikes parked at 2:00 next to the Fractal Art Gallery Dome. After that, we were riding through white out and sand traps so it was pretty arduous. We rode a bit inside of the esplenade, since the esplenade was so deep with dust. So we were on open playa (not on the street). We rode a straight line/diagonal from 2:00 to 5:00 and rode up 5:00, turning right on G till we got to our camp at 5:20. Once we got there we realized the coat was gone. Must have fallen off the bike somewhere along that ride.
I imagine someone found it along the 2:00 inside of the horseshoe. Thanks for all your help in getting it back! Please contact maya@clademenswear.com.

Do not bring anything to Burning Man that you can not afford to lose

Unfortunately someone who found this might think, wow, anyone who brought this out here must not really care that much about it....

From someone who just happens to work for a men's clothing concern? Are we sure this isn't backwards advertising?
