Thank you very much for the leads, Mr. Fairbrass! If I have any other comments or info on frock coats should I attach it to an appropriate thread or start a new one?

A mod would need to answer that, but it is always useful to hear product reviews for these kind of shops. Particularly as they are often quite rare to find other than on their own websites.

Just for the record, I ordered something from her a year ago, towards the end of this thread's activity, unaware of the issue.  Although it was late, and she was indeed notoriously bad at replying to communications, to the point where I mentioned going to my credit card company and cancelling the payment, the coat did arrive no more than a month late and was really exactly as I wanted and of good quality.
So a mixed bag, but on the whole I was pleased as well as relieved.
Make of that what you will.

Absolutely fascinating -
out of the blue, thread necromancy is exercised by a unknown new netizen "Lewisian" 
who obtained a login apparently for the sole purpose of making a single post
related to positive spin for a known miscreant....with fuzzy contradicting details:
 - "ordered something"
 - "ordered a year ago"
but... "no more than a month late"

this is remarkably remiscent of the single defensive post by the offender herself (and she never logged in again)
but at least it was not as long and convoluted.

please allow me to express my incredulity as to the veracity of our "new member"  "Lewisian"

I'm going to 'sticky' this thread for future informational purposes - not quite sure why it has not been done already...
