THIS IS A SANYO NEW YORK MEN'S overcoat in like new condition. It is charcoal with a button-out lining, extra buttons and an anti-magnetic cell phone saftey pocket! Style #PR232.
Here's an article about SANYO Fashion House taken from the New York Times:
The weary business traveler trying to juggle cell phone and hand-held computer might soon be a less common sight -- at least when it rains.
Sanyo Fashion House -- the New York subsidiary of Sanyo Shokai, the largest clothing maker in Japan -- has designed a line of raincoats that have seven special pockets for gadgets. It says the new design was the result of extensive market research that indicated far more of its customers were business travelers than had previously been thought and that a large number carried more than one electronic device.
Sanyo's fall line of men's coats each feature inside pockets specifically designed for a cellular phone, a Palm hand-held machine or other digital device with accessories as well as plane tickets, sunglasses, wallets and gloves. To avoid confusion, each is labeled with a picture indicating the purpose. (The two outside pockets are standard-issue catch-alls, without pictographs). Several women's coats are similarly configured.
Christopher Champlin, Sanyo's national sales manager, said the cell phone and P.D.A. (personal digital assistant) pockets had antimagnetic shields to prevent shock from static electricity and as protection from radio waves.
While the digital-appliance pocket will surely accommodate models other than Palms, Sanyo has a promotional agreement with Palm, and the pockets for the devices are labeled ''Designed for Palm Handhelds.'' The men's coats cost from $195 to $2,500; women's coats are slightly less.
The new coats mark a new design direction for Sanyo, which has been gradually adding pockets since 1999, when every coat had the standard two pockets. ''You always see guys with two overstuffed pockets,'' Mr. Champlin said. ''Now they can spread their gadgets around.'' LAURIE J. FLYNN
