I am having a camel hair polo coat made (Ulster collar, patch pockets(mailbox for lack of a better term), half belt, 6x3, cuffed-sleeves, below knee length. My question is and I hope not too stupid: what size buttons (in mm if possible) would suit the coat? The pockets are going to be oversize as are the lapels (not certain if oversize is the right word but let's say not small but not gargantuan). Thank you.
Question on polo coat half-belt (martingale??). Is the fabric of the belt sewn to the coat only at the outer ends of the belt or sewn along the coat to the point where the two pieces are buttoned? Most likely I have mangled my question.
