It's very similar to a peacoat but was issued to ground troops. I like this iteration with storm collar and large pocket flaps.
At 28 oz, it is overkill in most cities.
I like the weight of the grey one on the right. Much more wearable. If only Fox made it in olive/fawn!
I am thinking of getting Gennaro Paone to make me a mid thigh overcoat. The design would probably be based off of a Jeep coat and it will be worn over sport jackets and sometimes a suit. I really like these twill Fox overcoatings. They are around 20-27 oz, mix of lambswool and Shetland wool. The grey one on the right is lighter in weight and the twill is less prominent than the other two. Any suggestions on the colour I should go for? Colour in the photo below is...
22oz jacketing? I had one of the original LL Best of Both (think it was 20oz). In retrospect, it should have been made into a mid thigh overcoat.
What's the design and composition of the cloth in the middle?
If you are in town, feel free to come in to have a look at the real thing.
I don't think so.
Gennaro is back in Hong Kong from March 18-20. Please PM me if interested. Thanks.
While an unlined sleeve could catch, an unlined back won't. Every bit of breathability help when you use such garments in warm environment IMHO. By the way, it is easy to have the back converted from half-lined to fully-lined. It is a lot more work going the other way round.
