Details: melton ‘highmere’ body, the back will be a little longer than the 2010 version, sateen lining, removable double-faced inner jacket of quilt-sateen and highmere facings, foxfur collar in natural. NZ leather trim, handmade leather trimmings throughout, including handmade leather drawstring stoppers, horn buttons, grosgrain tape along the button line under the placket. YKK zip closure.
Design features: ‘Visor’ with triangle-stitched leather backing, which folds forward and back to your liking, to extend hood coverage. Folded back, the leather is hidden, pulled forward, the fur is covered from the outside. High-buttoning crown collar buttons up around the mouth for wind protection.
as far as colors go, they will be locked in via the shell color you choose, because there’s a huge mix n match of materials in this thang and it makes matching varsity materials look like child’s play. Seriously, for every color I offer, I gotta run up custom rolls of that sateen quilt at $300/pop, so there’s considerable front-end cost on these things already.
So here are the colors on the Fishtail:
-Black (melton wool ‘highmere’)
-Cracked pepper (95% wool/5% silk)
-Brown (decided on offering this because it’ll share the lining sateen with the cracked pepper)
