Ok, I was freezing this weekend. I think I am going to get an overcoat. I am not too sure where to start for fabric. I probably wnt about 700g fabric, but since it will be my first, and likely only for some time I want something versatile. I wear mostly solids so I am thinking solid, maybe, I don't know. Navy? Charcoal? I am confused and stressing about this for sure.

Does anybody know if Tip Top in Brooklyn has a decent selection of overcoat fabric options? Or should I start elsewhere?

patrick, I have a spare length of Harrison 700g navy herringbone. I will sell it at my cost, PM me if you want it. (It's not made any more FWIW, they still make that pattern but they dropped the weight to 600g). All wool.

I had an overcoat made of this fabric (760 gram, 25 oz.) last year:

Really?  I guess I got one of the last bunches when I placed my order with Tom Mahon last month for an overcoat in that fabric.

Now that is the way to do some overcoat patch pockets. Belt or martingale?

Is there an app for that? To look like the Grinch? Or is just pure Photoshop skilz? I'm quite envious of people with Photoshop skilz. There are just too many functions and too many ways of getting the same result.
