Bespoke Overcoat - Page 13

post #181 of 233
Manton, on the overcoat from your OP did you get a breast pocket? Do you know if there is a difference between the formality between DB's with or without, or if one is more "classic"?

collar has to be adjusted
cuffs to be added

I like the pocket placement. Looks just right

Will there be 4 or 6 buttons?

I did. I would say that a breast welt makes it slightly more elegant. Can't say exactly why.

The balance of that jacket is stunning, button point is spot on, skirt balances the shoulders beautifully, the lapels are just right, same as the quarters. The look of the jacket is dynamic, if you know what I mean. Looking forward to the completed jacket.

Any opinions on the Drapers overcoating book? Eyeing one of the 500g blues (more of a topcaot weight really).

That's a pretty sweet sport coat. Polo RL has a similar pattern currently in their stores, a giant brown and beige houndstooth.

That is indeed sad news. I am seriously considering copying this woolen tweed and commissioning it with Breanish Tweed. According to T4 they should be able to replicate. Would need a few members to join though. Anyone interested please PM me.

Is there such of a thing as a "neapolitan" overcoat. With all lapped seams and spalla shoulders and such? If so does the front darts still drop to the hem? confused.gif It seems that with their climate they would have more of a shorter driving coat, or just tweed SC.

Ask Ed - he's had a couple made up by NSM.

Delivered in time for winter - Steed 6x4 bespoke overcoat, with pleated rear vents. The cloth is a 20oz pure wool from (I think) Harrisons
