Any specific reason why yours will (not) have that detail? Clearly, no critique; am contemplating this as a future coat, but am not sure about that upper back detail. Why is it there like that instead of a one piece back?

We did look at it, but I decided I wanted a cleaner looking belted back. If we did it like Taub's, then the eye would be drawn away from the belt and would create a bit of a sloppy look imo.

Thanks for posting NYR. Even though I wouldn't opt for your chocies, I love these kinds of threads. SF needs more like them.

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts here; agreed.

What kind of coat are you getting? Sorry if this has been discussed before.

If you're not in direct sunlight and you are wearing any sort of business suit people might not notice much difference between a dark charcoal/midnight navy.
I am doing a 6x2 DB, with some sewn in pleats and such. Inverted box pleated center vent. We'll see.

This, I decided to go for a clean back though. Center vent.

Looking forward to seeing some pictures of it. Sounds great! I love DB coats. How long are you going to have it made?

post #101 of 119
Half past my knee and the floor. It might be too long. Frank thought it was as first fitting, but we will see on Friday when I go in for round 2. I had to practically put him in a headlock to get him to make it past my knee.

Interesting. I personally wouldn't get a coat that goes past my knees but I am also not too tall and I think it makes me look even shorter. shog[1].gif

Looking forward to it.

I hate short coats. It is "in" right now to have short coats, but walking in frigid temperatures for long distances in NYC they are absolutely useless. I am also getting the waist down lined in flannel.

I guess if the temperatures are that bad in NYC I think it is a good investment to go for the details you mentioned. Having the coat partly down lined sounds pretty awesome.

No, no from the waist to the hem lined in flannel.
