Best bespoke commission ever? I think so. *** PICTURES ADDED FOR THOSE LACKING IMAGINATION

Just received my vintage tweed greatcoat from Rubinacci. It is a masterpiece. Straight out of 30's war footage. The strangest looking envelope pockets ever seen (like they were bred with rounded patch pockets).

No pictures. Just believe me.

That's why I didn't take photos. It is beyond that.

Show some respect. It is perhaps the most awesome overcoat you will never see.

You just got it? I thought you commissioned it a year or two ago. Is it the same one you posted the picture of the cloth, lining and sketch?

Yeah, man. It took forever. I can't believe how close it came out compared to the design we sketched together. Was sure it was going to turn out a monstrosity, so that's why I didn't really push it along faster.

Also, I couldn't see them for a fitting until we went to London for whnay's wedding.

Just to remind everyone, the gold standard for bespoke:



I will entertain challenges for the crown, but the lack of pics so far bodes poorly.



(Glad it turned out well, Foo.)
