Are there any things I should know before getting a tweed coat made? I know there are names and kinds of coats but can I pretty much customise it as I like? I kind of just want a double breasted coat with maybe a half belt and nothing else special. Guess it'd end up looking like a polo coat if I use the fabric I linked though?

Bump. Is this fabric or tweeds of similar weight from them suitable for coating?

Too many pea coats seem short and squat on me.

Thank you!

RTW: Ring Jacket has a pea coat that is a couple inches longer than the standard that you could take a look at http://www.thearmourystore.com/artisans/ring-jacket/outerwear/ring-jacket-navy-wool-10-button-pea-coat

I haven't found anything regarding the exact name of this type of coat either.  I've heard people refer to it as a bridge coat as well but those seem much more than just a couple inches longer than a typical pea coat.

I believe there are normally differences.  Here is Sator speaking about the Dugdale overcoating book from the C&T forum:

 

"...feels a bit softer suggesting a slighter looser weave setting and a subtly napped overcoating type of finish. It is not a shaggy/hairy sort of nap that you see on some overcoatings, just not smooth enough to pass as suiting or jacketing. This sort of weave and finish tends to make an overcoating run warmer..."

Thanks. Do you think this specific fabric would be suitable for coating?

Coincidentally, David Taub had something on his site last week about bridge coats.

That's interesting.  The length here looks similar to that of your standard pea coat based on the relationship between jacket and sleeve length.  I'd be curious to hear what makes this a bridge coat.

My gut is for brown. Is there a reason why you'd prefer grey/ charcoal over some shade of brown?

It's pbooth. Only black shoes. Only charcoal suits?
post #10916 of 12176
Brown first then grey/blue after. No black but charcoal might interesting third option.

Seems like an odd combination (relatively informal tweed but making colors as dark as physically possible). Most good grey tweeds either have their darkest color be something lighter than black or have a very light secondary color to make the jacket resolve to a medium grey or so. Generally with a herringbone pattern but I guess barleycorn could be done in theory.

I have been thinking about the same for the same reasons, most peacoat I've tried on are boxy and short.
My friend just has one made by Bntailor I will check it out when he gets it.
