For next winter (planning ahead, I know) I'm counting on having made up a peacoat, probably in the style of one of these drawings made for Simon Crompton (never mind his end product), and definitely with back pleat and half belt.
Instead of going with melton or something similar I want something with a bit more texture and visual interest and depth. After having seen the LL's first Everest cashmere I signed up for the second run, but it turned out the navy side was much lighter than the first version so I think I'd rather use the caramel side of the cloth for a different purpose. But then I found this 24/24 oz woolen twill coating - do you think it would be suitable?
I have a sample of it and it is a bit coarse, but for a heavy duty peacoat I thought it might be okay. But other suggestions are of course most welcome
Thanks in advance for your inputs!
