I'm with the short/cropped people. Dark grey or navy.

Water resistant fabric is a must for me also.

On another note, I don't think single breast would be too bad. This coat (which pic redgrail posted a few weeks back) looks fine to my eyes:

I never did find anything like that, so here's your chance to fulfill my dreams, MJK...

def waterproof, double breasted, and im a fan of the shorter cut (peacoat length)....personally i cant wear long coats out because i just feel awkward (being younger), so mid thigh would be ideal. what would the price be like?

Not too sure of the price. It really depends on the fabric we end up using. We will be ordering a bunch of swatches and she what we can get...

Even if I were living in LA more, I'd STILL want something water-resistant more than just for a drizzle. Honestly, GS, how often does it "drizzle" in LA? It either comes down in buckets or not at all. Making this trench for light rain seems as pointless as wearing a black bandana around one's neck when it's not even hot.

I'm gonna look into my crystal ball and say $150. But then due to my recent licensing/trademark bargaining you'll have to tack on another $25 since it'll undoubtly have my name somewhere on the trench, preferably behind the left breast pocket.

I'm with the idea of making this a DB. If the coat's going to be water resistant to begin with than it really should be DB to help keep out the water.

I also don't like the idea of a longer trench. Remind me too much of "The Matrix" or "Maltese Falcon;" if you want a classic length, get a classic trench.

It's like you guys enjoy getting wet...

I want a functional trenchcoat that looks good, so +1 on the water resistant/proofing. And yeah, robin pretty much summed it up. What to add? Under 3 c-notes would be good.

Short trenches are retarded like tight bandanas.

I don't really want a classic trench. And I'm not really even talking classic length, just a liiiiiiiiitle bit longer to help mitigate the wet pants syndrome. It's funny, for all those concerned with functionably water-resistant fabric, what's wrong with having a more functionably water-resistant length?

For my part, thighs and knees aren't particularly a problem when it's raining. It's the lower leg/shins. And unless we're talking about a full-length duster, nothing's gonna help with that.

damn $150 would be great price.... well said sauce, its mainly in the ankles, the thigh/shins wont really change it.... well maybe he could make it two lengths? cropped/long....? im excited for a waterproof trench tho

Just as a rough guess, I think we are talking about $200-$250...
post #45 of 175
price wise i was originally thinking $300-$350 considering the price points of other MJK stuff..

$150 would be crap quality material im sure...
