    Nice--what kind of cloth?


    Yeah, the plaid is for the lining. Some Italian make--nothing too special. Might be Zegna or Loro Piana.

    "Military-style" is a bit of a redundant descriptor, as greatcoats are inherently military-style. It's essentially a tweed greatcoat.

    Ahh, you switched to more interesting topics :)!
    I feel inspired to order another overcoat now, something different than my German armour with the crazy double cents ...coincidentally I am on way to Napoli right now. :slayer:

    Rubinacci has some über-cool double sided checks (the infamous overcoat Luca Rubinacco wore at the last winter Pitti was made from one of these), but I guess these would be a bit too much, maybe.

    I assumed he meant (and the drawings back it up) something inspired by a traditional military greatcoat.

    Also, interesting choice of lining. Barbour-esque.

    If you are lining the sleeves with that, I would ask that you please reconsider - it may (will) catch on jacket sleeves!

    Stunning fabric. Also like the way the plaid looks with the herringbone. Interested to hear whether Rubinacci has voiced any concerns about the wool lining catching onto jackets or pants.

    that is what mine will be like
    a bit shorter though
    turnback cuffs
    flapped patch mailbox pockets
    a vent running from between the shoulderblades
    to the bottom of the coat
    belted back

    Yes, I saw those. But then I saw this!


    Yes, along those lines, but with a lower buttoning point. I didn't ask about the lining issue--hadn't thought of it.


    How do you convey "flapped patch mailbox pockets" in Italian?

    I tried the same, but I'm not sure I ultimately got the idea across. I may wind up with rounded flap patch pockets.

    Also known as "envelope pockets" I think. Not sure what it would be called in Italian. Originally from Polo coats, maybe.

    Really looking forward to how this one might turn out. I learnt the hard way when I lined a linen jacket sleeve in shirting cotton - not sure what texture your fabric has so YMMV.
