Out of curiosity what internal pockets have you ordered?
I've gone for a full pocket on each side and a pen pocket on the left. Through the Autumn/Winter I go racing quite a lot, which often involves a "small" amount of gambling, so having my trusty Montblanc handy is quite useful!
Looking forward to photos!
Very nice - hope you enjoy the process and looking forward to updates!
A couple of mine.
The Taub coat is a thing of beauty. Just as striking in appearance when buttoned up. Love how the collar transitions when buttoned up. Very interesting website and work this guy is producing. Thanks for the link.
Thank you very much for the links and pictures, guys!
Feel free to add more while we wait for updates to OPs project
Being a native Norwegian I am starting to feel like the majority of my budget should be allocated to great coats
Right, apologies for the delay, but the cutter for my coat has been ill for quite while, so my tailor has been unable to push on with the coat
However, finally had the first fitting last week and it's looking very tidy, shoulders brought in a touch, bit more waist suppression but otherwise it's pretty bang on! Sadly no photos but will try to get some at the next fitting when we sort out buttons and such like!
You mean the coats worn by the officers in this photo? :
I have something similar from Inervertere which I bought in 1980 or so when I lived in Chicago.
It is very heavy melton with a full belt and cut loose like a trench coat. O'Connells offers something
similar in tweed.
^^^Yeah, along those lines but without the epaulets and belt. GEtting worried that winter will be over before it arrives!
Lord Londonberry (with his hands in his pockets), wears Jodphur boots
Add some Astrakhan to the lapels and sleeve cuffs and they look even more elegant
is the coat finished yet?
^^^Nope, still waiting (cutter has been ill)
Jodphur boots and the very narrow (jodphur) riding breeches that go with them. Cool.
The Brits looked good going to war. My guess is that this photo dates from 1939 or 1940
