    Hey everyone. I want this exact coat worn by Denzel Washington in Training Day. If I cant find the exact one he has I'll have to go a tailor and show him pics and then he might not even get it right.
    Anyone know the make? Thanks,
    MasculineMan

    Believe it or not, it looks almost exactly like a Brooks Brother car coat I bought about five years ago - was on sale at the BB outlet.

    I can't wear it anymore because I've lost a lot of weight, but the leather is still the best I've ever had in a jacket - absolutely buttery soft and smooth.

    I think I saw a bloke in Marks and Spencer buying this exact coat, I couldn't say for sure because this was a long time ago. I think they might be using the same one for this movie though. [​IMG]

    Thats what I like though, that baggy look. Do you really think it would be better tighter around the torso? I have one like that. Do you think thats better?

    i believe its baggy because he was going for a gangster look.

    I have a very similar jacket, its a Calvin Klein, however its a 3-button.

    I had it trimmed up in the waist, i'm a skinny guy so baggy jackets look like hell on me.

    Talk to Peter. He can damn near make anything. Did a custom job for me - very similar to the Training Day coat - and cost me about $650.

    Peter and his wife are great people.
