    The coat is beautiful. The outfit as a whole is def. my style; doesn't quite match, but works anyway...

    As for the sleeves outside the coat...I have done the same with a slim fitting trench of my own from Eddie Bauer that would either bunch my sleeves of pop them out, I prefered to have them popped out aswell.

    I REALLY like the coat.

    Is that trench? From the picture it looks like a wool coat, not a trench. It's one of the nicer looks you've shot, though.

    Well it's definitely a double-breasted coat and not a trench, I do really like it. It's a very military-influenced style.

    definitely a nice military coat. I would like to see how it looks closed, and if he can still move or breathe when fastened [​IMG] !luc

    Yeah, the problem with slim DB coats like that, as I recently learned, is that even if you can button them up, once you start walking the tails get jumbled up and it doesn't look so good.

    Bad for style, but when the enemy is shooting at you, who cares what you look like?

    Trenches should have a belted bit.

    But the coat is quite nice, although the outfit doesn't particularly work together, I feel.
