I posted about the coat below in the making some time ago. I cannot remember when. I also made the disclaimer in my original post that this coat is not truly bespoke, as no fittings were involved. But stylistically, it is my own concept of a classic, full length trench coat. The coat is rubber-bonded cotton, with hand glued and taped seams, rendering the garment impermeable to the penetration of any water. It is a beast for inclement weather, as I can attest from my first wearing last week. The photos here actually show a remake. While I provided correct measurements the first time, there were significant diversions which resulted in poor fit. Because the mistakes were on the maker's side, the remake was at no cost to me. I am now happy with the fit and stylistic details, mostly my own, a new pattern set having been created for me to craft this coat. I thought it worthwhile to show the final outcome.
