We have one balmacaan here in size S, in navy-grey, but with a herringbone pattern. It has a melton half-lining. It was made last year. The cloth isn't as heavy as this year. It didn't make it onto the site, but is available for purchase if anyone might be interested. Again — it's a size S, but since the cloth is lighter than this year's balmacaan, could conceivably fit someone who is size M (if they didn't layer much underneath or like a slimmer look).
Cheers Paul! I did recently pickup the new Chesterfield, so will wait with bated breathe for a double breasted overcoat...even if it is years away as it may be.Thanks for the question!
We haven't made either before, no. Both styles are I guess a little outside our wheelhouse, although since our wheelhouse is close to bursting (to mix metaphors) I suspect we'll try our hand at one of the other sooner or later.
I suppose the tielocken is a bit like a polo coat, and our version of the Chesterfield takes certainly elements from that genre of dress coats, too ... so I feel like a great coat would be more likely, at least first. I must've idly compiled a long list of ideas for a great coat over the years, but nothing has really coalesced into something I'm sufficiently excited about to develop further. Not yet, anyway. They do run the risk of theatricality, in my opinion, so I suspect our first line of attack would be to tamper that.
But that'll all be years away, anyway!
We are currently developing a stockman / duster coat, on a very slightly related big coat note. Maybe for release late next year if it goes to plan. A nice wide one-piece raglan sleeve for the first time in what feels like years, and a little trompe l'oeil for the pockets.
