    All those Benjamins go 100% to charity (we cut a check at the end, so there are no fees whatsoever along the way, to anyone), so don't hold back.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Auction 8: A Lovat tweed bespoke coat from @David Reeves
    starts immediately, ends 8 p.m. PST, Tuesday, Dec 12.​

    Next up is something everyone wants in their wardrobe - a fall and winter stalwart. the tweed coat. And in this case, wearing a coat by @David Reeves , you'll be in damn fine company, alongside bonafide badasses like Bane (Tom Hardy) and Walter White (Brian Cranston), both of whom have been outfitted by Reeves.

    You could be stepping out onto the red carpet, or standing in judgement over a prone Batman (seriously, something I'd love to get to do.)

    As for all these auctions, 100% of the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (www.rmhc.org), an organization that helps house and feed the families of children who have to travel for medical care. It's an incredibly stressful and emotionally draining time for families, and financial issues associated with loss of time at work, only compound those stresses. The Ronald McDonald Houses do their best to alleviate that stress by providing food and shelter and a home away from home for these families. I know that during this time, there are many worthy charities to support, and we really appreciate your taking part in these charity auctions.

    The retail price of this bespoke coat is $3500 We will start the bidding at 1/2 of the retail, or $1750. The bidding will go by increments of $100. Good luck, big shooters.

    Please bid generously to help the Ronald McDonald House.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi guys,

    For people out of state I can make in stock sizes or I can minimize fittings but this is a real bespoke coat with a pattern made, with a hand basted try on fitting and all made in New York, fitted by myself and with a style/cloth consultation with myself.

    I will make you virtually any kind of coat you may wish from my rather large collection of Lovat tweed. (I quite fancy a blade runner 2049 style collar).

    Feel free to have a look at my site to have a look at the different kinds of coats we make if you would like some inspiration.

    This is a coat that can last you a lifetime and still keep going, happy bidding.

    Best,

    Dave.
