Purple coat. Would you wear this? I'm not sure I would, but it's cool.

@lordsuperb purple coat. would you wear this?

I'm pretty adventurous in regard of colours, but would never wear this one, although the cloth looks superb on its own.

One of my "grail" garments. An Oxxford Clothes Polo Coat in a plush heavyweight camelhair. It is made completely by hand and possibly the heaviest coat I own. I like wearing it with jeans, sweater and boots.

It features raw edged horn buttons--which I like but I might have them swapped out as I am worried it'll wear down the handmade buttonholes. The thick cloth also make the pockets splay out a bit more than I would like so I've just been tucking them in. I have noticed the back of the collar is starting to show some wear which I guess comes with the territory of camelhair.

I love the way the lapel rolls on this style of coat. Also featured is my dog in his own bespoke coat.

Looks perfect! Was this a order from oxxford? Or a thift/ebay snag?!
