• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Not a corduroy sport coat/blazer but a 3/4 length corduroy City coat.

One that has some weight to it and would function almost like a peacoat.

Been looking every where and can't find one. Any ideas?

Thanks, all.

That's pretty darn close.

Actually saw the style I'm looking for worn by Colin Farrell in "The Recruit"

You are so welcome for the pics. Sorry to say I am a beginner so I am not sure what Wale corduroy is. I have seen wider corduroy in my lifetime and thinner but it is a heavier warmer coat.

It is a Squire made in England by Invertere LTD. Newton Abbot.

100% cotton
Lining 100% wool

But I can't find the size tag on this for the life of me! Any suggestions on where it should be?

It's in excellent shape accept for two button holes need to be reinforced and there were decorative bands at the bottom of the sleeves with one button on the end of them they are gone but if you didn't know they were suppose to be there you wouldn't even know.

All the buttons are carved too.

Help on were to find the size tag by anyone would be appreciated.

Have a good one!

I have an Invertere Squire coat and consider it my favorite coat. If you look inside the upper left pocket there should be a tag sewn into the lining of the pocket with the order number and the size.
