Every coat that we make is built from scratch and based on a custom pattern that is drafted to fit the needs of the client.
Add a pocket, change the button placement, add a leather undercollar, remove the cuff or just slightly change the profile of the cuff to get the look you want—we can do virtually anything and will sketch ideas until we get the look just right.
One of our specialties is the full length heavy wool coat.
A full length coat is like nothing else for staying warm and looking stylish—the one and the other are both so important to the military heritage of the wool overcoat—-saving one from freezing on winter campaigns and allowing one to look good while riding at the head of the troops.
Many of the fabrics we use are literally the same fabrics in the same weights from the same mills that made fabrics for the British campaigns against Napoleon and for the Union in the American Civil War.
These heavyweight meltons and doeskins don’t pill and hardly wear.
They were designed for an age in which life was short but a good coat would last for several generations.
The grey coat shown in this listing is made from a 25oz wool melton with a Mongolian lamb collar.
The piece is cut with vintage frock or paletot seaming that allows for a highly shaped waist with a skirt that flares at the hips.
The pockets are Edwardian US Marine Corps style and this source of inspiration is repeated in the seamed on cuff detailing.
A narrow back belt and back box pleats complete the look.
Contrast details include white top-stitching, blue buttonholes, a blue undercollar, under pocket flap, and underbelt and a kidney (neck latch) with one grey and one blue side.
