Tweed, Flannel, and Melton Coats

We make some of the best coats in the world.  What is more every coat is custom made.

We can make a coat with the exact style of pockets, style of lapels, length, and fit that you desire.

The pictures show some of our favorite recent coats.

The featured coat is a black cashmere greatcoat that is double-breasted with wide lapels, a broad collar that flips up, a pleat in the upper back and three pleats on the skirt.

The coat weighs a full 5lbs and has a plush luxurious hand and slight sheen.

One of the back pictures catches the coat blowing out in the wind (which is a magnificent look).

We can make hundreds of variations on this coat, changing the pockets, the back details, the fabric, length, stitching, or can design something totally from scratch.

The second coat featured is an inverness coat cut from a medium grey donegal tweed.

This caped coat is a modern take on the traditional inverness with relatively slim panels, wide sleeves, and a drop shoulder.

The cape is also detachable for those times when you don’t want to carry the extra weight.

The third coat pictured is a plaid hunting jacket.

This jacket was made for a customer who loved vintage 1930s style shirt jackets, but wanted something with a slimmer fit, a concealed zipper and storm flap, and a full satin lining.  Inverness Coat

Every part of this jacket has a double layer of wool coating.  The upper body has the cape.  The lower front is made a double layer with wool pocket bags, and the back again has a full wool underlayer that forms a long pocket.

The left breast pocket is separated into compartments for shotgun shells (or pens, tire gauges, nail sets, etc).

The result is a vintage look jacket that is completely and utterly warm and insulated and has a luxurious feel to it.

Different types of fabrics are perfect for different coats and three of the most common types of coating fabrics are tweed, melton, and flannel.

Tweed is made from relatively unfinished wool yarn and has a slightly fuzzy appearance–the grey coat above is a birdseye tweed.

Plaid Hunting JacketFlannel has a soft brushed appearance and is what the plaid hunting jacket is made from.  Melton is a deeply felted coating fabric, that is heavier, denser, and more water resistant than tweeds and flannels.  This is what the black coat is made from.

So when you write us to have us start working on the perfect coat, tell us everything that you can think of about your climate, the types of pockets you like, how often you will wear the coat, and your sense of style and we will get together the best fabrics and design something just for you.
