This is the finished Edwardian leather trench coat. (I wish I could get more clients to send me photos in their leather but such is life!) The coat is pretty classic but has a distinct period gentleman’s look – think The Avengers’ John Steed (with Patrick McNee- updated to today!)
– it’s a more fitted silhouette than is common now. And the larger collar that balances out the double breasted cut adds a great deal of flare. It’s the kind of coat Mick Jagger or David Bowie would have worn in another time – or in their own time.
Think English, Elegant, and a little Edwardian Mod. Def a little Rock ‘n Roll!
The very light leather we used lets my client wear it over tailored suits without adding a lot of bulk and in certain situations he can keep it on inside because it is not heavy and bulky.
This coat went over so well the client’s back for 2 more.
