New Topcoat

In preparation for cold weather, I commissioned a new topcoat from our tailor. I've been enjoying it for a month and a half or so now. I've written on topcoats/overcoats previously. My design was for a military topcoat in navy. It is double breasted with epaulets on the shoulders and slanted pockets. The collar can be popped and the lapels folded over and buttoned for particularly cold days. I requested it to be quite fitted: the shoulders are just wide enough for a suit coat to be worn under it comfortably, and the sleeves and waist give a nice silhouette. It goes down to a few inches above the knee. It looks great with a suit and I also love wearing it with more casual attire.
