Description

They say that in my country, all people look like they´re going for a holiday in the mountains. It´s a kind of true, I admit. Most people you meet in the street wear jeans, skiing jackets and trekking boots.

Dissatisfied with this attitude, I made a trenchcoat for my four-year-old son. I used basic panels from some Burda jacket, I extended them and I designed all the flaps, saddles, belts, pockets, the collar etc. I´m quite happy with the result and so is my son. Hope he will keep his affection for classic gentleman wardrobe :-)
