Classic styled double breasted mens coat – with fur lining and fur collar. Mother of pearl buttons (from Britex, San Francisco), real russian mink (don’t know the exact english name for it, in german “Russisch Feh”) lining, stepped sleeve lining with thermo wadding. Basic pattern was an old SB coat from Burda from mid 1980s. Altered to get a DB coat with vent, two outside flap-pockets and two inside pockets. All buttonholes are handmade. Slim, classic fit – made from pure cashmere flannel (thicker type) from Loro Piana, Italy. Linned with real fur, with this lining I learnt how to sew fur. Purchased extra a fur sewing machine. Furs were purchased in Sankt Petersburg last easter – will have the first viewing in St. Petersburg, Russia.
100% Loro Piana grey cashmere flannel, mother-of-pearl buttons.
