This is a melton wool toggle coat I made from Vogue 8452, an out-of-print mens coat pattern from 1992. It’s underlined with a plaid wool-cashmere blend. Great fun to put together though time-consuming and sometimes challenging for sure. Can’t wait to wear it this winter!
More about my coat on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness (MalePatternBoldness.com)
I used a medium weight, charcoal melton wool for the outer layer and a lighter weight, more loosely woven wool-cashmere blend for the underlining. I bought both in the Garment District in NYC (both $10/yd). I splurged on real horn toggles at C&C button on 38th St. — $4 each but worth it.
