The Big Drape Coat

Added Aug 26, 2011

by urbandon

Sydney, Australia






Big draped coat from one of my favorite fabric- wool crepe. The coat has a big hood and a built-in scarf that closes the coat around your neck. The front is curved in reflection of the scarf shape. Lean sleeves. It’s a winter coat for sure and weighs a tonne.

Casual, Other, Steampunk

    Drape that crepe!!!

    Menswear needs more sensual folds and softer textures. We’re not all about things nubby or distressed.

    The built-in scarf makes terrific sense.

    Congatulations on an outstanding creation!

      Thank you. I think there are more than a few guys tired of the same old rubbish that the mainstream designers drag out year after year.

    Very cool! And it looks totally comfortable. I can imagine wearing it, being totally wrapped up in a warm bubble, during all those autumn storms that will be coming up here, soon..!
