Ok, so there are other photos I COULD have used to illustrate this new coat commission. But why would I use any of those when I could use this one where I look like a weird retro-futuristic lech peeing on my own studio floor?
The coat is like my other 1950s style tropical coats. Classic mac influenced design, separate back yoke with back inverted pleat, 3/4 length sleeves and shawl collar. I am unfortunately not a contortionist so couldn’t take a photo of the back but you can see the design in other pictures in my profile.
