A coat made with cashmere

Added Feb 10, 2012

Cologne, Germany






Hello at all :)

This coat has been finished yesterday. The fabric is a black cashmere and for the pockets and the lapels I’ve used a grey twisted new wool fabric, which actually made the edge processing a bit difficult because both fabrics did’nt act in harmony.

As lining, my usually personal solution. Rather silly, you can still see the chalk on that fotos…

Unfortunately, this coat is not for me. The patern is drafted by using a mix of Mller, Einheitssystem and somebody else which wrote an article in one of the old Rundschau-Magazines about a solution which will help working out a patern to somebody how suffers from round shoulders. Worked quite well.

So long

    Hallo Basti

    Eine wundervolle Jacke. Herzliche Gratulation. Super Stoffwahl und das rote Futter ist das i-Tüpfchen. Sehr schöne saubere Verarbeitung. Zu schade, dass Sie die Jacke nicht selber tragen werden.

    Grüsse aus der Schweiz, Brisehuus

    Hello Basti, it’s just WOW!!! I love the shape of the pockets. I am very jalous of this kind of perfection and think that I won’t reach this level ever, but I keep trying. You are educated as a tailor, aren’t you? I will spend the weekend in Remscheid and maybe make a trip to Cologne. greatings from Rotterdam

      Thank you Martin…please… don’t say thinks like that! Of course you will become a very good tailor. Although you are already!!! I’ve just mentioned month ago a few tipps to your work, so that will come out almost more professional.

      No, I don’t have a tailor’s education….. unfortunately… I just spended 4 years in a tailor’s shop. But I would love to start a classical formation and I will start as soon as somebody will care for me :)

      I wish you a nice trip to cologne, but take warm clothes with you! Its cold outside… sing

      So long

      I said: " I like very much, it is very beautiful with this collar(pass), beautiful work! " (Needs that I think of writing in English, it is more understandable for all!!! Sorry!)
