    speaking from a man’s piont of view, I LOVE this coat. I think there is nothing wrong with the fit, the fabric is girly but its not like you HAVE to use the fabric in the picture. I would make this in just a plain black or slight pinstripe, I think the design is bold enough to be done without a pattern. I will have to try this someday!

    This is interesting— I like the idea of a men’s coat pattern, but I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about this when I saw it. I showed it to my boyfriend, who is a pretty snazzy dresser and has no fear of fashion-y details or slim cuts in general, but he said it looked like a man wearing a women’s coat. I’ve been trying to figure out why it has that vibe because it actually has a pretty straight, masculine silhouette. I think the blackwatch plaid might be part of it, but I think the other thing is that the buttons only come down to the waist, which makes it look like skirted, especially when the model has his hands in his pockets. I think for those who are finding the coat too feminine, if you extend the rows of buttons down to the hips or further, that would probably solve it.

    I like this coat, but think it is having a bit of an identity crisis. The tartan fabric is far too girly, and the style is too fitted. Most men, certainly in the UK, only wear fabric overcoats formally, over suits or jackets, and there is certainly no room for a jacket under this one. In fact, it looks too tight on your model.

    It reminds me of a Prussian soldier coat (circa 19th c perhaps?). I like this contemporary interpretation!

    Smart. It would look good in a plain fabric, too, but it’s nice to see a plaid. Too many black and gray coats out there!

    it’s a bit too bulky, and the fabric choice is funky….. but thank you for the pattern, ill see if i can make it happen
