Lugosi Jacket

Added Nov 1, 2011

Sydney, Australia






I called this the Lugosi Jacket after someone walked past my market stall and said my clothes look like Vampire wear. I took it as a compliment considering I love Dracula films and HBO’s True Blood is pretty cool (not so much the latest season).

I used the same pattern as…
but made the scarf a hood with leather tassels.

Its made from coated black denim, organic cotton jersey sleeves and wool for hood.

    LOVE IT!!! Nice trick with the stretch sleeves. I warn you… I will pinch that idea one day. Loving the angles on the front. Are there similar on the back? I can’t tell with my monitor. Thanks agian for yet another inspiring piece of mens wear.

      Thanks so much. It isn’t detailed on the back, but thanks for the idea- far too plain at the back.

    For some reason, it reminds me of Count Orlok in Nosferatu. I love all your creations.

    a really great jacket! Chapeau!!! (is it really Lugosi-Style? I dont know because I also know a little about Vampires but I was able to meet “a former Vampire” Ferdy Mayne 1986/1987 at work.)

      Cool! He was in Barry Lyndon, Ben Hur! Guess it’s not really ’ Lugosi-style"…but I do like vampires.

    Hmmm nothing about vampire… I think your style is not so fare away of making some steampunk outfits…

    Love the coat!

    Brilliant use of fabric. I love that the sleeves are jersey and the hood is a scarf. So cool!

      Vampires seemed to have style sorted. Zombies just don’t cut it really. although True Blood werewolves are pretty cool.

    Pretty cool for vampire-wear! Love the front panel seam and the buttoned demi-belt at the back. Once again, cool stuff!

      Men don’t sew? And women don’t sew for men?
      Thanks Ralf!

      Interesting… also for us patternmaker… maybe we could make an arangment with them HAHAHAHA I would love to send them a few men’s pattern so that they can publish them

      they (women from "leserservice bei burda!) have told me, that they are not interested in getting any pattern for men. as there is no “interest” and no “request” for mens pattern! i asked the to chech out, what is going on here at burdastyle.com. but she answered, that this is a complet different thing, as it is the international side and more orientated towards the US market. and burda is producing for germany………..????

      well Ralf… I think she isn’t wrong with her point of view. I don’t know many sewing german men…(well, at least in the area of Cologne) and the sewing ones are those who sews tents, sails or carstuff…. ;) maybe we can make an revolution? ;-)

      I just think we should all learn pattern drafting. Then we can just ignore all the pattern companies.

      Thanks so much. It’s pretty much an exposed facing- but it seems to work.

      Thanks so much. Yes, hood attached. Guess it’s really a ‘hoodie’.
