I previously posted a quick iPhone photo, and I did promise some better images, so here goes.
I have given it very generous pocket depths, and it’s really nice and snug to put your hands in the vertical pockets.
I decided to keep some of the tailoring on the collar down to a minimum so it can be worn as a reversible collar – ie it can be flipped up at the back.
The problem, however, was the need to flare the cuff, which gives sharp angles on the vent corners.
I drew the pattern very carefully, so it wasn’t too much of an issue – I just had to keep my wits about me.
Although the cuff is vented, it doesn’t have any buttons or buttonholes, which is unusual.
The rear and front storm vents went well, as did the pockets.
I designed the coat to properly fasten double-breasted (see below, top left), though we haven’t yet seen The Doctor wearing it this way.
I think it’s a bit more practical than a Tennant Coat. Being knee-length it doesn’t look unconventional and it will be nice to have a coat that can be properly done up.
With winter coming, I’m looking forward to wearing it out and about.
