Nice job. Is that a blue and black plaid (vs black and white). I love the combination of blue/black, or blue/navy. I agree also about roomy coats, and am working my way up to one. I know you will enjoy your coat in your cold weather area, congratulations.

What a fun coat. I am with you on the loose outer coat thing. There is nothing worse than it being freezing cold.... and having on layers of too tight jackets/coats.

Besides being utterly beautiful, your coat is sophisticated, distinctive and so intentional. Your directional placement of the dominant tracks of your plaid are showcasing the architect in you. The designer buttons are breathtaking and well worth the expense. (When your time permits, please don't forget to instruct us in the Spanish Snap Buttonholes, which are so intriguing. Would also love to see the Bobbie Carr patch pocket installation.) I love your coat! -Lily

I am impressed you tackled that plaid like a pro. What a nice jacket that is you have made.

Great job with the plaid. I agree with you on roomy coats. I hate having sausage arms!

Fantastic coat! Is there any way we can persuade you to add some detail shots? C'mon, you architects love the details....
