That looks Great! Raincoat fabric doesn't seem like it would be the easiest to deal with, I have never had the patience to try it. That looks super on you. The details look very professional!

Very nice. The lining is especially cute. Traditional trenchcoats, such as Burberrys, which I've owned, do have a lot of apparently pointless features. I can only imagine that originally they had a purpose related to hunting, shooting or fishing, or maybe even military uses, when the coat was first designed.

Trench coats were originally manufactured for the British Arlmy during WW1 and the flap in the front was a place for your cap to go when you removed it. So my Dad told me a British Army veteran. lynne

I didn't know about the cap hiding place, Alfalfa. The extra yoke in the back is just another layer of rainshield, like a rainshield on a tent, I believe.

You all are the best! Thanks so much for all of the info on the yoke and all of you sweet compliments! Yes, Raye Ann, I did wear it in our first rain of the season. :) Super exciting!
