Although we are called “Denver Dressmakers,” we are quickly becoming a brand that is best known for our custom tailored suits and outerwear for women.

We also run the website www.DenverBespoke.com for men, and have tons of experience crafting highly technical menswear-style garments from some of the finest fabrics in the world.

When you combine this with our ability to actually fit curvier women, you get coats that look incredible and last a lifetime.

We love to make our coats from fabrics that are literally twice as heavy as the cheap fabrics used for department store coats.  This makes for a coat that will actually keep you warm as well.

Recently our clients have been loving the classic styles of the mid-twentieth century trench coat, but with some feminine twists.

Most of the styles pictured feature either a ruched back or back box pleats for a beautifully flared skirt that is comfortable when walking.il_fullxfull.689172464_t8ul

The jewel toned wine and burgundy coats are both made from a heavy weight wool melton fabric and both feature detachable hoods that button on and off.

The darker wine colored coat has a unique fit with top-stitched seams and a high waistline.

The two tweed coats in sterling blue and charcoal are made from gorgeous birdseye tweeds.

Classic Double Breasted Overcoat with Welt Pockets

These coats are both inspired by the awesome coat that Sherlock Holmes wears in the BBC series Sherlock and feature classic English coat details like an upper back pleat and box pleats in the skirt (as on the grey and black coat).

The grey coat features angled welt pockets and a classic double-breasted style.

As soon as I hear from you, I will start sketching ideas and looking for fabrics until we get the perfect style for your tastes.

Every year, we make coats for clients all over the world.  So if you are reading this, chances are, we can make a coat for you.

Even in Plaid for Swank!

So you want something special this Fall and Winter…. Just write to us and ask.

We can make pretty much anything and can make it in your size. When the fit is difficult, we make the jacket in cotton muslin for $100 extra and send that to you for feedback before starting the final piece.

Let us know if you want tweed, or a solid color melton, or even leather or shearling (which cost a bit more). Tell us what colors you like, whether you like zippers or buttons or want a hood or fur trimming.

And we will sketch up some ideas and send swatches until we come up with the perfect thing.

A price of $625 is the average for fully lined woolens and a $100 muslin fitting may also be added for the best custom fit.


Some options may be a bit more and some a bit less, just contact us and we will quote you a price for your project.

The Redingote

Our coats, handmade in Denver, Colorado, can be customized in every way.  You get what you want, the way that you want it whether in wool, leather, corduroy or the fabric of your dreams.

Any type of special size, whether plus size or petite is always available.

But this is one of our most popular style.  A bit Victorian, a bit modern.  When we introduced it in our sportswear store, Vigilante Laboratories, we started selling them immediately and have made dozens of variations to match differing tastes.

Warm and fashionable, this coat is cut in multiple panels for an exceptionally full skirt and a snug upper body.

The word “redingote” represents what the words “riding coat” must sound like to the French, and is the Parisian high-fashion take on English equestrian wear.

Made from soft wool coating and with a classic design, this coat will look great for many many years.
