There is no doubt that we make the finest and most unique custom women’s overcoats that can be found anywhere, and each year we make coats for clients all around the world.
The process starts with a sketch.
When we get an email from a client about having a coat made, the first step is to trade a couple emails to discuss the style, the weather where you live, and the durability and hand of various materials that we can mail to you to feel in person.
The style can be anything from a traditional trench coat to a caped inverness coat. Anything from an asymmetrical 1920s style coat to something with a bit of 1960s mod styling.
For materials, we can use a cotton gabardine rainwear material, a handwoven Harris tweed, a heavy wool melton, a napped cashmere fabric or even a fur or a durable and luxurious faux fur (like the materials for the black coat pictured).
Once we have a design and are in the process of working through finding the perfect fabric, we will have you send a few measurements that you take at home (we can mail you a tape if you need one).
Then, depending on the style, we can also make an optional “muslin” of the piece. This is a cotton mock-up that we mail to you to try on. You send us digital pics and your comments and we can revise the style as much as needed to get exactly the look you want.
Because we still do everything the traditional way and make each coat from start to finish here in our studio in Denver, Colorado, we can get exactly the fit and the style you want, no matter where you are or how different your body is from the clothing that is usually found in the shops.
If you would like to get started on a custom coat, just contact us and we can start working on some sketches.
