no, I am not a tailor myself.
I just want to acquire an overcoat for formal attire which is diffrent to the common chesterfield, which is recommended by most authors/ tailors nowadays.
Well, it seems that I have got to go for a bespoke or mtm overcoat since there are no rtw alternatives (at least i know none). Therefore I need as much information as I can get about this type of garment in order to give my tailor a hint what he is supposed to do for me.
I just thought it would speed things up a bit if i can provide a pattern or something, because it seems that none of the available tailors have done something like this for decades.
So my question is not purely techniqual, it is more about the look of overcoats like the Havelock or Inverness and so on. Nevertheless a pattern would help a lot, but I would be satisfied with pictures either.
Hope I did not mess things up too much.
