Thoughts

_______________________________________________________

Cloth

The double faced cashmere drapes elegantly with weight. 

 

Lining the cape

As the cloth is double faced I opted no lining for a slimmer silhouette.

 

Softer lines vs more structured 

The shoulder structure on the left gives a more military sharp silhouette whereas the right coat appears softer. 

 

Belt loose or fixed

To avoid fabric pulling the belt is to be loose not stitched fixed to the coat. 

 

Buttons

For a subtle elegant finish the buttons are fabric covered buttons.
