Hello all,

Thanks to some constructive advice from some forum posters I have thrown out my idea of creating a Chinese-collared overcoat from the 4 meters of black cashmere that I have and am now toying with more western designs. My current drawing is of a SB with a high collar and broad lapels. I'm not certain of the proper name for the lapel as it is not quite a point, nor is it a notch... it resembles the lapel on my WWII American Navy pea coat. I've also included a ticket pocket in this drawing, but realize that I've yet to see any contemporary overcoats with such a detail.

I'd really appreciate any input on people's favorite overcoat/topcoat design elements, as well as any suggestions as to websites that I might peruse for ideas.

Thank you for any and all help,


Budget Dandy
