So I threw on my modern Duffle Coat (more about it in a future post) and trudged out the door.
Beneath the Duffle I wore a mid-1930s 'English drape' cut (more on this in a future post) sport coat and a late 1930s wool tie. Needless to say, the sport coat fits like a glove and I love how the English drape cut looks on me. It is one of my best fitting jackets. The lapels have great shape to them and the caramel buttons are easy to look at.
The jacket is made of fairly heavy weight wool that has a pretty unique pattern to it. Nothing like playing with three patterns in one outfit.
