So I thought it timely to take a look at what can be bought for a more modest budget.
At first glance these coats look pretty good, but at closer inspection there are a few shortfalls worth noting if you are looking for something more screen accurate.
- The lower pockets have been confused, and large flap-less pockets are added at the back
- The waistline pocket is too big and crashes the buttons. It should be close, but not that close. The buttons could be moved, and should be in a slight diagonal line, converging at the bottom
- The piping around the edges of the lapels and pocket flaps are not the right colour. It needs to be a real dark brown (almost black) rather than a mik chocolate colour
- The buttons on the back are set too far apart, and the back vent is exactly central, where it should overlap and be off centre
