Bespoke Greatcoat in Tweed Herringbone: G&H No.1, 2013


  1. Elegant, beautiful, definitely a sculpture. Thank you for sharing.

  2. What sort of reinforcement/interlining do you use on this sort of collar?

  3. Hi Anon...

    Are you a professional or student of tailoring? Did you see the set of pictures I posted in October, showing the stages I took when making this collar? I did something similar last February too, when I made the Barrel-Back Overcoat. I hope they give some idea how I construct this kind of Great Coat 'Stand & Fall' collar.

    It largely depends on the cloth, what type of canvasses I use. On both these occasions I used a regular stiff collar canvas on the bias, and a couple of layers of soft felt 'domette', just to give the collar some sponginess and strength. These were then loosely basted to the under-collar.

    Hope that helps,


  4. Hi David,
    Do you know where I could buy this wonderful coat?
    I thank you in advanced
