This coat is made out of a 100% wool fabric. The inspiration for it came from my own needs, and so I designed it for myself. I have a hard time finding the right size and style for clothing, especially the length. I hate the idea that most of the coat styles are so boxy and colorless like uniforms; I also hate that the sleeves of coats usually too long and often cover the cuffs of shirts, getting in the way of typing.
Later on, one of my guy friends borrowed this to wear and I found out that this coat ilooks way better on him than I. This coat really opened up my mind about androgynous style.
Designed and sewn by Jen Wai
