Car coat, made in London, with weatherproof ripstop — a paradoxically very light (7oz) but very strong aramid cloth from Yorkshire — and with horn buttons from the West Midlands.
The car coat fits to size, and is intended to be worn as an overcoat — i.e. over a shirt and jacket. Go down if a t-shirt or shirt is more likely. Going up a size is not recommended, as the shape of the coat has one foot squarely in tailoring — e.g. a round shoulder — and so will look overly wide and bulky in any size larger than the right one. The wooden chap here, for instance, is a 38 through-and-through, and couldn't countenance anything other than S.

So they say
Just want to let you know that I have received the car coat, it is absolutely beautiful. Perfect length, lovely buttons, and nicely fitted as expected. I really like those iconic two-way pockets: they are very useful, in either storing items or sliding in my hands sideways, and they create a more casual look. A very happy purchase as expected. Thank you again for crafting it and delivering it so quickly with care.
The car coat is great. Probably the best-crafted piece of clothing I've ever held. Thanks for the help with everything.
I can only say things about [...] the car coat that you probably already know: they're really, really wonderful garments. I had imagined saving them for the spring, but realised they are both perfect for the weather that we are having right now in south Hessen. The coat is particularly kuschelig and really is like no other coat I've owned.
The fit [of the car coat] is good, like I hoped. My wife could not believe that this was newly made coat and not a vintage one, based on the quality of the stitching and the finishing.
I love the car coat. Beautifully made. And thank you the accompanying care advice. No doubt I shall buy again.
Just to let you know I have been putting the car coat through its paces over the past few weeks. Rain or wind, it has performed, as expected — spectacularly. The sizing is just about perfect, with or without a jacket underneath.
The liner arrived in perfect shape yesterday, and is already at my tailors with the two coats to have buttons installed. I have had many button-in liners over the years, and this one is the best. The quality of the materials is amazing — most companies seem to use inferior materials for this sort of thing — and the workmanship is your usual perfection.
