French Military Coat

No. 5847




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

Style & Substance.

First, the style.

French Military. Heavily inspired by the tunics of the French fly boys such as Roland Garros, whom you probably think of as a French tennis player but who was actually a French pilot and war hero. Garros wasn’t an ace, but he was the first to strap a forward-facing machine gun to the front of his plane to shoot through the propeller, made possible through the use of deflector wedges mounted to the propeller blades. Before this, the boys in the air carried pistols and bricks. How’s that for resourceful?

Second, the substance. A crisp and substantial wool (760 grams) woven in England’s legendary Moon Factory, established in 1837. It’s one of England’s only remaining vertical mills, which means it completes every step of the fabric-making process on one site.

French Military Coat (No. 5847). 100% Moon Mill Wool. Stand collar with topstitching detail. Striking turnback-sleeve cuffs. Tailored fit with angled front-shaping darts. Body is lined in khaki-colored cotton. Sleeves are lined in ivory with red striped taffeta. Four exterior patch pockets with flap (chest pockets are angled with box pleat detail). Interior pocket inside right chest. Back waistband with center back vent below.Imported.
