A solid trench coat
I'm 5'7'' with a measurement of 37-28-33. Size 37 was a perfect, comfortable fit for me. The waxed canvas material really does keep the coat waterproof. I would suggest looking up how to care for it. Keep in mind it should be machined washed, dry cleaned, or ironed. Coat is very stylish. It looks like a traditional trench coat except with the back having a two toned color scheme. Some people might not like it, but I think it helps set it apart from another boring trench. In terms of warmth, it's sufficiently warm. I don't think it's warm enough for snowy weather, but for upper 30s and above the coat is good to have on. Also kudos to Volante Design's customer service. I messed up with caring for the coat and they sent me some wax to help repair.
I love my new coat. Bought it at NYCC because it reminded me so much of the coat David Tennant wore as the 10th Doctor on Dr Who. I have received so many compliments on it already and have only worn it to two social functions. Will get a lot of use out of it now that the cold weather and Christmas holiday season approaches.
Favorite Jacket I have Ever Owned!!!
There are many things I can say about this coat... I'll start of with the fact that it looks amazing! Every time I wear it I feel like I'm hunting down my own demons. Very well crafted with strong, flexible, military grade waxed canvass; Just so happened to be my favorite material. It's thin but insulates and at the same time breathable. Oh, did I mention it looks amazing? You'll definitely stand out with this coat, own it!
And so the nightly hunt begins.
It's exceedingly rare that I can buy a product that I can describe as all but flawless. Lacking a waterproof coat in my collection, I chose this monster. The fit, helpfully suggested by the volante crew, is like a glove and has continued to loosen comfortably since I received it. The lines, colour and flare of the skirt all compliment the Victorian base the coat is inspired by. The ducks cloth meanwhile is so sturdy I doubt I'll ever so much as scuff it. Long story short, everything you could want to hunt beasts.
An anylytical look at the coat
This coat is very affordable comparatively to other brands and coats made with similar materials and quality take burberry for example they burberry makes there jackets out of a treated cotton gabardine witch is sturdy and waterproof like this coat. But burberry will cost you more than 2× as much new than this jacket addtiinally is argue this coat in fact is higher quality due to the fact it is much heavier jacket. Made of the same fabric for a better feel and fit and even the custom option is well worth the price its still far cheaper than burberry higher quality and a huge variety of option and choice in the customization of the coat and as a complement to the customer service and staff they are very friendly and very knowledgeable on their product. I have bought alto of trench coats in my life spent thousands of dollars and never have I seen a coat more worth buying than this one. Volante's products will. Make. Excellent additions to my collection .
