    Just as the title says.
    Anyone have any good pics they want to share?
    Front, side, back...close up's of details and materials? Interior lining??

    Anything you may have would be very helpfull. I may be making this as I do have a production gap coming up that I need to fill. This could be fun to do and probably quick to get going and out the door.
    Potential interest in this see the J/Y. I want to keep this for research only.

    ****New Info***
    I want to do the tweed Jacket/Blazer he wears underneath the Trench coat also. A good link to the actual one is posted below. Thanks Spinner 44.
    Check it out and if you think it's also cool then drop me a line in the J/Y so I can see if there is enough to make that as well.

    Thanks.

    David,
    Along with the pics that someone already posted in the JY, here's another:
    It shows good detail of the quilting along the collar portion of the coat.

    Hope that's useful.

    Hmm, just found this on Google image search as well. Seems to be a description or something of the coat. Or maybe a handwritten COA for the Profiles in History auction:

    [​IMG]

    I think it reads, "Bonhams Nov 99

    To whom it may concern.
    Lot 110.
    The russet silk ??????
    jacket was specifically
    designed for Harrison Ford
    in the film "Blade Runner
    by myself.

    Charles ???????

    Tweed. Of course, duh. . . that's what it is.
    You know, come to think of it, this letter probably pertains to the 'suit jacket' and not the trenchcoat. Deckard's suit jacket was tweed.

    I would lean towards agreeing with this. The trench coat doesnt seem to be tweed.
    Still, a great find having that letter there.

    It's actually "trech jacket" http://media.bladezone.com/contents/film/p...stumes/deckard/

    The coat was made of a very fine egyptian cotton, that is what it has so many wrinkles on it. Not desigened to be waterproff or anything. If there was any lining at all it was just for the upper part, there are many pics of the Zhora chase scene that show how the cotton is not lined from the hips down and in fact its translucent.

    I think Phil S. had some very good info on the coat and sure he'll be willing to help you. It's actually strange he hasn't posted yet.

    Regards

    Wasn't there a copy of the coat available once on "Trench Man's" now defunct site, Trenchco? Not a bad copy, but I guess demand exceeded supply, and the site got gobbled up by the web...

    Is there an accepted collar height? I get 3.5" when I scale it based off a 0.75" button on the collar.

    That makes the buttoned pocket 5" high and 1.125" wide, and the strap 1"x2".

    Any thoughts?

    Here is the photo I was using.

    I may also make the tweed jacket to go along with it.....

    Eh...I'm thinking about it. There is a lot of reference material on that also so I figured what the heck. We'll see though. If people seem interested in that also then I'll go ahead with it, otherwise I dont want to invest time, resources and mulah into something not many will want. The cool thing is if the community is up for this also, then I'll make them both at the same time.

    I just dont know if for peoples displays or wearing if they will go as far as to get the jacket also. I suppose we'll see.....:)

    I was looking at the image again, and I must have rescaled the image when I scrolled down. The pocket seems to be 1.375"x6.0" with the strap 1.25"x2.375".

    Using that scale on another picture with the collar unbuttoned makes the collar appear to be between 4.0" and 4.25" wide/high.

    Trench is in the works.
    What I need is some image/s of the interior. Even if it's just a small part of the trench open showing the inside.
    I'd like a good look a the lining and just how far it goes. If it's a standard 'partial' lining or not. I'm guessing it is though.
    Any details here would really help.

    This trench as some very particular details. Collar and pockets mostly. I used to make garments for Canali, and they had many trench coats. Similar fabrics to this one. As long as the details are accurate and properly positioned on my end, getting it done right is not going to be the issue.
    Things of concern on my end are the color...VERY important. If the color is off it'll throw the entire look off. Details and what not are equally important obviously but those are easily seen thanks to the images some here have supplied me with. Big thanks to you all.
    If I nail the color, that's easily 75% of this project out of the way. The rest is simple garment construction based on accurate interpretation of reference materials. I'm hoping my use of the words Accurate Interpretaion is just that.....:)

    Regarding the Blazer Jacket, in all honesty, I'm on the fence. I dont know if there is enough interest to get that going too. Maybe, maybe not...hoping the Interest thread in the JY will get more comments about the jacket too. I dont have any plans to make the tie, shirt or pants....that's for sure. B)

    More to come..

    These are the only photos that barely show the lining at the bottom. I've got a crazy pile of them and these are the best. Most shots are way too dark and the inner jacket always covers up any shot of the interior in most photos at the upper parts of the coat.

    In these shots I think you can see the the lining extending down to the bottom of the coat. I may be wrong. These sets are awfully dark and the puffyness that I see as lining could just be the regular fabric poofing inwards.

    If you need any other shot of the coat just let me know.

    I think I m,ay have a slightly better version of the first photo taken during the same shoot. I'll check.

    Because I can't post to the Junkyard yet, posting this here...

    I'd definitely be interested in the trenchcoat and likely the jacket as well- just depends on the total cost for both and how any prototypes turn out. But based on the Luke jacket I've seen pics of, I have high hopes :)

    Aside from that, I love these threads- there's so much great BR info I've never come across before. A lot of great detail previously unseen (by me, anyway).

    Here are some of what appears to be triple piping on the front sleeve seam made from the same material as the inner collar. It seems to end about even with the first button of the coat.

    Any thougthts on this?

    People need to stop putting corduroy on the collar. Look at the photos, its stitched to look like that, and is the same type of fabric as the rest of the coat.

    That's not Baron Boutique's coat. That is the Screen Used coat. The photo is from when it and several other Blade Runner costumes were auctioned off. You can see the Tweed coat next to it.

    Hey guys. :)

    I finally logged in to answer PM's and address some of my threads.

    OK..I have put ALL my personal projects on hold accept for this one. I dont want to stretch myself out to thin, as we are quite busy with several projects currently. It hurts particularly that I've had to hold off on the BTTF jacket because I have spent a small fortune on it already trying to get it right but it's just going to take more...and I dont have the time to dedicate to it currently. I'll get back to it in the next few months but for now, this one will continue onward.

    WOTW...another one I really would love to do but will have to wait. The Mad Max jacket as well...

    The patterns for the BR trench are done, so I will be looking to do one up eventually. Fabric has been a hit and miss, the color is the easiest part actually...I have this momentarily on hold...but only momentarily. Much to do...so I need to juggle everything properly and in a certain priority first and foremost.
    Simply put, BR is going to go ahead while nearly anything else I've had on the workbench (yes, my work bench is 200 yards long....) will have to be put on hold.
