I noticed, Steveboski coat didn't sit well on mannequin, that's why it looks smaller than others.
We are waiting to see mluder/ Steven 's coat images.
Jameel, I think it would be extremely helpful if we knew how tall that mannequin is. Since people are looking at the drape of the coat on the mannequin, it could be misleading if the customer is shorter or taller. Mine looked odd on the mannequin, but I'm 5'9"...

FWIW - I am 5'-9" and my coat length was 48" That said, I asked for that length because I was concerned about getting it too short. It hits me a little lower than screen accurate but even that seems to change from scene to scene. I figured if it's a bit long I can always have it taken up.
I also noted my sleeves are a bit long even though they match the measurements I sent. I think it's probably because the coat I measured (suite jacket) has a narrower circumference (is tighter fitting) at the neck than an overcoat does. That ended up adding about 2 inches in length to the sleeves. Again not a deal breaker for me.

That makes sense, the mannequin is at least 6ft, 4 inches taller than me and it probably has broader shoulders, so my smaller coat is going to look short and pulled tight on it. As long as people keep in mind the mannequin size, it will give a good idea what the coat looks like at their size.

My mannequne size is top to bottom, 72"/6 feet, and back neck to bottom is 66".
This is another coat, with 44" back length.

Thank you guys, please leave your feedback on RPF forum.
That would be important for me.
I have a question?
Should I start new run as second run or continue this run and change into "unlimited" from limited run?

Personally, I'd prefer to see this run recognized as the Initial (First) Run and have your next run as the "Second Run"...

I think that would make this small First run that much more Special for this small group who supported this first effort and now have these amazing BR Trench Coats to show for it (y)

It would also help give a little bit of recognition to the effort by everyone here who gave thoughts, criticism and feedback and who pooled their research and evidence to help add to what we've all learned and observed about the coat over the years
(and for some of us, the kinds of things we'd only just Recently figured out!)

So, I'd prefer to be able to say that "I own one of the NINE Coats from the FIRST RUN"
(or however many you made this time around, Jameel) :)

Just my opinion

I'm really excited to hear feedback from those of you who've already received your coats. Mine is on the way!! (WHOOO!) Right on schedule and due here in several days.

I would vote for making either a second run or moving it to an unlimited run. Mitch LaRue made some good points. Whatever you do, Jameel, keep up the amazing work. I look forward to what other gems you and Excellent Leather Shop have in store.

I left you some feedback here on the RPF. Keep rocking! And keep sewing!!!

And I forgot. Congratulations to everyone of you who've already received your coats!

I like this idea. A second run with this being the first, special run. (y)

Thank you guys,
This was first run that have 9 orders total.
Interesting thing is that I had done 15 coats and then rejected 6 coats after final checking. I'll share some pictures of them.
Again I would say you guys are awesome without your help I couldn't reach this point.
Now we can say "most screen accurate coat".
Thanks

Jameel, first and foremost, well done on the coat run! I've had time to really look over mine and I'm very happy with it, so thank you! I'm going to leave a bit of feedback below, but I'd be happy to post my feedback/review wherever is most helpful to you, so please let me know and I'll take this post down / move it.

To give everyone an idea on my size, I'm 5'9" 170lbs, 34" waist. My jacket was probably one of the smaller ones made, so it looked a bit different on the mannequin. On me though, I'd say it fits just right. I've got an existing coat from another maker that's a bit small on me, the material is lighter in color and it's heavier in weight than Jameel's, and the collar is not long enough for the straps to cross over and button. Because Jameel's is lighter in weight and softer, the fabric displays the wrinkles much better, has a better baggy fit, and overall fits much better. To me, Jameel's coat much more closely resembles the screen used coat compared to the other maker, and I'm very happy with my purchase. Jameel's coat is on the right in all photos. I hope this helps others.
