I have a thing for jackets, coats, and blazers. I probably own at least 25. This is my newest:

tux coat 1

Description: tallish white woman with short hair, wearing white tuxedo coat, blue jeans, black t-shirt, and gray driver cap, and a beaded necklace, smiling.

Bought for 50 cents from a queer neighbor's yard sale. \o/ I also bought a wool blanket for 2 dollars. These jeans are too big, which I can see now from this photo.

That looks lovely! I covet that tuxedo coat, but I know that if I did have it and wore it even for a minute, I'd manage to spill something on it. D:

I seem to remember spray on stain repellent - scotch-gard maybe? It might be worth coating the coat.

I have a black tailcoat, but man do I want a white one now...

I also have a jacket problem.

Ohhhh, you look stunningly handsome in that get-up! I am coveting the hat as well as the coat, actually :)

I have a thing for coats but being a wheelchair user I hardly ever wear them because there are almost no coats that look decent when one is sitting down ... I don't much like the above-hip-length type jackets. Should sit down with some patterns and some knowledgable friends and draft a modified pattern for something that works and which I like ... *ponders*
