I found this picture of a historic riding coat:
...and this is the back of another. You can't get more detailed than this!!!
..but in my quest for something a tad bit more modern and usable, I found this.
This coat was actually a part of a more modern "Steam Punk" outfit that was ... ahem... too riskay for the likes of me, which is why I only posted these pictures ..
.. but if you stretch your imagination just a bit and think about what a wonderful elegant addition this could be to a historic outfit... maybe in a more garnet or burgandy color of red or a more modest grey with black detailing....
EXCUSE ME - I MUST LEAVE AT ONCE AND GO TO THE FABRIC STORE!!!
