    I've never worn anything but formal coats...I hate parkas etc...

    This week I'm having some belt loops and a blue satin belt put onto my Dior Monsieur overcoat to make it look like Dior Homme...

    Sorry no dig cam :cry:


    I can tell you it worked pretty well though. I had five 2.5" belt loops sewn on and I made a belt out of an old karate belt I died electric blue and then dipped in some liquid latex (I had to buy it from a fetish shop!). The belt comes off for when I want to look more classic too! B)

    I'm so glad to see these are coming back into focus...though I know many men never stopped wearing them. I love nothing more than a man in a properly fitting dress coat. quite a few guys I know at uni wear them on a daily basis. my brother always wears a small black fitted coat as well, and it looks really nice. if only I could convince my bf to go for a traditional dress coat...:ninja: I just think it is ever so much more masculine to see a guy in a fitted coat that accentuates his figure, rather than in some sporty windbreaker or square-cut parka.

    btw your coat sounds brilliant, prince.:flower:

    what kind of overcoat is it? a long coat?

    liquid latex, interesting. did you get it clear or did you get a blue to dull out the electric blue?

    Exactly knee-length, double-breasted, notch-lapels, very square shoulders, nipped in waist and single back-vent.

    I just used clear latex, it dulls the coulour slightly anyway.

    Does the liquid latex do the "rubberized" kind of thing that Helmut Lang and Dior Homme and D&G are doing? If so, I'm gonna get some...

    POC--I'm also curious about the liquid latex. I "painted" an artist friend with it for a performance piece, but only on skin. How does it wear on fabric?

    I only painted the belt but it doesn't seem to have cracked, peeled or gone hard at all - must have had strong plasticizers in it. This wasn't special fabric stuff it was just like 'Foxy Hot Dog Sex Mistress Second Skin' or something equally awful...

    Yes, to Alex but, as with a lot of things, it doesn't look as good as when the pros do it.
