“Over The Rainbow by Richard Williams Quartet”
The raw material used in this Pea Coat Tasmania Polwarth, which was made in the originally-spun luxurious 48 single count yarn, 6-ply fabric. This requires a meticulous method, twisting two threads each time and combining them all together afterwards. On top of this, we processed the fabric in the “royal flannel method,” lessening the piling of the garment by making it into a high-quality flannel material; I believe we gave a moderate amount of sturdiness and elasticity to it by making the most of the characteristics of the raw wool. We have prepared the coat in two colorways: brown, made with brown warp and black weft, and navy.
In regards to the design, we tried to keep in mind the sturdiness and elasticity of the material. It has a long length for a Pea Coat, being 85 cm and we put in a deep vent on the back. The silhouette is in a box-shape as well. The pocket is placed on a high location and its flap is made in a big size. The chest area was made in the way so that it would be stylish even if you close the buttons to the neck. There is detailed stitching on the collar, making the collar look good when put up. Once one closes all their buttons and puts up their collar, it will give them an impressive aura. We put cuffs in the armhole to give a classic feel.
The feature we would like to boast the most is its lining. In suit making, there is a process that we call “daimikaeshi” in Japan where the outer material is used in the inner material. In this Pea Coat as well, the outer wool material is used extravagantly on the main inner area. This kind of tailoring requires twice as much outer material—usually the outer material would be only used in the middle of the back area—and cannot be seen in ready-made clothes, perhaps, only in custom made ones. We challenged such extravagant tailoring as well this season.
