The Florence Coat is a long-line, oversized, unlined coat with a relaxed style. It features a collarless neckline with stitched down facing, dropped shoulders, patch pockets and full-length sleeves with turned back cuffs. The coat front sits edge-to-edge without overlap, making it the perfect lightweight layering piece for the autumn/winter months. As seams are overlapped and edges and hems left raw, the Florence Coat is best made up in boiled or felted wools that do not fray when cut.
