When I was twelve years old I recall asking my grandmother to add orange/red piping to a camel colored dress jacket my dad had given to me. That jacket, along with a white sweater turned into a 1980's version of cosplay for me and still brings me good memories. I have been looking to purchase Magnoli's version for a while now and I'm very happy I did so. Like all other Magnoli products, the frock coat is made with care. I look forward to making use of it...

I went for the screen authentic coat here. The detailing and the piping are very good, and I believe that the coat has gone through a number of refinements and touches to the pattern. The color is spot on and I cannot see any difference with the colors that the coat was based on. I've had my measurements on file for awhile and, as usual, the coat is a very comfortable and good fit. Either the style from TV or the other colors will give you a nice garment that is a good value for the money compared to what you will find in a store off the rack. Whatever color you go with, the piping is a very nice touch that you are not going to find in most places. Black with black piping will give you a very Victorian style that still looks very classy in today's world. Enjoy!..

I feel qualified to offer this review as the coat featured here is actually the one commissioned for me! I love coats and having searched for a long, long time for something different I happened across an old episode of Doctor Who, and quickly realised that Peter Davison’s coat, based loosely on an Edwardian/ Victorian frock style, was exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. I wasn’t interested in a costume look (although I can see the colour scheme is available for devotees of the excellent television show) so, as the coat would be used on a daily basis, went for Indy’s suggestion of a more muted black Merino wool blend, with satin piping to accentuate the striking features of the coat, finished off with the sublime lining (again Indy’s suggestion). The coat itself is finished magnificently with a wonderful cut and fits perfectly, and on the first day of wearing I received numerous compliments and questions about the style, and also enquiries about which store I bought it from! The materials used are first class, and I foresee many years of use from this beautiful coat; in fact I am so genuinely delighted that I am saving my pennies for another slightly different variant, perhaps with a more daring colour scheme. I was completely new to online buying, certainly from a clothing perspective, so admit to having many reservations. I needn’t have as the instructions for measurements are very clear and concise (have someone help you with this), and Indy is ever patient, quick to respond to what must appear the most stupid enquiries (from the likes of me) and uses his wealth of experience to pick out potential problems with measurements, and offer excellent advice on material choice and colour schemes. If you’re concerned at all about ordering, please don’t be. Just make sure your measurements are correct and that you clearly communicate your requirements. I cannot recommend this beautiful coat, Magnoli Clothiers and, of course, Indy himself highly enough. I certainly look forward to future business...
