Hmmm not sure why Nicks WTB thread is in here too but hey ho
I bought this, camo Lapel variant, Han trench
coat on ebay recently.
But I'm not altogether sure of its authenticity.
The lapels look very narrow, compared to other ones I've seen. The fit isn't very good and the weave of the fabric looks slightly different, compared to the regular, non camo, lapel coat.
plus on the left, front panel of the cape, at the bottom and running down along one side it seems to be shorter and narrower :scratch:
It almost looks like someone has removed the original lapels, then cut down one of the panels to make the new, camo lapels. Although if your going to remove the lapels, why not just flip them over then stitch them back on? Also the stitching along the lapels matches the rest of the cape perfectly, although the stitching seems to run down the middle of the lapel rather than along the edge.
Is there a wider and narrower lapel variant, or is it just a quite badly made factory error cape?
I didn't pay very much for it as its not in the best condition, but I am interested to know your thoughts on it.
