I picked up this trench-styled leather great coat last winter at a night market in the CBD. Had few chances to wear it in the summer as the heavy leather is snug and safe but also very warm; with winter approaching down under it's time to bust out the waterproof winter wear so 'an Inspector Calls'. The hat is a classic, I used it in 'Marlowe Underground' and the spine of the outfit is a Jack London Warnie pullover, classic white shirt and skinny mod tie both also from Jack London and my fave black Lip Service jeans... you can check that outfit out under 'Preppin for London' (one of my first looks). These images aren't consistent in colour as I tried to bring out the texture using a couple of different effects in snapseed; it gives the morning sunrise here a coupe of different textures but doesn't detract from the awesome shading and finish in the textured leather. DV8 really have given this every attention to details - as you can see from the stitching and brass buttons. It's simply gorgeous and will be my go to overcoat for the wet weather.
