One of my readers dropped me a line over Christmas, along with a photo.
He had been watching a film over the festive period and something rang a bell with him in connection to the custom frock coat I recently made for a client of mine in the US.
He was watching the 2009 Guy Ritchie version of Sherlock Holmes, and noticed that Jude Law’s costume as Doctor Watson bore more than a passing resemblance to what I had made!
The only difference is the horizontal grid-lines are a light blue, but their spacing and background colour certainly look to be a match.
Not only that, it was used in a very similar way with a stylised, short frock coat and waistcoat, along with a match pair of trousers!
That’s our story and we’re sticking to it!
