DIY: DOPE MEN SEW LATEST STYLE

DIY: FIRE RED CORDUROY TRENCH COAT + CLASSIC MENSWEAR

Checkout my first DIY coat for the Fall/Winter season and how I styled it…

Yo Whats Up!

Today I’m just showing off just a little. I really haven’t been inspired to make anything I love at the moment, but then I came across this red corduroy fabric. Since its the time of the year now I wanted to make a trench coat because I feel they are the best coats during the transitioning seasons from hot to cold. I didn’t want to do a traditional tan color either so this bold red was like magic to this pattern.

I kept it nice and classic too with a suit/tie and waistcoat underneath the trench. This is a bold look that could be pulled off anyway! You can stroll down Wall St. headed to the office or entertaining a person of interest at a nice kickback. Trust me…this look works in any environment.
