Annual Ring

  • Based on the British Royal Air Force overcoat in the 1940s during World War II.

    This is a coat for RAF officers and men who wear it when their normal uniform does not provide enough warmth. Before synthetic fibers, thick wool was the most common material for overcoats. The coats are heavy and tight, but they are not particularly windproof, so they are more suitable for officers engaged in static tasks in non-battlefield front lines. Although thick wool has a certain degree of water resistance, it will further increase the weight of the coat when the water content of the coat is saturated in severe rainy weather, and it will take a long time to dry out. Since there is not enough waterproof and windproof, it is not a more practical choice for officers and soldiers. Since the 1960s, overcoats have been classified as ceremonial clothes.

    After searching for half a year, Annual Ring finally got an antique Royal officer's coat from the 1940s. The original version is too wide, keep the original classic details and adjust the length of the sleeve properly. After more than ten times of revision, get the current effect, so that it will not appear thin when wearing alone, nor appear bloated when wearing a suit inside.
