Isn’t that a nice overcoat?
The guards coat
It has line and flair. I think the mottled bottle green cloth (W. Bill) suits the guards coat design very well. Blue, grey, black or brown are perhaps more common choices for the design, but the bottle green shade works as well.
Only a blue suit would be a bit difficult to pair with the shade. Grey and brown harmonize with the forest green shade.
In the photo I wear the overcoat with grey trousers of vintage flannel from Fox Brothers. My shoes are made-to-measure shell cordovans from Kielman. The chocolate brown cashmere scarf comes from Begg. Merola has made the carpincho gloves.
Bespoke tailor Francesco Guida has crafted the overcoat.

It’s a handsome coat. The color on my monitor is muted; I’d almost call it a feldgrau.
You’re right, it’s close to feldgrau, though a tad more green in real life, I think.
