about the delany & the brett

The Delany and Brett coats have simple round necks, box pleats at the shoulders and gathered bell cuffs. They are superbly well-suited to wearing above a shorter sleeve or flared sleeve dress.

 

The Delany body cut is based on the Bell, being suited to the straighter frame and more modestly chested.

 

The Brett body cut is based on the Burlinson, being suited to the curvier frame and the fuller busted.

 

The coats have two slanted pockets to the front and are designed to fall to be worn open and to fall to mid-low calf length.

When closed, the two front panels of the coats should be able to meet without either straining at the rear or overlapping at the front.

body type

The Delany works well on all sizes with more modest busts.

The Brett works well on all sizes with fuller busts.

customising

You can also opt to have the coats taken in or let out at the shoulders, and cut to a longer or shorter length.
Additional width can be added to the Brett at the bust, waist and hips. 
You can add any of our closures to the Delany and the Brett coats.

collars

The Delany and the Brett coats can be ordered with Mandarin, Low Mandarin or Nehru collars.
