about the delany & the brett

The Delany and Brett coats have mandarin collars, 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 hugely wearable and particularly flattering on the more modestly chested and the Apple and Pear shape.

 

The Brett body cut is based on the Burlinson, being hugely wearable and particularly flattering on the fuller busted or curvier Apple and Pear shape.

 

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 frames with more modest busts.

The Brett works well on all frames with fuller busts.

customising

You can remove the Mandarin Collar should that be your preference. 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.

fabrics for the delany & the brett

The Delany & The Brett will work well with all of the fabrics we suggest below. Opting for a fabric with more hold – a thicker wool, brocade or bouclé – will lend structure to the gathered cuffs, while lighter textiles – in particular our silk linens, will lend the cuff a softer effect.
