I really don't want to start another thread so I'm going to revive this thread as I've thrashed my frock coat so I need to get another.
Has anyone seen the frock made by Nick Sekela
? I fainted at the price but what little I've seen from the photos that frock looks real nice. I went to the Johnson Reproductions site and I agree with JBoring about the color of the trim on the frock. I'm not sure how to deal with fixing the trim's color without sacrificing my sanity.
So it's time for me to fight the eternal struggle between cost and authenticity. I definitely don't want to go cheap as I had some trousers self destruct due to poor thread quality and the fabric was simply ok. I'm not going to name the vendor.
Advice and/or moral support are highly appreciated as well as topping off my whiskey ration.
