I am Rê, a classic duffle coat. I am an iconic, timeless garment loaded with the elements and details of the original Montgomery coat: toggle closures, a 3-piece hood with button tab, a shoulder yoke, two large patch pockets with flaps, a two-piece sleeve with a tightening tab. I have a straight cut but still feel fitted. I have 2 length options: hip and mid-thigh. I am a classic garment that will delight all sewists looking to create a long-lasting wardrobe.
