The British men’s wool and tweed coat classic cut were used for the top.
It looks like a coat just put on the chair. And the collar, pockets and lapels and buttons – all are saved. Strict appearance can be complemented by a scarf and a handkerchief in his breast pocket. The traditional fabric pattern is cell, hem and calm classic colors give the chair a new solid reliability, peace of mind and some home comfort.
