"Love And Be Loved" Designer and His Coat
I happened upon this fellow named Amin Phillips this afternoon manning his own stall in Spitalfields. He had on one of the most amazing overcoats I have ever come across. A long fitted number of heavy wool. It had a high collar and a most unusual double breasted design where an excess of fabric between the top and second bottons constructed a near pouch-like space. One could conceivably walk around Napoleon-like with one hand comfortably warming in that pocket in the harsh Russian winters - if one was inclined to embark yet again on such futile endeavours, that is...
A very sexy coat, but you better have the body for it!
