    I want an Atilla Jacket. Unfortunately I cannot think how to design it.

    No Shoulder Straps
    No Horizontal Bands

    Purple Material
    Displaying the following Charges:
    Arrowheads (Gold)
    Charging Boar (Gold)
    Sigil of Baphomet (Gold Outline)

    How should I display the charges?


    What sort of Jacket would you want?
    What style would it be in?
    What colour would it be?
    What, if any, designs or charges would you put on it?

    It seems as though horizontal bands and shoulder straps are part and parcel of atilla jackets:

    If you want to move away from this kind of ornamentation the progression would seem to be: frock coats; smoking jackets; coats/jackets; waist-coats.

    Frock-coats

    Smoking Jackets:

    From your description, what you probably need is a frock-coat/smoking jacket hybrid, with a large boar on the back (football team style) made in a custom purple/arrowhead fabric.?

    No. I know what I want and I stated it quite clearly. The bands and shoulder straps are form not function. Therefore they can be removed quite easily.

    The difference between the atilla and the jackets you mentioned, were the collar, and where the cloth meets. Quite a difference indeed.

    Anyone else want to play the game?

    I looked up Atilla jacket to get an idea what you were talking about... I found this:

    "One of the deciding factor in their victory was the fact that the Turks, seeing the "flying sleeves of the short coats" thought that they are fighting men who had more than two arms, which in turn got them scared and made them run away."

    I lol'd.

    I have no idea where you'd be able to get a jacket like that made.

    I'd like a geisha jacket. I don't know if they have a technical name, but they have the long sleeves with a flood of fabric at the wrists. I want the whole damn outfit, but the thread is about jackets. lol

    Something like this:

    but less slutty and more traditional. It's amazingly difficult to find a geisha dress that's traditional, not a costume, but still pretty.

    You just have to show a good tailor what you want...

    That does seem like a good jacket. What colours, designs would you have?

    Like this with less of those buckles. I would add a satin crimson lining and change the collar to be more open. Lengthen, flare, and pleat the sleeves, remove the straps.

    I'd probably just look at patterns until something struck the right cord. Ideally, though, I think I'd like something in the realm of blue since that's probably my best color.

    Elf, I can totally picture that! Hot!!

    So you want a fitted jacket with tight sleeves? What are you wearing this to?

    Are you able to draw up a rough sketch of what you have in mind, for us visual people?

    I could draw a sketch, but... It'd not upload. Try the Good Barons jacket from Dune.

    Purple, with golden buttons (sigil of baphoment)
    On the high neck, two golden Boars charging. One on either side, into each other.

    Not sure where to put the arrows.
