UPDATE 7-22-13: As a free upgrade, I’m offering loops and shank buttons on the sleeves so they can be easily taken on and off rather than the sewn-on metallic charms.
The elegant doublet is made with a an extremely high quality jacquard fabric in a stunning lapis lazuli color with an elegant woven harlequin design. It is lined with a blue heavy weight basket weave fabric and interlined with heavy weight interfacing. Boning has been inserted along the grommets for added structure and support. Natural cording laces through gold tone machine pressed grommets. The cording ends are crimped with aiglets for ease of threading and a nice finished look. The tabs at the shoulders and waist are made with a sumptuous tan suede fabric.
The sleeves are detachable and tie with cording (crimped with aiglets) to d-rings which have been placed inconspicuously inside the doublet armholes. I’ve attached elegant metallic charms at five places along the opening of each sleeve. The sleeves are designed to allow glimpses of the shirt worn underneath. As you can see, it looks stunning with or without the sleeves and is available for purchase either way.
If you’d prefer a different type of closure rather than the grommets and cording, such as cloak-type clasps or frog closures, there will be an extra charge. The amount will vary depending on the type of closure you select and the cost of the materials.
The Lapis Doublet with Sleeves $299.00
