There is no doubt that Shrine Clothing is worth every penny and more. The mens coats have been some of the most coveted and seen clothing on goths, pirates, and television stars alike. Pewter buttons, fully lined, padded shoulders, heavy material, all the trappings of the best of the best. Tapered at the top and sweeping toward the bottom, with European stand-up collar. Twelve antique liberty coin buttons decorate the front with two more on the cuffs and two on the waist in back. A roomy hip pocket on either side. Fully lined inside in rich, heavy black satin. Is meant to hang open like, well, like a frock coat, but does have 2 hidden hooks at the bust if you want a closed look. They run narrow in the shoulders, and very slim in the arms. Some of the XL ladies have found that the XXL will give them the shoulder and arm room they need, and have exchanged for larger. Please keep this in mind when deciding on size. I’m a small and went up to the medium to get the shoulder and arm width. Size chart below, scroll down.
The colors referred to are as trim on background. Red on Black. Black on Silver, etc.
