Here’s a comparison shot of various stretch cotton Paul Smith trousers, often called ‘chino-style’ but they’re just cotton trousers really rather than chinos. The dark navy (top) was used in S9 and early S10 before being overdyed to black for later S10 (see the other pictures). The bottom left is an overdyed black pair and the bottom right is the off-the-shelf black. Though the my camera doesn’t show these dark colours accurately at all my overdyed ones are lightly faded/aged and show slight signs of heat shrinkage around the seams as a result of the dye bath, just like Capaldi’s. If trying to replicate this look in a stock black pair my advice is just to wear and wash them regularly, they’ll eventually fade and show wear like Capaldi’s. ---------------------------------------------------- #doctorwho#doctorwhocosplay#costume#cosplay#thedoctor#doctorwhoreplica#screenaccurate#petercapaldi#twelfthdoctor#twelfthdoctorcosplay#12thdoctor#12thdoctorcosplay#paulsmith#series9#series10
Got halfway through making this premium screen-accurate series nine Capaldi coat from the real-deal camel hair cloth, and things have gone a bit pear-shaped!
Sadly not heard from my client since mid May and he’s reneged on all his promises of payments, so gonna have to assume it’s now abandoned. Real bummer.
If anyone wants the chance to pick up the baton on this, I can offer some pretty good terms regarding price (bearing in mind the cost of the cloth in the first place) - the ex-client will have to pick up the tab on the shortfall (your discount). Only draw back might be it’s roughly a chest 36, so quite small fitting.
For an example of the finished coat, please head over to @doctor.nomore to see the version I recently made for him.
