Best suited for heavier weight fabrics such as wool, cotton drill and some jacquards. Wool is best for a warm, lined winter coat, but for an easy year round layer, a heavy cotton, linen or viscose can be used.
If you are particularly tall or enjoy a long winter coat, you can extend the hem to your desired length. You can always reduce the hem back down to the original length if needed.
