Design Your Own: Coat
In sizes 6-18

Versatile piece perfect for winter
Our staple coat is ideal for wearing over a cute tee and skinny jeans with a choice between having a collar or going collarless!
How to choose your fabric + place your order:
1. Choose your fabric by heading to our instagram fabric gallery
Each fabric has a reference number & details of which of our designs + sizes it is suitable for. Comment on the instagram post or email us via firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve it – we generally only have enough of each fabric for 1-2 garments so this step is really important!
2. Place your order here – double-check you have the correct garment style.
Your fabric reservation lasts for 72 hours so please place your order during this time otherwise the fabric will become available to other customers.
Important: make sure to write your size, collar preference + fabric reference number in the order notes when you are entering your payment details.
3. Sit back, make a cup of tea + get excited about your one of a kind garment!
The coat is made with full length sleeves and lined for extra warmth. Like all our coats, these classic pieces are made to button up and come with the bonus of added pockets!

BUY IT NOW
I just received my design your own two piece today and I am in LOVE. This is the third piece I’ve bought from Emperor’s and let me tell you this, the standard is unbelievable. I have never owned anything that fit me so well before. I am definitely an Emperor’s convert for life! If you’re still contemplating buying something, JUST DO IT. Not only will you be supporting an incredible company that clearly put so much thought and heart into their work and have an amazing ethos to be more sustainable and more inclusive, you also just DESERVE clothes that fit you this well and are of this quality. Do it, you won’t regret it.
Lovely custom two piece
I received my custom two piece (crop top and shorts) in the post yesterday. It’s absolutely lovely, I’m so pleased with it. The fit and quality is lovely. I’m excited for the weather to get warmer so I can wear it outside!
‘It’s a no brainer...’
‘It’s a no brainer’ refers to my friend’s reaction when I was deciding whether or not to buy one of Cecily’s coats – he was right and I walked out of the shop in it…. I was back there 3 days later to collect my design your own culottes (my second pair so I now have summer and winter covered) and a skirt that Cecily made from some beautiful Harris Tweed that I picked up on holiday. Both items are fantastic. The skirt needed a slight tweak when I went for my fitting and is now perfect. Cecily and her team are really helpful and talented. I’d really recommend The Emperor’s Old Clothes and if you have a chance go to the shop in person as you’ll fall in love with items you never knew you needed in your life!
