Peter O'Brien x STABLE Cardigan Coat 2023 in Green


    Sonia and Francie have worn tweed coats all our lives and it was a natural step to include a STABLE one in the collection. In order to create a coat with not only great style but also great tailoring and function, it was straight to Irish designer Peter O’Brien to explain the brief and idea and to work with Peter to create the perfect Irish tweed coat pattern.

    Our first coat design in 2022 was the cardigan style tweed coat which as resounding success with you our customers. Peter’s exceptional eye and extensive experience in couture, tailoring and design are all over this coat and as a result, it is a pleasure to wear and to admire!

    This year's 2023 version uses a slightly heavier tweed and is available in our two current colour choices for our clothing collection, Plum and Green.

    With such extra attention to details given to the design and pattern, the coat wears so well on all who try it on. It is a timeless classic that will never date. A lifelong item of clothing that will be passed on to friends and family we expect!

    We are using Irish woven tweed and the coat is made in Dublin by hand with our incredible team of makers. The style of the coat is oversize cardigan style with a dropped shoulder, pockets and 3 buttons to the front. It can be worn open or buttoned and belted looks super too. This is a generous open cardie style coat it is not a fitted style coat.
