John's Coat

Why does John's coat have patches on both elbows but only on one shoulder? It doesn't match - it's bizzare!

Re: John's Coat

It's because it's based on a shooting jacket. These are designed assuming that the shooter is right handed. The patches on the elbows are for when you are lying prone so that the elbows don't wear out and the one on the shoulder is to stop that area wearing out as well. I should say that the gun used would be a rifle not a pistol! Lol

Re: John's Coat

I'm not sure really? Just some normally useless piece of knowledge that I have picked up along the way! I think the jacket works well for John's character because it is stylish and has a slightly military look to it.

Re: John's Coat

Oh and one of the other coats he wears, the one with the string ties seems, according to the commentary to be universally hated by producers and writers alike. I think it makes him look like he has been taking styling lessons from Compo in Last of the Summer Wine.

Re: John's Coat

My view only Pros and cons of the jackets

..................................................Pro.......................................................................Con
The black one with leather patches.  great for warmer weather it's cotton .....................It's not waterproof.
The green one............................... at least showerproof............................................personal opinion it's hideous
The tan one....................................waterproof and warm. for winter............................too warm for hot weather

Re: John's Coat

In HOUNDS he wears all three of them (not at the same time of course!).
That wouldn't happen in real life. Just imagine the size of his bag.
