Hiya everyone. I'm going to be making a military jacket soon, and of course, those are never complete without trim. I'm a little lost as to what the best type of trim would be, so I thought I'd get some ideas from you guys. It doesn't have to be the traditional gold or silver,  I'm more interested in the types of things I should look for in a good trim.

Thanks, I hope this makes adequate sense Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Hi =o)

I think the main thing is that it is durable and will hold up to being bumped, brushed, snagged, WASHED!

anything made by Wrights is good. The decorative look of braids (silk), cords, and tassels is fabulous, but on the other hand, not washable well without fraying. I would suggest that maybe you make those removable from the facket and not sewn on for that reason. For permanent ideas there is always metallic rick rack!

Thanks, that's a good idea. I was hoping that it would be more military inspired and not too literal of an interpretation (not that i haven't seen some lovely versions of those) so something like that might be a really good touch With any luck i'll get it finished soon and I'll be able to access a camera so I can start posting some projects on here Smiley.
