I love Dr. Horrible's coat, seen here:

with larger screencaps here:

I'm thinking of making a hip-length version in olive green as a Halloween costume/everyday jacket.  I like the slightly rumpled texture of his jacket.  What kind of fabric do you think that is?  Is it just unlined 100% cotton twill, or...something more interesting?  I almost think I can make out slubs, which makes me think linen blend, but it's not crumpled enough for that.  Maybe a linen-look?

I'm pretty sure it's cotton; maybe a thick cotton-rayon blend. The wrinkles look too soft for linen, imho.

I googled "labcoat material" and got some good hits. I figure whedon and co just got a real labcoat, so that one in the vid is probably made from real labcoat material like cotton, polypropylene and polyester.Basically a thick cotton mix would work.

There are some good ideas here: http://doctorhorrible.net/costumes/

The lab coats they have listed both seem to be polyester.
