I've seen the one that CY Productions makes, and in my opinion it's not that close to the look from the TV show.
Any leads are appreciated. Thanks!
Secondly, does the Green Hornet's coat really need to be green? I've seen pictures where his hat and coat are brown, black, grey, or some combination of grey coat and green hat and mask, so there doesn't seem to be a definitive outfit.
I've purchased a black covert coat, and a grey tweed one, both very nice, but very thick and heavy. I live in California and these are clearly meant for a colder climate. I'm afraid if I wear either to a Convention that I will wilt from the heat.
I've also ordered an olive green coat that may work, and purchased a made-to-measure wool coat that is very bright green (think Christmas green) somewhat similar to the one Scott wore for his outfit, but it doesn't have the hidden buttons, and doesn't look much like the one that Van Williams wore. It could be used as a Riddler coat since it's such a bright color.
Once the latest coat arrives, I plan to take some photos for comparison to share with the forum, so different combinations of coats, masks, and hats to show what I've found after attempting to source the different pieces. I can at least show what the CY Productions hat/mask looks like versus a less expensive off-the-shelf version for anyone that's interested, and maybe get some help deciding which combination looks best.

My site hasn't been updated in a long time and I would like to edit and add more choices for places to obtain GH costume items. Thanks
CY offers a wonderful coat but keep in mind, you're paying for him to go get it tailored so there's a logical and fair mark up for him to do the leg work. He doesn't have theses thing on a rack waiting.
And thank you for the kind words as well. *blush*
I really do feel that for the same ball park of what Clint is looking for (or quite possibly less) that you could get a jacket custom tailored in a fabric/color that you're happy with for your needs/climate.DrewMasie wrote: ↑Sat Jun 29, 2019 11:05 am Out of curiosity, has anyone purchased the CY Productions Green Hornet coat? Attached is a picture of what he offers, but to my eyes the seams are a little puckered, and the overall quality isn't great, especially for what he's charging. On the other hand, finding a coat this style in the correct color has proven to be nearly impossible, and I've put considerable effort into finding one. (What I really need is a Williams Studio level version that would justify the cost).
Still, if you're doing an interpretation of GH, then even a green trench coat could work. There are military surplus coats from various countries that are green, and not very expensive.
By the way, I posted some pictures of various coats in the Green Hornet Mask thread.
