Martina is a fully-lined, oversized, double-breasted coat with a straight cut. It incorporates shoulder seams instead of front bust darts, a notched collar with a separate collar stand, and long, wide, two-piece, drop-shoulder sleeves. The front includes top stitched welt pockets, a vent in the centre back seam, and closure via 4 sew-on snaps. A tie belt is threaded through belt loops in the side seams, and Martina falls elegantly above the ankle.
