My talented relations

There are gifted people everywhere in my family. My brother-in-law, Adam, is one of the managers of Abbyshot Clothiers, a local Newfoundland company that makes trenchcoats and other clothing to replicate those seen in movies. My sister (his wife) is one of their seamstresses. Their custom-fit clothing is amazing stuff. Most of their business is out-of-province and much of it is out-of-country.

Very cool products and very high-quality work. Always a new idea buzzing around Abbyshot!

    Impressive selection. I recognise a few of the movies, and it looks like they made the items with great fidelity and skill.

    I’ve heard of them. It’s really a brilliant concept.

    I’m not sure if I was the first to interview them about it…I rather think I wasn’t. But I was one of the first and was always impressed by their work. I can remember wanting to order a coat, but I had a new girlfriend who was trying to break me of the habit of wearing trenchcoats.

    As she is now my wife and I don’t wear trenchcoats, it seems unlikely I’ll be getting one from them. Ah well…
