Fancy Coats are highly customizable cloak-worn coats and jackets created by GM Elysani and sold at Ebon Gate in Whimsical Wares. Four types of interlocking adornments are offered (pin, flower, handkerchief, and cufflinks), and each of the three adornment types has unique zests when unattached from the Fancy Coat. Unlocked Fancy Coats offer additional zests while worn.

Fancy Coat Analyze

You analyze your raw silk jacket and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:

This item must remain some type of a coat or jacket.  It may not be sleeveless.

You may adorn the front of the raw silk jacket with suitable pins, flowers, or handkerchiefs.

Currently, there is a vaalin-framed hyacinth cameo on the front of the raw silk jacket.

The raw silk jacket is unlocked.

Without an adornment attached, you'll find that you can WEAR, REMOVE, PUSH, PULL, RUB, NUDGE, TAP, and TINKER the jacket.
  Once you attach an adornment, you'll find you can also POKE, PINCH, PROD, and TURN the jacket.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the raw silk jacket for you or deepen its pockets.

Flower Adornment Analyze

You analyze your pale grey orchid and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions.

The creator has also provided the following information:

You may alter the description of the orchid, however the description must make sense for its type.  You may give the orchid a long description, but only the orchid's base description will appear when added to the Fancy Coat.  Show descriptions are not permitted.

This is a Fancy Coat (TM). You can customize the description, but it's limited to a base description (15/15/15). Why so limited?!

BECAUSE, dear friend, you may add adornments.

You tap a cluster of stark black mournblooms, which is in your left hand.

>push my jacket
You gently slip your mournblooms through the buttonhole on the left lapel of your cream twill jacket.

You glance down to see a slim-lapelled cream twill jacket with a cluster of stark black mournblooms on the lapel in your right hand.

The jackets and adornments can all be analyzed and they explain the scripts, limitations, yada yada. In addition to the flowers, you can also add pin-type items, as well as handkerchief-type items. Ooo, fancy!
