Title:
Plaid topcoat with vertical patch pockets at waist
Description:
Image includes small sketch of back of garment.
Unless their linings slanted downwards, it would be easy for things to fall out of these pockets. They're most likely for holding light objects (like the scarf shown here), or for putting one's hands into in cold weather. The accents dividing the sleeves mimic the way the coat closes in front.
