# 3 Sleeve Coat

coat with 3rd sleeve
 (+1, -2) [vote for, against]

3 Sleeve Coat is a coat with a third sleeve placed equidistantly from the other two sleeves, meaning that it's totally impossible to put it on incorrectly by accidentally placing the right arm in the left sleeve, or vice versa.

Of course it must also be a sort of pull over the head coat, except with the added provision of three zips placed equidistantly (again) between the sleeves for easier divestment. The collar is also correspondingly divided into three segments. The unused sleeve can be rolled up, or used as a type of captured scarf in the winter.

 The 3 sleeves would be separated by 120 degrees no? Which means each arm would be bent forward or backward by 15 degrees at the shoulder. Forward would be OK, a little hunchbacked perhaps, backward would be a somewhat ski- jump or high dive orientation. Why not 4 sleeves? Then the shoulders can be at a more natural angle, and you could get away with only two zips.

The real problem is remembering which pocket you left your keys in.

Won't this idea simply asymptote to a poncho?

That's if you start removing sleeves, OR adding lots and then sewing them together.

 We suggest making the garment as two identical, separable sides - thus having a duplicate closure at both "front" and "back". In fact, there is no front or back - they're the same.

Then, whichever way round you put it on, it's always correct.

Would an octopode version have 9 or 24 sleeves?

Yes.

Thankyou for clarifying that.
