A new style of coat that is actually two coats sharing the middle sleeve, which has been enlarged slightly to accommodate two arms at once. When not being worn by two people, the unused siamese coat would be folded around and attached to the back of the main coat, the extra sleeve forming a short wrap around scarf. The coat comes in three main style variations m+m, m+f and f+f, with numerous style and size sub-catagories. A man or woman out for an evening on their own would drape the siamese coat longingly beside them on an empty seat, inviting a would be partner to join them by filling the vacant sleeve.

       There would be an extra style variation in m+f category: m+fr and m+fl - to indicate whether the female prefers the right or left side of the coat.

       I like the name, the idea, and the use of the word 'longingly' to describe an empty sleeve. Bun.

       Ah!! How romantic! [+]. I want one!   

       Some practise in using these coats would be required. What if the couple try to walk either side of a lamp-post. Ouch! Tear! Rip!

       "Some practise in using these coats would be required" - and for the seduction, too - quite how do you effectively seduce someone when you are tied together side by side...?   

       I'm sticking to three-legged races for my seductions, but croissant for the thought.

       Will it have two hoods, to defuse the "hood up or down" argument?

       Hacking up my coat trying to make one,will send you it once made up.....

       This is a cold-weather trikini isn't it?

       I'll keep my eye out for these next fall, but I think I'd look a little too desperate if I were actually wearing one.

       Ah, the final half-bun doth I blesseth unto you. [+]
