Twelfth Doctor's Red Velvet Coat

The Twelfth Doctor's Red Velvet Coat is almost ready for pre-sale! As I am writing this, there are 16 hours, 45 minutes & 55 seconds to go. I don’t know about you but I’m finding it hard to focus today. My hilarious tiny size of a human brain is full of excitement, so there’s not much room for anything else.

The Doctor has faith that we will always make the right choice so we will be launching the Twelfth Doctor's Red Velvet Coat in an unconventional way! We agree with the Doctor when he says, “Some decisions are too important not to make on your own." We want YOU to join us on our journey in the making of this stunning coat. What does this mean? This means that we will regularly share product updates, product pictures showing our samples and what changes we made in order to make it as close to the Doctor’s coat as possible! We want to share our journey with you so you can be with us every step of the way in creating your coat. Like the Doctor, I’m not a hugger, so I have to admit that I am overjoyed to be hiding behind a computer right now as I have a feeling a lot of you are jumping for joy knowing that you are going to be part of the experience!

You may be asking why we are offering pre-sales much earlier than the delivery date.

#1 reason is because we are starting to be concerned about your well being!


Did you know that a skeleton is composed of around 300 bones at birth? And that this total decreases to 206 bones by adulthood after some have fused together? I thought this was suiting as whenever we start a new project, we have around 300 things to do in order to start the new product and as we continue to develop each layer, our to do list decreases until they have all been fused together to give you an end result of an amazing product.

So, starting now, we will have no more secrets! We want to go above and beyond so you can understand how your coat is made! We want you to be involved and hear your feedback so we can always improve and be the best we can be.


If you have any hesitation at all on what size to buy, PLEASE contact us so that we can help. Every brand has its own fit. For example, in my closet I have shirts & sweaters from size small up to size extra large! Please keep in mind that we do not offer customized or tailored sizing. We do our very best to fit the majority but some of you will fall in the middle of two sizes and some of you will fall perfectly into one of our sizes! Individually, we all have our own preference on how we want to wear our clothes. Some of us like a tighter fit while some of us find a loose fit more comfortable. We will help you choose how you want to feel in your coat.

If you’ve purchased an AbbyShot Twelfth Doctor’s Coat, and you’re happy with the fit, we recommend you purchase the same size in the Twelfth Doctor’s Red Velvet Coat.  


Gold coins are too heavy to ship, and Monopoly money, just won’t pay the bills, but we’re thrilled to have a couple of other options for you:

1. Pay in full using a credit card or PayPal.

2. Pay 50% deposit now to reserve your coat & pay the balance at a later date, using one of the methods above.


Make sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter so you can be the first one to see when we post updates on our blog. There is so much to tell you about what has happened so far and what is going to be happening in the future.

I will briefly list where we are with The Twelfth Doctor's Red Velvet Coat until I post more details tomorrow:

1. Final fabric has been chosen & color has been approved (I will go into more details later this week when I add more posts to this blog)!

2. Currently perfecting fit of coat

3. Waiting for samples of trims, such as the buttons, while the fabric is being made 

4. Working on your bonus gift (which is a secret right now!)

Here is a teaser of our most current sample. Keep in mind, THIS IS A SAMPLE, and we are still fine tuning it before going into production! The fabric color & buttons aren't final and this sample is for perfecting the fit & design only. You will see the fabric swatch image on the right that does show that our final velvet color is spot on to the original!

After a few distractions, I am saying bye for now, while there are now only 13 hours, 8 minutes & 32 seconds to go. But who’s really counting? (Wink! Wink!)

Until tomorrow....

    I’m in! Was up at 2.30am in the UK to make sure I was one of the first to get my order in. Very VERY excited!!

    Thanks, Simon & Hendrik! We’ve been having fun with the countdown as well. We certainly appreciate all of the enthusiasm! :)

    Yes, Hendrik, we did make a few small adjustments to the size chart, as we will discuss in an upcoming blog post, but generally the sizes have not been altered that much. ALWAYS check your measurements against a size chart. For the most part though, you will most likely find that if you were a medium last time, a medium should fit you as well this time.

    Size does matter :-)
    Looking forward to the opportunity of buying the red velvet coat. Last year I bought the dark blue 12th Doctor’s coat, medium size, which fits perfectly. You recommend buying the red velvet coat in the same size. But you have also changed the size chart. A bit confusing. Nevertheless, looking at that new chart, I’ll probably go for medium again.
    I also lke the fact that payment in two installments is a possibility.
    It will be ‘tomorrow’ here in the Netherlands some 6 or 7 hours later than at your location (Timey-Whimey Stuff), but I can hardly wait. :-)
