Im looking for a method of closing a coat for Kaito from Vocaloid. As you can see in the first reference picture, he has coat similar to a Duster(trench) which is closed at the front just above the naval.
My first thought would to use a zipper, however i'm unsure if that would be the best solution, as their isnt a zipper evident on his coat(see ref two), and the coat I am currently making is tight enough around the neck as it is.
What would be the best way to tackle this problem? I have thought about putting buttons on the inside of it, but I need bring the two front half's as tightly close together as possible.
