The fabric is twill because it’s hella sturdy and hangs well, it has enough weight. Lining is a red silk I magically had on hand. The tailcoat folds are very AC3 and while I wanted those for sure, I liked the red of Ezio’s outfit more than Connor’s blue, so…red it was.

Central State Hospital, Milledgeville, GA

Opened in 1842 under the original name Georgia State Lunatic, Idiot, and Epileptic Asylum, the complex encompasses 1,750 acres. The hospital grew to accommodate over 12,000 patients by the 1960s, though the population steadily decreased due to an emphasis on deinstitutionalization and a surge of patients moving to smaller community living arrangements.

It was permanently closed in 2010, and four years has done a lot to it.
