I now present a curious case, found only in Spain, and probably particular to Cataluña. The cotehardie (or whatever your preferred terminology-personally, for the men I would favor jaqueta or jubón) is parti-colored.On one side there is a solid color. On the other, you will see plaid fabric, cut on the diagonal.

Below you will see examples (including the single female version I have found) and my only attempt to recreate this garment.
