Origin[edit | edit source]

Paul Dresser (April 22, 1858 – January 30, 1906) was born Johann Paul Dreiser Jr. in Terre Haute, Vigo County, Indiana. After changing his surname, Dresser went on to become a well-known singer, popular American songwriter, and comedic actor of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

His coat somehow became imbued with both his musical talent and his health problems.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When worn, the wearer of the coat gains a singing voice that attracts the attention of anyone. Leading to much fame and fortune.

However, the wearer starts to gain weight extremly fast, trying to fill out the large coat. This fast paced weight gain can lead to health problems and most often heart failure.

This coat must be dry cleaned only, to prevent the build up of static. Use Noah Brannen's Desk Fan (with caution) to dry clean the coat.
