Question Balmain Jackets

What is the braiding called on this jacket?





I have looked everywhere and can't find the military type braiding.


Thank you!

I've been looking at this pic for a couple of days and really not sure if there's a special type of braiding used. It looks like it's just some continuous cord sewed down in a distinct pattern.
I think I'd just make my own by covering some cording (maybe 1/4") with fabric (inside out), then turning it right side out, so you don't have any lip showing.

Thank you, ShadeLadie

I've seen it up close before and some of the trim is jeweled or beaded.

I was wondering if it was 1/4" braiding, too. Alot of stitching ...that's for sure!
