Grenfell Trench Coat

Men's full length iridescent green coat in new condition.

I have a beautiful vintage double-breasted Grenfell trench coat in brand new / unworn condition, made from the legendary densely-woven cotton gabardine material by T. Haythornthwaite & Sons Ltd. Woven to a thread count of 600 threads per square inch, the looms had to be strengthened to weave the cloth. The quality of the fabric is miles ahead of Burberry and other raincoat makers. It is rain-proofed without synthetic finishes, coatings or membranes, since the weave of the cloth is so tight that the fibres swell when moist to create a barrier to water.

 

Grenfell is one of the oldest raincoat makers in the UK, a highly respected brand with its patented Grenfell cloth. The coat is superbly made with all the classic military styling, such as epaulettes, large storm flap, adjustable cuffs and belt with D-rings.


Condition
Unworn/NWOT/Deadstock. No wear/marks/spots/flaws/pilling. All buttons and buckles are original and in new condition. This is truly a rare item and to find a classic Grenfell in new/unused condition is next to impossible.

Length (collar to hem): 47"
