BEN SHERMAN HALF-BELT COAT WITH SHEEPSKIN COLLAR. MADE IN ENGLAND. SIZE M.

BEN SHERMAN HALF-BELT COAT WITH SHEEPSKIN COLLAR. MADE IN ENGLAND. SIZE M.

Ben Sherman clothing is a wonderful mix of classic Ivy and Swinging Sixties London mod style. Founded in 1963 by Ben Sherman who had returned from America because of his mother's illness, Ben Sherman clothing was kicked off with a shirt modeled on the classic Ivy League OCBD..... But with a back hoop and a button on the back of the collar. Naturally, the Oxford cloth was all imported from the US, and the colours were preppy--pinks and pale greens. Not exactly what post-war Britain was used to.... Which led them to be adopted quickly by the Edwardian-inspired "teddy boys" of 1950s Britain, and then--more famously--by the "modernists".... a name that quickly became shortened to "mod", which was much easier to pronounce with a Sarf Lunnun (South London) accent!

Ben Sherman capitalized on his success with the youth market, and the brand is still going strong. And this coat shows why.

Cut as a double-breasted half-belt raincoat, this has plenty of stylistic details to set it apart--not the least of which is the beautiful sheepskin collar! This also features patch flap pockets on the front, twin cuff adjusters with metal buckles, and a single hook vent. It also has an adjustable half-belt on the back, and a complementary grey lining. It has a deep interior slash security pocket that's fastened with a snap, and a small button-closure interior pocket nearer the hem. It is cut from 60% cotton and 40% polyester--a similar blend to that used by Burberry for their standard raincoats. This is an extremely stylish coat, reminiscent of both the Golden Age of Ivy Style and the mods of the 1960s. It was, of course, designed in London--and then Made in England.

It has a small white blemish on the front, and is missing one of the small buttons on the back belt--a flaw that will hardly be noticed. Other than these flaws, this coat is in excellent condition.

Asking just $79 > 65, or offer, boxed, shipped and insured in the USA.

Chest: 21
