J. Press x Grenfell vintage "new" (deadstock) trench coat

This is a 1970s J. Press trench coat, with detachable warm liner, made in England from Grenfell cloth. It is in original condition, as it is a deadstock item that never sold at retail and was stored since then. I purchased it in 2014 at the Front General Store, a respected and well-curated vintage store in Brooklyn, New York. However, the coat is slightly too small for me, so I never wear it and would like to sell it.
Cut: Mens regular.
Size: 50 (Europe), 40 (US/UK).
Coat: 100% cotton.
Liner: 76% wool, 22% nylon, 2% cashmere.
All buttons, leather buckles and zippers are original and in perfect condition.
Additional images are available.
J. Press was founded in 1902 on Yale University's campus in New Haven, Connecticut. Additional stores opened in New York, New York; Washington, D.C.; and Cambridge, Massachusetts. These 4 locations are listed on the J. Press label inside this coat.
Grenfell Cloth was founded in 1923. It was named after Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a British medical missionary working extensively in Newfoundland, Canada. He required a cloth to be woven to protect himself from the snow, wind, wet and cold weather he encountered in his work. Cloth is made from 600 thread-per-inch cotton originally by T. Haythornthwaite & Sons Ltd at Lodge Mill, Burnley, in the United Kingdom. This manufacturer is listed on the Grenfell label inside this coat.
