I have a slew of wonderful topcoats and overcoats to pass on today--including two beautiful Chesterfields from Brooks Brothers and Tripler, cashmere overcoats, a Langrock Polo coat, a GORGEOUS overcoat cut from cloth that's a blend of cashmere and mink, Harris Tweed, West of England tweed, and more!

As always, I offer FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN THE USA; International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost!

Also as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

Please PM with interest and offers!

1) GORGEOUS Mid-Century "Kashlan" Overcoat (60% Cashmere, 40& wool)

SOLD

This is absolutely gorgeous! Union Made in the USA around the middle of the century, this coat is in absolutely EXCELLENT condition; it was clearly worn sparingly, possible being kept for "best", and was also clearly very well taken care of. This could easily pass as a recently purchased coat, despite its age.

However, close examination of its quality will show that this is quite a different beast to the typical coat that can be purchased today. This beauty was made for cold winters; it has a heft and solidity that is almost never seen in contemporary clothing. It's cut from a blend of 60% cashmere and 40% wool--and the cashmere in this blend dates from when cashmere was a thick, luxurious material, quite unlike the thin mall cashmere that is so common now. This is a very seriously luxurious coat.

The cut and tailoring do full justice to the quality of its cloth. A standard three button closure, this coat is fully canvassed, and has ornamental turnback cuffs. It is fully lined, and has a single center vent. The two front pockets are lined in cotton duck for longevity, and the right-hand pocket has an interior change pocket on the inner edge of the interior. It has lovely natural shoulders--something that it again hardly ever seen in contemporary coats.

This coat was part of the "Kashlan" line from Hart, Shaffner, and Marx, and carries a wonderfully evocative vintage label to this effect. It was sold in Wallach's, a long-gone tradly store that served the East Coast.

This coat is, again, in absolutely excellent condition, and will easily serve you well for another half-century with care. As such, it's a steal at just $125, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 23
Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 42 1/2








2) Chesterfield topcoat by F. R. Tripler.

This a true Ivy classic! Founded in 1883, F. R. Tripler & Co of Madison Avenue New York was one of THE most traditional clothing stores in Manhattan, making Brooks Brothers look positively racy. Indeed, so iconic was Tripler's that in the movie *Cosmopolitan* one of the utterly WASPy characters recommends Tripler's as the best place to buy proper evening wear.... and what better coat to don over your black tie than a classic Chesterfield?

Just as Tripler's was an iconic store, so too is the Chesterfield an iconic topcoat. A classic wardrobe staple from the 1920s to today, the Chesterfield is characterised by its lack of darting; a characteristic that it now shares with many other types of topcoats, but which was highly innovative when it was first designed in the mid C19th as a reaction to the highly shaped coats that were then in vogue.

This Chesterfield is a true beauty. Cut from classic wool tweed in a dark charcoal herringbone, it features the classic velvet collar that gives an air of both loucheness and elegance to the wearer. It is fastened with three buttons, and has a concealed placket to ensure that its silhouette is elegantly sleek. This cuffs of this coat feature four ornamental buttons. It is fully lined, and fully canvassed, and features a single center hook vent. It was made in Canada, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

A Chesterfield from Tripler's is a rare treat, and so this is a steal at just $95, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 23
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+2)
Shoulder: 20
Length: 48








3) CLASSIC Harris Tweed overcoat!

SOLD

Every man needs a classic Harris Tweed overcoat in his wardrobe, and so if this is your size, grab it, as it's a beauty!

This Harris Tweed overcoat is absolutely beautiful. At first sight this appears to be cut from a classic grey herringbone Harris tweed, but on close inspection it becomes clear that the tweed is heathered throughout with subtle shades of moss green, dark blue, and winter bracken. This is an extremely versatile coat, being equally at home in the country at the weekend or in the confines of a less formal office. This is an extremely well-made coat; it features lapped seams along the sleeves, shoulder, and back, and a single centre vent with a hook vent. It has ornamental turn-back cuffs, as shown. It is also fully canvassed, and fully lined. In fact, this Harris Tweed has all of the tailoring features that you'd expect in a more formal coat, and which are often omitted in Harris tweed overcoats, whose makers often seem convinced that the sturdiness of the fabric can compensate for a lack of tailoring! This was, of course Union Made in the USA.

However, it's not surprising that this coat has all of the tailoring details that you could want, for it was retailed at John Wanamaker's in Philadelphia. Wanamaker's was one of the great pioneers of the Department store. In 1874 he issued the first copyrighted store advertisement, which promised a lot.... and when it turned out that Wanamaker's made good on ALL of his promises (not something that all retailers did back then!) business boomed. In 1911 Wanamaker expanded his store, and installed in it the world's second largest organ. (This organ is still in the Wanamaker's store in Philadelphia--now Macy's--and is played regularly; this is something that you should most definitely hear if you're in Philadelphia, as it's spectacular!) Wanamaker also acquired a huge brass eagle from the 1903 World's Fair, and installed it on the first floor of the store--this became a popular meeting spot, and, like the organ, is still present in what is now Macy's.

This is a truly lovely Harris Tweed overcoat, and one that is far superior to most run of the mill Harris Tweeds. It does have one small flaw--the bottom button is snapped. However, if you wish, and are patient, I could no doubt secure you a replacement set of buttons for this coat, and have them replaced for $10--I'll send along the originals in the pocket if you so choose!

Given the quality of this coat, this is a steal at just $75, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 23 1/2
Sleeve: 27 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 18 1/2
Length: 43 1/3










4) Pure Cashmere "Kashmara" topcoat

Union Made in the USA, this wonderful coat is cut from the Old School version of cashmere--the thick, rich, soft, and luxurious fabric that gave cashmere its name for luxury, not the thin mall cashmere that is so prevalent today! The fabric is seriously heavy; this is a coat to be reckoned with!

The cut and construction of the coat do full justice to the beautiful fabric that it is cut from. A standard three button closure with two button cuffs, this coat features pick stitching on the lapels and on the flaps of the pockets. It is fully lined, and appears to be half-canvassed. It features a single centre hook vent at the rear.

It does have some minor moth nibbles, as shown, but these are not very noticeable when worn. Nevertheless, they are there, and as a result this wonderful vintage cashmere coat is likely best suited to events that are not office-related. It is accordingly in Very Good condition, and so is a bargain at just $59, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 23
Sleeve: 26 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 41











5) Faconnable Duffle Coat. MADE IN ENGLAND!

SOLD

This is WONDERFUL! Cut from a very thick and heavy loden green wool cloth in a wonderful broad herringbone weave this was made in England. The quality is outstanding--in addition to the thickness and warmth of the cloth the workmanship is absolutely first rate, and the front is closed by a RiRi zipper--the Rolls Royce of zippers than only appears on the best clothing. (Eastman use RiRi for their leathers.) The coat features two deep front pockets with lapped seams at the edges; it also has lapped seams along the two traditional shoulder front capes that are a feature of duffels, as well as around the rear shoulder cape, down the sides, and also down the sleeves and along the placket. The coat closes with a RiRi zipper as well as buttons, and is, of course hooded. There are ornamental sleeves closure tabs at the cuffs.

The coat is unlined, as is traditional, and the interior seams all feature contrast piping in British Racing Green.

This coat is in excellent condition except that it is missing a button. This does not affect closing the coat, as it also has a zipper, and could be easily disguises by moving the bottom button up to replace the missing one. The coat could also use a dry clean just to freshen it up.

This truly is beautiful, and given its quality and condition is a steal at just $50, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 24 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+2)
Shoulder: 21
Length: 36








6) WONDERFUL Vintage "Great Western" Jacket!

This is absolutely wonderful, and if it were smaller and fit me it wouldn't be here! Likely dating from the 1960s this is a classic and utterly wearable piece of Americana, being a thick and wonderfully warm wool Rancher coat in a bold Western plaid in grey, cream, moss and peat. It features two deep slanted and flapped pockets on the front and a classic faux-fur collar, as well as oversized buttosn fro ease of closure when it's bitterly cold on the prairie. The cuffs have functional cuff strapsn to tighten the cuffs against the cold. It features a quilted lining for warmth. The collar is designed to stand up, and there is a locker loop on one side and a button on the other so that it can be fastened into place.

This was sold by Gimbels, which closed in 1987 and was famous for having the largest Thanksgiving Day parade in the country.

This was, of course, made in the USA.

It is in excellent condition, with two minor flaws; a very, very small moth nibble on the top of one sleeve, as shown, and one of the buttons for the left cuff strap is missing; this could be easily replaced.

Asking just $45.

Shoulder: 20 1/2
Length: 35 1/2








7) VINTAGE 1960s Herringbone Tweed Topcoat

This is lovely! Although this lacks any identifying labels, this coat was clearly Made in the USA sometime in the 1960s; it has a classic 1950s/1960s cut, with wonderfully high, narrow lapels and a sleek silhouette. The colouring of the tweed is also classically late 1950s 1960s, being a herringbone in dark brown and black; the sort of muted color combination that was typical of the mid-century.

This coat has a classic three button front with a concealed placket to ensure a sleek silhouette. It is fully lined, and appears to be half-canvassed. It has a single center vent and two button cuffs. The two slash front pockets can either be used to reach through the coat to your jacket pocket, or else used as deep pockets in their own right.

This coat has no damage of any sort, but I'm conservative in rating vintage pieces, so this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. As such, it's a steal at just $49, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+2)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 39










8) WONDERFUL VINTAGE Dunn & Co. Tweed topcoat in West of England cloth

Dunn & Co. of England are among the stalwart makers of tweed clothing; their heyday was in the 1950s and 1960s, when their heavyweight tweed offerings became justly recognized as reprsenting superb value for money as well as evincing a particular form of British country style. So well known were they for their tweeds that no American academic visiting England could return without having bought at least one Dunn tweed jacket or coat!

This classic topcoat shows why Dunn were so well known. Dating from the 1960s judging by the classic vibrant 1960s lining and the muter earth tones of the tweed itself, this wonderful coat is cut from extremely hard-wearing and classic West of England tweed. The colourway and patterning f the tweed is wonderful, being a classic shepherd's check in tones of moss, light tan, and golden bracken.

It also has a lovely vintage Dunn & Co label, noting that they cater to clients in both London *and "the provinces"! :)

The coat features raglan sleeves for ease of movement, a three button front closure, and deep slash handwarmer pockets. It appears to be half-canvassed, and is fully lined. As is often the case with British coats it eschews buttons on the cuffs as unnecessary; it has a single centre vent. The lining is wonderfully 1960s... But, alas, it has multiple frays. These should be patched, but this would be an easy and cheap job. (Or you could have the lining replaced, but why would you want to lose it?) Given this, this coat is in very Good condition only--the tweed itself is in excellent condition--and so this is just $49, or offer.

Measurements:

Chest: 21
Sleeve: 35 1/2 (+2 1/4) (Measured like a shirt)
Shoulder: NA--raglan sleeves.
Length: 41










9) 38S Classic Grey Herringbone Tweed Topcoat

This is a lovely, classic, grey herringbone tweed topcoat! It has a standard three button closure, three button pockets, and a single center vent. It is subtly darted to give it a sleek silhouette, and features four very deep interior pockets, so all of your items will be very secure! Very well made in Czechoslovakia--which dates it, as that country no longer exists!--this is in absolutely excellent condition. Indeed, since it contains both its original inspection tag as well as the original spare swatch of cloth for use if any repairs are needed, and the original two spare buttons, I would venture to guess that this was worn rarely, if at all.

Asking just $35, or offer.

10) CASHMERE AND MINK Topcoat, from cloth made by Dawson's of Scotland!

SOLD

This is absolutely STUNNING! First, the cloth was woven by Dawson's of Scotland, THE premier Scottish cashmere specialist. Dawson's--most recently trading as Dawson's International, until it went into receivership in 2012--was founded in 1878, and quickly established itself as specializing in the most luxurious cashmere, a reputation that it sustained until its demise some 140 years later. The cloth that this coat is woven from is not, however, merely cashmere, but a blend of cashmere and MINK, which is quite simply one of the most luxurious fabrics around. (To be sure it's not vicuna... But it comes pretty darn close!) Moreover, this cloth was made when cashmere from any sources was seriously thick, warm, and luxurious--add in that this is Dawson's cloth, and the heft and luxury of the material becomes apparent the first time that you touch it. This is no thin contemporary Chinese cashmere, but the real thing from one of the premier Scottish cashmere specialists.

The cut and construction of this coat do full justice both to the cloth, and to the fact that this was originally retailed at Brownings, of Fifth Avenue--a store founded in 1934 that specialized in high-end traditional clothing. This coat is, first, double breasted--which, given the cashmere-mink cloth that it is cut form, makes it likely to be the warmest garmet you'll ever own! As befits its formal style it has peak lapels, which are beautifully shaped. It is fully canvassed, and fully lined, and has a single center vent. It features two button cuffs. It also features a deep side-built security pocket on the interior, and pick stitching on the lapels.

It was Union Made in the USA--although this is noted on the size tag, there is no interior Union label, so it is difficult to judge its age. It is, however, clearly a vintage piece, and has some minor roughening to the fabric, as it to expected with a blend of this sort, and because of this--and this alone--I rate it as being in Very Good/Excellent condition, as I reserve the grade of excellent for vintage pieces that are essentially mint.

This is truly a wonderful piece of sartorial history, and one that will give you decades of warm and faithful service if you care for it with the most minimal of attention.

This truly beautiful coat is a steal at just $145, or offer..... or, to put it another way, you could own a beautiful cashmere and mink coat from one of the best cashmere houses the world has ever known for roughly the price of a Chinese-made cashmere sweater from Brooks! ;)

11) MADE IN ITALY Waxed Cotton Jacket

Just to break up the parade of topcoats and overcoats, here's something completely different--a Made in Italy waxed cotton coat! Made by "Island Jackets" and billed as being for extreme cold weather protection (something that I am doubtful is true), this is a lovely jacket that's rather a cross between a Barbour and a LL bean Field Jacket. The waxed cotton outer shell is 94% cotton and 5% resin, which no doubt makes for a shell that is more water resistant than those of Barbour--although this is rather "crinkly" as a result.

The jacket features deep lamb chop pockets, like a Bean Field jacket, which are located just above the deep expandable flapped pockets on the front. This jacket features a right-hand shooting patch on the shoulder, a corduroy collar, and a twin vent; this can be fastened shut with snaps. The cuffs can be buttoned shut. The interior is quilted, and features a deep zippered security pocket. The throat features a fully functional throat latch.

This jacket does have a few minor flaws, which add to its character. It has some minor scuffs and staining, especially around the bellows pockets and near the cuffs, and it has a small snag hole near the right hand cuff. At first I also thought that it was missing a button from each of the bellows pockets flaps, but close inspection reveals that it only came with one button each side, despite having two buttonholes! As such, this jacket is in Very Good condition, and so it priced very reasonably at just $39, or offer.

12) Brooks Brothers Formal Chesterfield Topcoat. (ALMOST NWT!)

The Chesterfield is an iconic topcoat. A classic wardrobe staple from the 1920s to today, the Chesterfield is characterised by its lack of darting; a characteristic that it now shares with many other types of topcoats, but which was highly innovative when it was first designed in the mid C19th as a reaction to the highly shaped coats that were then in vogue.

This example is an absolute beauty! Made by Brooks Brothers, this is cut from solid dark charcoal woolen cloth--the most formal of cloths for a Chesterfield. The wool is extremely soft and luxurious, giving this coat a beautiful hand and drape--indeed, so soft is this that it could pass as cashmere. The cloth is perfectly complemented by the beautiful velvet collar, which together with the classic peak lapels provides an air of aristocratic elegance to the wearer, even if this is casually slung over an Aran sweater and a pair of jeans.

The coat is fully lined and fully canvassed, and has a single center vent. The two front pockets are both deep and secure, and the right-hand one features an interior change pocket.

With the exception of a tiny rub on the velvet collar on the left-hand side--something you'd likely not notice unless it was pointed out--this coat is in absolutely excellent condition. Indeed, it comes complete with its original cardboard sleeve tag, included in the interior pocket--which indicates that this coat was worn very sparingly, if at all.

Union Made in the USA, and likely dating from the late 1980s to early 1990s, judging by the script on the sleeve tag, this is a wonderful, classic piece of clothing, at a steal at just $125, or offer.

Chest: 21 1/2
Sleeve: 26 1/2
Shoulder: 19

13) GORGEOUS Vintage BURBERRY Tweed Overcoat!

This is absolutely wonderful--although I must confess that I have a serious weakness for these vintage Burberry tweed overcoats, as every single one that I've seen has been incredibly sturdy and beautifully tailored from very, very serious tweed.... The Platonic Form of the tweed overcoat!

This is no exception. Cut from a wonderfully thick, heavy, and warm heavyweight tweed in a classic vintage colourway of black and brown herringbone this coat is cut with raglan sleeves for ease of movement. This has a four button fastening in the front, and demi-peak lapels, as is appropriate for a heavy tweed overcoat. This is half-lined--showing off the superb construction that would otherwise be hidden by the lining--and features a single center vent. The seams along the arms and down the center of the back are thickly lapped. The cuffs feature adjustable straps to secure your wrists against the wind; all of the original buttons on the cuffs and the straps are intact. The coat features two very well designed slash pockets on the front; these are designed so that you can either use them as deep handwarmer pockets, or else reach through them to access the pockets of any jacket that you might be wearing underneath. Both of the original buttons to fasten these pockets closed are intact.

This coat also features a lovely vintage Burberry label, with the order handwritten on it!

It does have a couple of minor issues. First, there is some minor fraying to the interior leading edge of the left-hand pocket; this does not affect wear and cannot be seen when worn. The lining has been repaired professionally in the shoulder, and there is a small weave fault on the collar--likely there from new--and a tiny snag by the hem, as shown. There is also some wear to the leading edges of the cuffs, as shown. Given these issues this glorious coat is in Very Good condition, and so is an absolute BARGAIN at just $75, or offer... This really is a steal for a coat of this quality!

Sleeve: 36 (+3) (Measured like a shirt)
Shoulder: NA--raglan sleeves.
Length: 46














14) CLASSIC POLO COAT!

Not surprisingly, the Polo coat owes its name to the camelhair coats worn by Polo players between chukkas.... and as such it was originally an English, rather than an American, garment. But the English Polo had only a distant resemblance to what would quickly become an American style icon. They often lacked any form of buttoning, closing only with a belt, and were essentially glorified bathrobes..... which was fine for their original purpose of being casually tossed over the shoulders of unmounted players.

(Polos were also originally called "Wait Coats", as they were worn only while waiting.)

During the Edwardian era polo became popular with the East Coast establishment, and the polo coat quickly became popular with spectators and players alike. Guided by WASP frugality the original wrap coat was quickly improved to be a more useful garment, acquiring buttons, deep patch pockets, and the oversized Ulster collar, while retaining the functional half-belt at the back, and often shedding the original belt.

The American Polo Coat was born.

But being produced is one thing; becoming a style icon is quite another. The Polo was not long in securing this status. Its practicality and swagger was quickly noticed by the young men at Ivy colleges whose friends and cousins were associated with the polo set, and within a few years it became the coat of choice for the stylish Roaring Twenties, along with Stutz Bearcats, bootleg liquor, and--for the truly wealthy and adventurous--barnstormer biplanes sold off cheaply after the Great War. Indeed, at the 1929 Yale-Princeton game many noted that the Polo had supplanted the Raccoon coat among the Ivy set... and raccoons everywhere rejoiced.*

By the 1950s, alas, the Polo was in decline, supplanted by the double-breasted trenchcoat made popular by its Second War utility and style. It enjoyed a brief popular resurgence in the 1980s with its fascination with the romance and style of the 1920s and 1930s. Yet that it has declined in general popularity by no means detracts from its iconic status, and the Polo has since its inception always warranted a place in every well-dressed man's wardrobe.

Indeed, so classic is the Polo that a lovely example from 1915 (by Brooks Brothers) is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

And if you want one, they're available.... Brooks still stocks them, so does J. Press, Ben Silver, and O'Connell's, who'll be happy to sell you one for $1,400.

Or you could buy this!

Made by Taglianetti, this is a classic double-breasted Polo coat in the classic camelhair colour--please note, though, that I believe that this is a wool coat, although the fabric is not listed. It has a classic six button front, oversize collar, and two flapped patch pockets. It has the classic half-belt, and a horizontal lapped seam across the back providing a cape effect. The back also features a box pleat for ease of movement, and a deep single vent. The coat is fully lined, and appears to be half-canvassed.

It does have a couple of minor issues; there are two tiny moth nibbles, as shown, but these are hard to spot and could be ignored. There is a tiny amount of loose stitching at the top of the vent in the lining; this is an easy fix, or else could be ignored. And there is wear to one of the buttonholes.

Overall, then, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. Asking just $75, or offer.

15) LANGROCK OF PRINCETON POLO-INSPIRED TOPCOAT

Langrock was THE purveyor of Ivy Style during the Golden Age, and was THE premier menswear shop of Princeton. Alas, Langrock's strict and dogmatic adherence to "The Rules" of Ivy Style led to its downfall; in the late 1980s and early 1990s it ran defiant full-page ads stating that it was the ONLY store in America that adhered to the "American Look" of 3/2 sack jackets, Harris tweeds, and Scottish cashmere. But, the dogmatic refusal to allow ANYTHING with darts into the store led to its closure, as tastes shifted away from the Golden Age look, and Langrock was forced to fold.

So iconic is Langrock--in part for the stubborn refusal to alter anything Ivy--that its products are now highly collectible--indeed, I've supplied LABELS from Langrock clothing that was too far gone to be rescued to a prominent Ivy Style blogger, as even these are now becoming collectible.

Given this, this wonderful Polo-inspired topcoat (i.e., Polo coat inspired, not RL inspired!) is a real find. Cut from lovely soft wool with a wonderful hand and drape, this has a three button closure, although as you'd expect from Langrock the top button would typically be undone. This features two deep flapped patch pockets on the front, with lapped seams surrounding each of them, as well as pick stitching. The sleeves, center seam, and even the shoulders all feature heavy lapped seams; the single center vent is, of course, hooked, and features a retaining button to keep it closed if so desired. The cuffs have ornamental turn-backs. This coat is half-lined, which allows you to see the carefully-done vertical reinforcing stitching throughout, making sure that the garment holds its shape through the years. The lapels are peak, and you'd expect, and feature pick stitching--again, as you'd expect! This coat features a side-entry wallet pocket on the interior, and a deep interior security pocket.

This coat carries the classic black Langrock label, as well as the classic interior Langrock label.

This does have a couple of minor flaws; there is a moth nibble on the back, as shown, and at the shoulder, as shown. The lining is slightly fraying in the shoulder, as shown. There is some fraying to the interior change pocket, and a very small stain near the hem. As such, this coat is in Very Good condition, and, given that it's a Langrock, is a steal at just $75, or offer.

16) MADE IN ENGLAND Double Breasted "British Warm" Overcoat

This is absolutely wonderful--and in absolutely beautiful condition! Made in England, this is cut from cloth that is a blend of Cashmere, Wool, and "Other Fibres"--judging by the softness of the fabric this is likely to be a very small percentage of other fibres, likely added to provide strength and to guard against pilling, which even cashmere blends can be prone to.

Cut as a classic "British Warm" overcoat this is double-breasted, and has peak lapels--as you'd expect. It features three button finished cuffs, and a single centre vent. It has two deep front pockets, and is fully lined in satin. It appears to be half-canvassed. The heft of this coat is lovely--this is a seriously warm, and seriously elegant, overcoat! It is in absolutely beautiful condition.

Asking just $85, or offer.

17) Paul Stuart Tweed Double Breasted Overcoat

This is wonderful! Cut from classic grey herringbone tweed, this beautiful coat by Paul Stuart is double breasted with peak lapels. It has four button cuffs, is fully canvassed, and fully lined. It has a chain handtag, that is intact, and a single centre vent. It also features a very deep interior game pocket--oddly, for a coat of this degree of formality--as well as the more usual interior pockets for your wallet. This coat was Made in Canada.

It does have some fraying at the bottom of the lining, as shown; it has also had a small repair done to the lining to reinforce the area where the interior button is located. Given these minor flaws, this is in Very Good condition, and so it is a bargain at just $69, or offer.

18) WONDERFUL MADE IN ENGLAND Classic Grey Herringbone Topcoat in West of England Cloth!

This is lovely! A classic single-breasted topcoat cut from classic grey herringbone West of England cloth, loomed in Oxfordshire (which is in the east of England...), this was Made in England for Saks of Fifth Avenue. It has a three button closure and standard notch lapels, three button cuffs, and a single center vent. It is half-canvassed, and fully lined. This is a lovely, classic coat!

It has a couple of minor mars, however. There is some minor sag to the top of the interior breast pocket; this doesn't affect function, and can't be seen when worn. There are also three very small snag holes by the left hem at the bottom; these could either be rewoven, or else simply darned--or ignored!

Given these issues, this is in Good/Very Good condtion, and so it a bargain at just $50, or offer!

Measurements:


Chest: 22
Sleeve: 27 (+2)
Shoulder: 19 1/2
Length: 46
