1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    This is a lovely and utterly functional coat--as you'd expect from vintage Bean! Unlike most down coats and jackets this has been designed so that the exterior presents as a normal raincoat--here, a classic single breasted, belted style with a lovely oversize mouton fur collar--rather than as a "puffy" ridged jacket. The down is contained in "packets" concealed in the interior of the coat--and unlike most "down" jackets this is the real thing, being fully insulated with goose down--rather than the more common mix of down with other plumage. This coat is thus exceptionally warm, yet very lightweight.

    The front is secured by oversize leather-covered and metal shanked football buttons, as well as a belt; the buckle is all leather and has no wear at all. This coat has two slash front pockets on the exterior, and a single centre vent. It also features a beautiful oversize mouton fur collar, with the fur being sourced from the USA. The sleeves have cuff belts. The original locker loop is intact.

    This coat does have some wrinkling, mainly on the sides, and a couple of minor scuff marks commensurate with use. It also has a couple of white lines across the mouton collar; I have no idea what these are, but they don't detract from the appearence at all.

    It was Made in the USA.

    Owing to these flaws this is in Very Good condition, and hence is a bargain at just $55, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International offers welcome, with reduced shipping available.

    This scuff appears *underneath* the overlapping vent flap, and so cannot be seen when worn:
