I have a British Warm too. Made in England. Crombie. Dunn & Co. Beloved of TV costume departments for comedies. Captain Peacock etc.By coincidence I was thinking about Trenchcoats the other day when I was reading a book about WW1.
Luigi mentioned British Warm overcoats and a week or so Kingstonian mentioned (on another thread) Veldtschoen.
Clouseau said about timeless items in his opening thread and as these three items were worn by British army officers over 100 years ago I guess they would count as timeless ?
btw I don't have a Trenchcoat or a British Warm or a pair of Veldtschoen.
I think that Michael Caine wore a black Aquascutum trenchcoat in 'Get Carter'
Odd that the term was first used about kids growing up post war - so not even necessarily boomers - and the British book in 1965 with that name had interviews with boomers. Yet the name was attached to the next generation (thanks to the '91 book it seems).. I take it you are going by the '65 start date - there are apparently other definitions.I made the cut by two years.
