Created for use by British officers amidst the mud and carnage of the trenches of the First War, trenchcoats occasionally took to the air as flying coats--one officer of the fledgling RAF writing home in 1919 stated that after he'd crashed in the Channel he'd had to discard his Burberry, but that it was returned to him later by a fisherman who'd rescued it after it had been floating in the sea for five days. Immortalized by Bogie in Casablanca, the Burberry trench was the favored garment of George Orwell, who wore it slumped inside London cabs dashing to the Censorship Department during the Blitz just after the All-Clear, as well as private eyes from the novels of Raymond Chandler to Dashiell Hammet. And, of course, on a gentler note Audrey Hepburn wore a Burberry trench as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. MADE IN ENGLAND expressly for Saks of Fifth Avenue--the Burberrys made for particular stores tend to be more desirable--this coat features all of the bells and whistles that make the Burberry trench THE trenchcoat to own. It coat has the classic Novacheck plaid, and the belt and the cuff adjusters have leather covered buckles. It features the multiple lines of stitching at the collar to ensure that when it's flipped up against the elements it stays up, as well as the classic "lambchop" throat fastener that's concealed under the collar; the leather buckle here is also unmarked. This coat has all of its original D-rings on the belt for your maps and handgun for when you lead your chaps Over the Top (no-one who's been around explosives in a professional capacity would ever hang grenades form this belt, despite the widespread myth that this is the use for these rings), has the traditional gunflap, and the vent in the back secures closely. The throat has its original brass fasteners for a tight fit in the rain, and the epaulettes are intact and original and functional. The coat has the standard deep internal pockets (for maps, or orders), and the button-able slash pockets in the front reach both to these and also to your jacket pockets underneath. The belt is also in excellent condition, with no pulls or wear to any of the holes, and no "wringing" from being (unwisely) tied. There is no fabric content listed, but I believe that the shell of this coat is the standard 51/49 and highly durable polyester/cotton blend. This coat features the classic scalloped cape. This coat has a few very minor issues. There is some minor sag to the sleeve cuffs, as shown, and it has a few minor scuffs and marks to the shell and the liner, as shown. It is also missing the small button that secures the vent--an easy fix! Because of these, this is in Very Good/Excellent condition. Asking just $165, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. Tagged a 46L, this measures MUCH smaller; I suggest that this is closer to a 40 or 42L. Chest: 23 1/4 Sleeve (under the arm to the cuff): 37 Length: 46 1/2 (from the bottom of the collar) Shoulder: N/A, as the sleeves are the traditional raglan cut. 2) Paul Stuart trenchcoat. MADE IN ENGLAND. This is beautiful! Made in Knaresborough, England, this is a wonderful modern version of the classic trenchcoat. This coat is secured by two buttons only; one large button at the top, and then a small button by the hem which secures the skirt of the coat in place, should you desire this. This gives this coat an exceptionally slim and elegant silhouette when worn, especially since it is beautifully cut. This coat features an adjustable throat latch, cuff adjusters, and leather covered buckles for both the belt and the cuff adjusters. It has a single centre vent, plaid lining, and a chain locker loop that is intact. It also has a zip on the interior for the lining, which is missing. This is an absolutely beautiful coat that's exceptionally elegant, and which cost a small fortune new. It has s small professional repair to one sleeve, as shown, a minor watermark in the back shoulder lining, as shown, and a small pull by the belt, and so it is in Very Good/Excellent condition, and is a steal at just $115 > 85, or offer. Measurements: Chest: 21 Sleeve: c. 34 1/2 Shoulder: NA--raglan sleeves. Length: 44 3/4 3) ANOTHER Paul Stuart Trenchcoat! 2) Paul Stuart trenchcoat. MADE IN ENGLAND. This is beautiful!

Length: 45 3/4 4) VINTAGE c. 1930s Original Macintosh Coat SOLD This is absolutely GORGEOUS and exceptionally rare! Charles Mackintosh was the inventor of the waterproof fabric that he used to make raincoats; indeed, he could be credited with being the inventor of the raincoat as we know it today. He developed the fabric between 1823 and 1943--the date of his death--and founded the company Chas. Macintosh & Co. Unfortunately, the company's fortunes only bloomed after Charles' death with the discovery of vulcanization, first by Goodyear in the United States and then separately in 1843 in England. In 1846 the Macintosh company purchased the rights to a process that enabled single-texture fabrics to be vulcanized, and by 1851 the process was so successful that the Macintosh firm's stand at the Great Exhibition--designed to showcase British international superiority in, well, everything--won significant awards for its clothing lines. Macintosh was purchased by Dunlop in 1923, and production on the original Manchester site only ceased in 2000--although the original factory had been destroyed by bombing in 1940 during the Second War. While "Macintosh" was originally only applied to Macintosh's products so successful and popular were they that competitors quickly were selling their wares as Macintosh coats--as the fierce warnings from the C19th advertisement below attest!--and the name "Macintosh" quickly because established as the generic name for a rubberized waterproof coat.... and then for any raincoat at all. This coat is a GENUINE Macintosh. Moreover, this is a beautiful example of a vintage coat. Judging by the wonderful vintage lapel this coat dates from before the Second World War. It was not only Made in England, but was Made in London And this is an utterly useable coat, despite its age! Cut as a standard balmacaan raincoat, this beauty features a button front with an elegant concealed placket and two deep slash front pockets, one of which reaches through so you can get into your trouser pockets without taking off your coat. It has lapped seams along the sleeves and down the centre back, and a single hook vent. It has straps to adjust the sleeves to keep out the wind, and a small button to keep the vent secured. All of the original buttons for the sleeve straps and the vent are present and intact. It is fully lined--and features that essential of the 1930s in the liner, the small interior ticket pocket! This is clearly an older coat--although you'd never guess that it's likely around 80 years old, but might think of it as dating from the 1990s, and used reasonably well. It has a small stain on the front, as shown--possibly the result of a tea spill after a bomb exploded nearby during the London Blitz--and a small snag on the left-hand elbow, both of which are shown. It also has a small snag in the bottom of the lining, as shown. If you get through your life with as little visible effects as this coat you'll have done well! This is is superb condition for its age, which means that it is in very Good condition overall. As such, this is a true bargain at just $125, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
