Do the Forties in style with this stunning true vintage tweed overcoat. There’s no maker’s label (not unusual for a genuine vintage item), but believe me when I say that it’s of outstanding quality. The stylings and materials – the rayon lining in particular – clearly date the coat to the 1940s, making it ideal as part of an authentic WW2 / CC41 / demob era outfit. The coat is tailored from a heavy weight tweed in a traditional herringbone design (the cloth’s actual character is best captured in the close-up photos, photo 7 in particular). The coat is naturally warm, breathable, and comfortable to wear. Features of the coat include: beautiful hand tailored construction; peak lapels and a double-breasted front; a fully detachable self fabric belt with metal buckle; genuine Bakelite buttons; two moleskin-lined hand warmer pockets; an internal wallet / document pocket; a rayon lining; a single rear vent. Remarkably, for an item that’s 70+ years old the coat is in excellent overall condition: initial impressions are that it’s flawless / immaculate, but close scrutiny reveals a little faint discolouration to the insides of the lapels (photo 9). There are also tiny repairs to two of the front button holes, and light wear and discolouration to the linings, all of which will be invisible during normal use (photos 10 and 11). Most importantly the coat is completely free of moth damage, scent or odour. The coat has recently been steam cleaned, brushed and aired (although you may wish to have it dry-cleaned prior to use). Don’t be fooled by the light creasing apparent in the pictures – this will naturally fall out with use. In terms of sizing the coat is unlabelled, but comes up as a generous yet short-fitting large. Worn over a heavy weight three piece suit the coat should be suitable for someone around 5′ 10″ tall with a 40″ to 42 chest. Worn over a vintage weight two piece suit the coat may be suitable for a 42″ to 44″ chest. Traditionally these coats were worn oversized and cinched in at the waist to create an hourglass shape – if you’re looking for a straight-up straight-down modern’silhouette’ then this is not the coat for you. There’s around two inches of spare material inside the cuffs, so it may be possible to lengthen the sleeves by an inch, making it suitable for someone around 5′ 11 to 6′ tall. Armpit to armpit 24 1/2″; armpit to cuff 18″; shoulder seam to cuff 26 1/2″; shoulder seam to shoulder seam 19 1/2″; collar seam to cuff measured along the outside of the sleeve 33 1/2″; across the waist 26″; length, base of collar to hem 46.
