This is your 'forever' coat - warm and stylish, elegant and flattering - made in an exquisite 100% British Wool.
Inspired by an original 1950s vintage coat, this is detailed and exquisite pattern cutting personified. You will not find detail like this on the high street and this beauty will be your friend for years.
Difficult to do justice with this coat description - the pattern cutting is extremely special, 12 panels shaped into the waist and eased out into a semi full shape to hem. Shoulder panel pieces are unusual and create a very flattering 50s shape emphasising the waist. Coat also has an elegant curved collar and seven 1950s inspired buttons to fasten.
Fabric is an British woven wool in a deep midnight blue. This is mid/heavy weight wool - this coat is heavy!
- full sleeves with turnup and V detail
- fully lined
- 2 vertical side pockets
- 7 50s inspired blue buttons
- collar shape taken from an original 1950s example
Length of coat from back of shoulder to hem - approx 47 inches
Length of sleeve from shoulder point - approx 25 inches
Proudly made in Europe
Dry clean only
Fit class: semi-fitted
Coats are designed to accommodate some movement and comfort room - feedback tells us that customers are buying the size they would expect to. However, this coat is not designed to fit over bulky knitwear/clothing.
The main fit area is the waist and the rib cage - the lower is free fitting and the coat is generous in the bust area too.
For more information on fit and sizing please visit our size guide. The measurements refer to 'your' body not the garment itself. Please choose the size that most reflects your measurements considering the waist as the most important fit area for this garment.
This is a very beautiful coat. If you are between sizing you are probably OK on the smaller size. I sized up and have room, though I am OK with that since I plan to layer underneath. The weight is not as heavy as I thought, but it’s very high-quality. This is probably more of a fall and lighter winter coat rather than a true winter coat for me in Canada. The colour is very very dark, almost black, with just a hint of navy.
I have just received my Midnight Blue coat and am thrilled with it. I bought it as a replacement for an original 50's coat which sadly got ruined. This coat has all the styling, detail and quality one would expect in an original. Such a feminine curvy style, plenty of room in the bust area with a fitted waist and a great length, plus the fabric is weighty and nicely draping in a gorgeous dark navy.....Perfect.
I am usually a size 8, but I had no choice in the sale, but to take a chance on a 10, perhaps ideally an 8 would have been snugger fitting, but it still looks fab as it is cut so well.
I may well opt for a size 8 in the other colour!!
