We are absolutely thrilled and delighted to annouce our new 1940s Utility style inspired coat.
This coat design was influenced by a number of styles from the late 1930s to early 40s. From photos to original vintage items - we wanted to produce a practicaland stylish coat that would also meet the demands of modern life.
Where do we start to explain the many fabulous features on this amazing coat?
Strong padded shoulders and a high funnel neckline with single button and loop fastening beautifully frames the wearer and creates that iconic 1940s silhouette. Bodice has vent features over bustline which is also used in the back - this helps with movement and comfort.
There is a slight wrap on the coat - and there are press stud fastenings as closings. Nip in at the waist for a really flattering look with the tie belt.
We really appreciate the two good sized patch pockets on the front of the coat - great for a variety of items and supremely practical!

True to size , a wee bit large on shoulders for me . I ordered size 10.
The coat is warm, but a bit thin. Is good for winters of warm countries, I will not advice to use on a country whit below 0 temperature.
The shape is comfy is almost like walking around on a very elegant comfy dressing gown.
The fabric is Reilly multi color it goes with everything. I can see black grey and even some small quantity of orange and green.
It closes not only with the button and belt but with some snaps that become invisible when button up. They can also be moved if you need to .
It is everything I expected and more! A timeless coat with classy vintage feel which looks stunning with pants & boots as well as with dresses & heels. And most importantly: in a lovely natural material which will not show every hair of my cats and dog. Just be prepared that it is made for British winters so size up to be able to wear a thick layer of wool sweaters underneath if you live in a snowstorm-country.
