Vintage Aquascutum Raincoat Red Wool Gabardine Ladies Size M 10
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage raincoat made in Canada by Aquascutum of London. The raincoat is made of 100% wool gabardine in a striking red colour. It has nice simple lines with none of the typical flaps and straps seen on a trench coat. The shoulders are padded and the sleeves are turned at the cuff. It has a collar and medium width lapels, each with a buttonhole. It has a diagonal pocket at either side. The only closure is a button at either side of the neckline in order to close the neck, and otherwise, the waist cinches closed with the use of a matching sash belt, a nice casual look. The coat is lined in red acetate fabric and has no kick pleat.
Age: There is a tailor’s label in the pocket with a written date that appears to be “Mai 93” - a little difficult to read due to fading of the writing.
Label: Aquascutum London Made in Canada
Material: 100% Wool
Sizing: Size 10 is indicated on the interior pocket label, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the fabric and the style of coat into account:
Shoulders: 16” across approximate (difficult to measure due to raglan sleeve cut)
Sleeves: 28” long from the neck seam
Sleeve Inseam: 17”
Chest: 47” around, again, misleading as a measurement because of the cut of the sleeve
Waist: 50” around, uncinched, but meant to be cinched with sash belt
Hips: 52” around, meant to hang loosely
Length: 48”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, odors or stains - it is quite crisp and looks to have seen little, if any, use and was well stored over the years.
This is classic Aquascutum.....always in style.....very nice quality fabric…..striking colour that is sure to be noticed!
