Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a pre-owned mens wool coat made in England by Hammersley, a trademark owned by Alexandre of England.  The coat is made in a classic 1970s style, with peak lapels, shoulder epaulets, a six button double breasted closure, three buttons at the cuffs, flapped pocket at either side, a chest pocket and a 17” centre vent at the back.  The coat is fully lined in a bronze coloured satin rayon fabric.  There are two inner pockets.  The buttons are leather covered.  The fabric has a beautiful finish - excellent English quality.    

Label: Hammersley of England.  Hammersley is a trademark owned by Alexandre of England (London), a fine quality menswear retailer dating back to 1895 that became a manufacturer as well through a merger with John Collier in 1971.   

Retailer label:  Chas. Johnson & Son Inc. Montreal. Custom Tailors.  Chas. Johnson opened, I believe, in 1946, but closed in early 2007

Colour: Taupe

Sizing: The coat is sized as a 42 regular.  Please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the coat and the thickness of the fabric into account:

Shoulders:  20” across, from one shoulder/sleeve seam to the other shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves:  25” from the shoulder seam

Sleeve Inseam:  16 1/2”

Chest: 46” around 

Waist: 44” around

Length: 47”, measured flat

Condition:  It is in beautiful condition with no signs of wear, tear, stains or odours - really, I don’t think that this coat saw much use at all.  The fabric has a beautiful finish to it - this is very clean.

Excellent quality 1970s era English tailoring and very nice wool in an attractive colour - beautiful coat!
