This is an excellent quality mod style raincoat made of a rubberized fabric. The raincoat came from a large lot of French designer clothing dating to the 1960s and 70s, much of it unused, probably the estate of an importer. Unfortunately, the label was removed from the coat and a wool lining was sewn in, so I cannot ascertain the maker, however, most of the other clothing in the lot was by Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin and Dior. The wool lining could easily be removed without affecting the garment, should you wish to do so. The raincoat is cut in a wide, full body style in a shorter length. It has a black corduroy collar and a wonderful rounded patch pocket at either side. It does up with four plastic buttons down the front, but, unfortunately, two of the buttons are missing - you would need to either add two similar buttons, or replace all four. I haven’t done this, just because I prefer to leave pieces as original as possible. The interior of the fabric is finished in a colorful tartan plaid.
Label: None, but this is most likely of French origin
Material: Rubberized canvas fabric
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium to large size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the garment into consideration:
Shoulders: 17 1/2” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 23” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve Inseam: 16 1/4” Bust: 50” around, taken under the arms, meant to be loose
Waist: 51” around, meant to be loose
Overall length: 33”, measured flat
Condition: It is in excellent condition - very clean and well kept with few signs of having been used. These rubberized rain garments were all the rage during the 60s, but when they are found these days, there is often deterioration to the rubber - rare to find an intact piece like this.
April showers are coming - wonderful piece to keep you dry, warm and stylish all at the same time....
