Vintage 1980s Trench Raincoat by Aquascutum - Dark Navy - 44 R
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage trench coat made in Canada by Aquascutum of London. The trench is made of a cotton/poly blend and has a checked lining. It has all of the details seen on a quality trench coat - military style collar and lapels, drip flap on the left chest area, button down epaulets on the shoulders, adjustable straps on the cuffs of the sleeves, matching belt with metal rings, drip flap across the upper back and a kick pleat at the back. The collar can be worn up to protect the neck and the left lapel can be buttoned to the right in order to cover the neckline. It is cut with raglan sleeves and the buttons down the front are arranged in a double breasted style.
