Vintage Burberry Prorsum Ladies Balmacaan Rain Coat w Removable Wool Lining Sz M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful vintage ladies' raincoat made in England by Burberry, also referred to by some as a "Balmacaan". The coat is a wonderful mix of simplicity and functionality - a standing collar, if desired, raglan sleeves, button-down slant pocket at either side, a matching belt that cinches the waist, adjustable button down belts at the cuffs, kick pleat at the back and hidden buttons down the front. It also comes with a removable wool lining should extra warmth be required. The coat is lined in Burberry’s classic check pattern.
Age: most likely 1970s, maybe 1980s
Label: Burberrys Prorsum Made in England
Material: Polyester & Cotton blend - exterior is made of 67% Polyester / 33% Cotton while the lining is 50%/50%. The removable lining is made of 100% wool.
Sizing: The size label on the coat reads 06 Long, but this may be a British size, so please rely on the following measurements for fit (note that the label on the wool lining reads “06 Petite” - I think that it is a medium size, but measuring a similar garment that you own may act as a good guide for comparison:
Sleeves: 27” long from the neck seam
Sleeve Inseam: 16 1/2”
Bust: 41”-42” around
Waist: 41” around, meant to be cinched with belt
Hips: 45” around, meant to hang loosely
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, odors or stains - this raincoat looks to have seen little use and was were stored and cared for over the years.
This is classic Burberry.....always in style.....great vintage piece in wonderful condition......
