This is an exceptional quality men’s overcoat made of 100% camel hair. Camel hair is used due to its insulating quality - warm, yet relatively light. It’s been used since Biblical times, but made popular during modern times for use in making coats by British manufacturer Jaeger. The coat is made in a classic style with higher set medium width notched lapels, three button closure, and a large patch pocket at either side with a narrower flap, very natty. The pockets are lined in velvet, very luxurious. It has a 16 1/2” kick pleat and the coat has a mid-calf length. The coat has two interior pockets and is fully lined in a bronze coloured satin fabric.
