This product is unavailable

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.
