Vintage Mens Coat 100% Cashmere Topcoat Marcello Tarantino Overcoat Size L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a very nice quality vintage mens cashmere coat made by Toronto bespoke tailor Marcello Tarantino. Tarantino started his business in 1972 in the Yorkville district of Toronto and is still in business today, creating both bespoke suits and ready to wear garments. This coat is made in a relaxed style with padded shoulders, hidden buttons and wide notched lapels. It closes with three plastic buttons down the front and has a small button at the neck. There is a diagonal pocket at either side and the coat has a 17 1/2 bottom back vent. The coat is fully lined in a grey striped pattern rayon satin. I’m unsure of its exact age, but I would guess late 80s to early 90s.
Fabric label: 100% Imported Cashmere. The loop at the top interior reads “Tessuto Italiano”, which translates to Italian fabric.
Maker’s label: Marcello Tarantino Signature Collection. This is probably a ready to wear coat, but definitely a high end product. The Marcello Tarantino website explains how they combine the passion of Italian styling with the precision of Savile Row tailoring.
Material: Pure Cashmere. The fabric is a lighter weight, so, because Cashmere is a warm fabric, will still deliver warmth while being comfortable to wear.
Sizing: This is a large size, probably a size 44, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the thickness of the fabric and the style of the coat into account (measure either a similar coat that you own or compare to your body measurements):
Shoulders: 21” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 24 1/2” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve Inseam: 15 1/2”
Chest: 49” around
Waist: 46” around
Hips: 46” around
Length: 48 1/2”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odours. This coat looks to have seen little use and was well stored and cared for over the years.
Exceptional quality fabric and easy to wear styling, extremely soft and definitely originally a very expensive coat - difficult to buy 100% cashmere coats today due to price, great opportunity to own a beautiful coat at a reasonable price!
