This fabulous authentic 60s menswear coat by Campus is made of a classic Glen plaid in autumnal shades of orange and brown with tan.
It has set-in sleeves (rather than raglan cut) and a placket down the center front that hides (and protects) the buttons.
It's length is what was referred to as "car coat" length: long enough to cover a sport coat or blazer, and therefore long enough to sit on comfortably (in a car).
It is a water repellent "all weather" coat with a novelty print embroidered satin label showing the sun beating down on one end, and rain drops coming down on the other.
Besides having a gorgeous copper colored jacquard satin lining, this also has a zip-in faux fur lining that adds cozy warmth once the chill winter winds start to blow.
This is also labeled "wash n wear" with instructions on how to do so.
35.5" long (the zip-in lining is 26" long)
6.25" from the neck point to the shoulder point
The BEST way to determine fit, is to measure a coat of your own that fits the way you like, then, compare those measurements to those listed here.
A guy with a 48" chest is considered large to extra large in American sizing; the measurements are of the coat itself, so this would best fit someone who measures a couple of inches smaller, to allow for a layer of clothing, as well as for ease of movement .
This is freshly cleaned and ready to wear, in excellent condition.
These are terrific to wear for football weekends, or trips to the country, searching for antiques, and/or harvest festivals! They're built to wear over a sport coat or even a suit, but they look amazing over a thick fisherman knit sweater, too.
Many associate this sort of jacket with guys like Frank Sinatra, and of course, shows like Mad Men and Astronaut's Wives Club.
