Mens 1960s Classic BURBERRYS Navy Blue Raincoat, Mackintosh
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960/70 - maybe a bit later but I really am not sure. More than likely purchased in Canada.
ITEM: From my father's closet in Canada, the original owner. Here's a navy blue (looks black as the light fades) BURBERRYS raincoat or mac with the traditional plaid lining on the inside. Hidden 4 button front closure, 2 button pockets outside, epaulette sleeves, 2 inner pockets. Made in England.
CONDITION: Pretty darn nice for its age. The coat is very clean - almost like my father did not wear it all that much. No holes that I can spot in the canvas. Inner plaid is good.
LABELS: BURBERRYS. 67% Polyester/33% Cotton label on the inside left of the coat.
SIZE: Good question. Well, the other coat I have listed has an inner tag that states 44 Long. I'd say this might be the same (in terms of British measurement). BUT, the other measurements I can determine using a yardstick and measuring just the front (not all the way around) -
Armpit to end of sleeve - 16-3/4"
Top seam (just under the collar) on shoulder to end of sleeve - 31"
Length from back of collar to bottom of coat - 42"
Armpit to Armpit - 22"
Waist (where the two pockets are): 25"
Width of sleeve - 8"
Neck - 19"
FINAL COMMENTS: I, myself (female), am a size 18 at 5' 9-1/2". I could wear this raincoat myself but it would need to be taken in a smidge and the sleeves shortened a bit. So if a lady is thinking of this beauty - a seamstress can work miracles, I think. To buy new today would probably cost a small fortune!
