This is an exceptional quality ladies’ coat made in England by Aquascutum of Pure Cashmere - the quality of the cashmere is excellent. The coat is made in a relaxed style with raglan sleeves, hidden button closure, full cut sleeves with decorative button down belt at the cuff and a matching sash belt. It has a diagonal pocket at either side. The exterior is made of 100% pure cashmere in a dark navy blue colour, almost black, and the interior is fully lined in navy blue satin that is woven with “Aquascutum” throughout. The coat has padded shoulders and a single 18” back vent/kick pleat. Age is difficult to ascertain precisely due to the classic cut, but the shoulder pads and Aquascutum label would indicate that this coat dates to the 1980s.
Sizing: The label reads “M 54” - I assume that this should fit a medium size, but please note the following measurements for fit, taking the cut and thickness of the fabric into account as well as the length of the sleeves and the overall length of the coat (measuring a coat of your own for comparison is helpful):
Sleeves: 28” measured from the neck seam
Sleeve Inseam: 15”
Chest: 45” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 46” around, meant to be cinched with the sash belt
Hips: 48” around
Length: 47 1/8”, measured flat
Condition: It is in excellent condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors. This coat looks to have seen little, if any, use and has been very well cared for and stored.
This is a beautiful quality coat - soft, luxurious feeling Cashmere, sure to kept you warm and looking great!
