This piece is divine. Made in the 1940s by Barnett-Hutton of London, it is one of the best coats we've ever had.
Made from a warm burgundy red self stripe wool, the tailoring is beautiful and the clever use of the fabric, with the stripes running in different directions, is exceptional. It has broad shoulders, a nipped in waist, deep cuffs with button trim, smart collar and a full, pleated skirt. It is fully lined and has a belt with an oversized buckle.
Please note the colour is more burgundy than the red that is showing in the photos.
The coat is quite thick and the measurements have been taken on the outside of the piece so, to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar garment you already own. It has been tried on a 40" bust with a t-shirt underneath and it was too snug so is best suited for up to a 38" bust but could work on slightly smaller if you like to layer under your winter coat.
Flat bust 20"
Flat waist 17"
Flat hip 22"
Shoulders between sleeves 14"
Neck to waist 16.5"
Neck to hem 46"
Underarm sleeve length 17.5
Cuff depth 4"
Very good with only minor points to note;
- there is a 10mm darn on the back of the coat on the right hip area, just below where the belt sits - see photo
- there are 6 small holes in the lining and some marks, not seen when worn
- the belt is very slightly lighter than the coat
- the backing on the buckle is worn - see photo
The coat is heavy and will be sent via courier, fully insured.
