An original British 'stores' coat made by 'Harpoon' in the 1970s.
This style of coat was very popular from the pre war period through to the 1970s and were a common sight in England. These work coats were worn by shopkeepers, store keepers and many other people. They were designed to keep the wearer's clothes clean without having to wear a full set of overalls.
Made from a khaki coloured sanforized cotton drill, the coat features a single breasted front which fastens with rubber buttons. The cut of the coat is unchanged from earlier examples and it features a notched lapel and three patch pockets to the front, through pockets are located to each hip and the rear features a single vent.
Inside the coat the original label is still present and bears the maker's name of 'Harpoon Brand' below which is the size of 34. It also states the material as 100% cotton.
When laid flat the coat measures -
Chest - 20 1/2"
Inside arm - 18 1/2"
Outside arm - 22 1/2"
Shoulers - 16 1/2"
Length at rear - 43 1/2"
The coat doesnt appear to have seen any previous use or wear and is totally wearable. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item which has small issues commensurate with age.
A classic British work coat with a nice label.
