Original 1960s British Hooded Anorak

Original 1960s British Hooded Anorak

Code: 52975


An original British made hooded anorak dating from the 1960s and in good used condition. 

This anorak is typical of those made in the UK in the 1960s. They were a popular garment for walking and other outdoor activities due to their lightweight nature and waterproof qualities. This example is made from a plumb coloured cotton gabardine and features white knitted cuffs and white drawstrings to the hoog and bottom seam. The front fastens with a nickel plated 'Aero' brand zipper which is typical of the period. The reverse of the zip is marked 'Great Britain'. The interior of the coat is fully lined. 

The coat is a smaller size which will suit a 36" - 38" chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures - 

Chest - 22"
Inside arm - 17 1/2"
Outside arm - 24"
Shoulders - 15 1/2"
Length - 26 1/2"

The overall condition of the coat is good with some signs of age and wear. There is staining etc to the exterior as it has clearly been worn. There are also marks to the interior as shown in the pictures. All in all it is very wearable and looks great on but is not perfect. Please study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

A nice original mid Century smock style jacket with some great period details.
