An original 1960s Men's Raincoat made by 'Burton' in the UK in the 1960s.
This raincoat is a classic example of British outerwear from the 1960s. Made from a pure new wool fabric of brown and blue tones the coat features a single breasted fly front closure, two front pockets and a vent to the rear. This very plain style was popular during the 1960 and the 'less is more' approach to details makes this a chic, stylish garment.
A variety of labels are present to the interior including a large makers label which bears the name 'Burton' and the coat style as 'Breakwater'. Burton were a very prolific manufacturer of menswear in the mid century period, as many readers will know. Another label bears the pure new wool logo and the words to match dating this coat to post 1964. The last label is a nice period example which reads 'Freedom Regd, Fabric by James Drummond & Sons, England'.
The coat is cut in a wide, flowing manner and is designed to be worn as an outer layer over a suit or similar. When laid flat it measures -
Chest - 24"
Inside arm - 17"
Outside arm - 25 1/2"
Shoulders - 18"
Length - 40"
The coat is in good condition for its age with limited signs of wear and use. Please study the pictures carefully before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn vintage item.
