Lt Wgt English Raincoat
Item #:
... originally $895.00, now $447.50


Now the often imitated, but never duplicated, original and classic British tan raincoat by Grenfell of England is available in a featherweight, remarkably comfortable seasonal cloth. This coat has been the standard to which other makers have aspired for decades. (See Cary Grant in the classic movie “Charade.”) Last fall, by exclusive arrangement with Grenfell, we were proud to bring this coat back to America after a long absence. With the warmer days ahead, this lightweight variation will be an essential addition to your wardrobe. The 100% cotton coat is single-breasted, with a raglan sleeve, placket front, horn buttons, 3⁄8 lining, and is cut from a very light version of Grenfell cloth, specially developed in the 1920s to be light, strong, weather resistant, windproof and highly durable. Some of the traditional details shown here, including the collar button, add character to the overall simplicity of the styling. Sizes 39-48. Made in England.
