    No, that coat was on e-Bay. The 8 button front and extra-large throat flap are things you almost never see today.

    tell me about it. that's pretty much the trench coat of my dreams right there. modern gab trench coat fabrics can't compete with that older stuff.

    Much as I like that coat, I have always hankered after one in tweed, and in Tweedman's Vintage, I have finally found what I am looking for.
    However, I have no idea what era it's from, or even if it's a repro copy. Any information would be appreciated.

    From the shape of the lapels and (so far as I can see) the absence of a button-hole in the lapel, I think it's from the 1970s. There were not many trench coats in the 1960s; the style reappeared in the 1970s. It's not, however, as exaggeratedly styled as some garments from that period, and I would happily wear it!

    Thanks for that Hal. It just has a classy look to it, I certainly am no purist, even if it was a reproduction, it has that 'look' that I like. And I wear what I like, and hang the purists, fashion police and anyone else who says that you shouldn't do this, or you shouldn't do that.

    I purchased 5 yards of fabric & had it delivered to my seamstriss. It came from a company in Oregon called The Rain Shed & it is a waterproof breathable material. I am expecting deliver in about 3 weeks.
