This is one of those items of clothing that spans the decades, and has a revival every now and then. It has been seen again recently on TV shows such as Downton Abbey, Mr Selfridge and again in the series, set in the post war years, of Call the Midwife. I love the androgynous style of this coat. I found one in Urban Outfitters recently although I did have to cut about 6″ off the hem. Can’t wait to wear it. These coats were also fashionable in the 80’s and I had a pale grey one back then from Miss Selfridge.
