Tweedy vintage 1970s coat by Alexon.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
There's something so nice about this coat, with its tweedy texture and subtle patterning! It's very seventies style - big, rounded collar, turn-back cuffs and flapped pockets - but it's been well made: the way the striped patterns has been used on the coat's features, and the fact it not only buttons right up to the neck but has a top and bottom poppa as well; and check out the rear half-belt with button trim!
Alexon is a label in its own right, of course, but the Alexon group (originally Ellis and Goldstein) was actually started before the first world war, and is still thriving, even in today's uncertain climate; understandably so, if the quality of this garment is typical of the manufacturer.
The fabric is textured, with dark brown and white nubbs and stripes of dark and paler orange, giving a very pleasing effect. The coat is fully lined and has a total of four labels: 'Dry Clean P Acetate Lining'; '60% wool 40% mixed fibres'; 'alexon Made in Gt Britain' and the size - 16.
It's in excellent vintage condition, with no marks or stains, rips or tears apparent, and the fabric has retained its original stiffness (that's too strong a word, but I hope you know what I mean?) Approximate measurements are: bust, measured under the arms: 42 inches/107 cms; upper arm seam, from the shoulder: 29 inches/73.5 cms; length from back of neck: 31 inches/79 cms.
