A Vintage Coat this one is my favourite!

Winter winds arrived in Dorset last week, am I worried? Not at all, because I have a whole wardrobe of coats waiting to be worn. I love coats, many are old, some are vintage and all are being unpacked from storage as I type this post. This vintage coat is one of my favourites…

My Favourite Vintage Coat.

The label says ‘Berg Of Mayfair’ fully lined and beautifully made as is usual with any vintage item. I wonder why we can’t still manage this today, without having to pay hundreds of pounds for a decent item of clothing? Perhaps I am being naive, is it the cost of manufacturing, thats to blame or the brands profit margins? If you know then please do inform me, how it all works.

This coat was made in the sixties only a couple of decades after the second world war, think about that? Today that would be like the last world war was in the 90’s !

Berg Of Mayfair Vintage Coat

My Berg of Mayfair vintage coat is elegant and goes with anything, perfect for layering as it has a wide cut on the upper arm. The tailoring on it is breathtaking, especially to someone who sews and knows how hard it is to make a flat piece of fabric fit a three dimensional human body. The best of British tailoring…

It’s all in the details:

The sleeves are bracelet length, the buttons are large and interesting, an inner tie belt to keep the wind out. The fabric is like a heavy linen with an unusual texture. Pure and simple, a delightful coat that could be worn all year  round in the UK…

Let the coat be the star of the show! Keep your outfit simple, add a scarf and an interesting vintage style handbag and ‘Bob’s your Uncle’

The Reasons I started to write about and feature my vintage clothes collection?

  • To rewear and not buy new clothes.
  • To share how I make a vintage item look contemporary by adding modern garments to complete an outfit.
  • Trying to help keep clothing and fabric out of landfills.
  • Hopefully I am highlighting to you how wonderful vintage can be?
