Richard Anderson Ventile Cotton Raincoat 38​/​48R AS NEW

Description

Richard Anderson is one of the very best bespoke tailor on Savile Row. Founded in 2001 (the first one in 50 years)​,​ the house combined the experience and style of many bespoke tailors in London. Both Richard Anderson and his associate Brian Lishak worked for Hunstman (the first as an apprentice of the great cutter Colin Hammick​,​ the second as Managing Director) and the other workers have worked for prestigious London tailors and in high-fashion. The house is well-known for their bespoke suits​,​ following the Thornton cutting-system learned at Huntsman and designed for hacking coats. It is a typical english suit​,​ with clear lines​,​ a bit of drape on the chest​,​ structured shoulders​,​ and suppressed waist. It is however more modern in the choice of cloth​,​ opting for lighter weight (except for tweed and overcoats) yet durable fabrics. A suit by Richard Anderson needs 80 hours of work by hand and is on par with the best Savile Row houses (Anderson & Sheppard​,​ Henry Poole​,​ Huntsman​,​ Davies & Son). Richard Anderson also offers a line of ready-to-wear and made-to-measure garments​,​ made in England with the highest quality possible. These items are classic​,​ such as navy blue blazer or suits​,​ crombie overcoats​,​ and tweed jackets. I propose one of their best-seller​,​ their ventile raincoat. Ventile Cotton is a fabric developed in England during World War 2 for RAF pilots in order to stay dry and protect them in case they were shot down over the channel. It is still used by both RAF and Nato for flight suits​,​ and made exclusively by Stotz in Switzerland. Very dense and light​,​ it is the perfect fabric against the rain during Autumn or Spring. The model created by Richard Anderson is light weight and can be worn over a suit or a sweater. It features a fly front with vertical welted pockets​,​ wrists wraps and a tab collar (also called storm collar)​,​ as well as two vertical inside pockets with YKK zips. It has a high armhole and a classic length (between the calf and the knee) that will protect you against any weather. The colour is a vibrant beige called Antique Bronze. The coat is a size 38 UK ​/​ 48 EU and is best suited for someone between 1m75 and 1m85. Check the measurements below to be sure it fits you.
