This one is truly exceptional!!!
Well, for a start it is a very expensive, high specification coat in the Burberry trench coat range, Made in England and purchased from a London store.
Secondly, it features 100% cotton gabardine fabric and many details and features that you don't always find, such as storm flaps on the pockets, collar-mounted neck protector with leather-covered buckle, and brass D-rings on the belt.
Thirdly, it is that prized commodity: a genuine, vintage trench coat in absolutely first rate, nearly new condition.
Finally, it is a lovely, olive green shade, which makes a nice change from the more usual beige and looks gorgeous - if you are the sort of man who likes to stand out from the crowd, it really does look unusual and stunning!
You probably don't need me to tell you that Burberrys of London trench coats are currently a "must-have" fashion accessory, beloved and sought after by celebrities and dedicated followers of fashion throughout the world!
More than that: a Burberry mac is likely to be the most useful garment in your wardrobe. A staunch protector of your other clothes in all seasons of the year, and a friend for life! (How many of your other garments can you wear in the rain without a worry?)
It has the usual, classic, trench styling with easy shoulder line, raglan sleeves, double breasted front with gun flap on right breast, rear storm flap/rain shield, epaulettes, large internal poacher's pockets, cuff adjuster belts, horn buttons, leather-covered buckles and a wide belt.
Extra: The collar has its own storm flap with four buttons and strap with leather covered buckle. This can either be buttoned across the throat to keep out the wind and rain, or kept attached to the back of the collar by its buckle. Really looks the business!
It is worth emphasizing that the leather buckles on the belt, the collar and the cuffs (see picture) look as good as new, and the four D-rings on the belt add the finishing touch to a very impressive coat.
As mentioned above, its outer fabric is an extremely attractive, olive green colour, and its interior has Burberrys' trademark NOVA check design, featuring satiny, gold-coloured lining to the sleeves.
All labels are present and correct, including the authentication order label in the left-hand side pocket.
This coat comes to you in genuinely excellent condition. The outer fabric still has a crisp, new feel and looks as if it may have been worn no more than once or twice. The resplendent lining and the leather of the buckles are in absolutely perfect, pristine condition.
Bought new from Burberry a long, raglan-sleeve trench coat like this would currently cost you £1,000 or more (see www.burberry.com)

This coat will be suitable for a relatively tall man of UK/US chest size 42-44 (EU 52-54). Much depends on what you intend to wear beneath and how you like the fit. The model in the pictures is a chest size UK 42 (EU52) Regular. (As long as you allow between 8 and 12 inches (20-30cm) of chest room inside the coat, it will be comfortable with a jacket worn beneath). Please rely on the following precise measurements:
The coat measures: (house code 654)
26in/66cm across from underarm to underarm (hence 52in/132cm chest circumference)
48in/122cm long from rear collar (excluding width of collar) to bottom hem
Raglan sleeve does not require a shoulder to shoulder or shoulder to cuff measurement
Underarm to cuff 20in/51 cm (this does not relate to your arm length as the sleeve is deep set)

Just a few words about Burberrys' (or Burberry as they are now known):
Founded in the mid-19th century by Thomas Burberry, an English draper, the company has become world-renowned for the quality of its clothing. It invented gaberdine, kitted out polar explorers Amundsen and Shackleton, supplied clothing to the British army in the Boer War and World War I, invented the trenchcoat, and, if that is not enough to make you want one, has been awarded two Royal warrants by HRH Queen Elizabeth II and HRH The Prince of Wales.
