1950-1960 Vintage British  Cashmere and Wool Moss-Finished Cloth Coat



1950-1960 Vintage British  Tailor-made Cashmere and Wool Moss-Finished Cloth Over Coat




Three-quarter length, double notched lapel coat. Known as a chesterfield coat, it is a coat that fits perfectly with adult words such as luxury, quality, and formal, but because it has a complete style, it is a fun piece with a nostalgia that can be worn out.











The form is authentic and classical, like the crystallization of dandyism, yet it fits in well with the modern age. The double-breasted design, with its shallow fit, does not give the impression of being too tight, which is a weak point of double-breasted suits, but instead creates a form that is accentuated by its design.











The modern look is created by daring to use only one row of buttons on the front side, even though it is double-breasted.














 The fabric’s elegant and understated luster in a mixed gray hue is a testament to the high quality of the threads and fabric.











The fabric, woven with spun yarns mainly from cashmere, is light and soft, yet has a deeply raised volume and a very warm touch.














The warm colors are full of elegance, unique to fabrics woven in England. The fabric, with its firm ground thickness and soft raised luster, will not fade even after many years of wear.











The darninig and stitching that adorns the cuffs and hems to decorate, rather than hide, the various damages that are proof of years of use and attachment.














The austerity of the calm fabric is belied by the prickly work scattered throughout. The scars from the feast of mischief makers, where delicious (good quality) wool is the feast, would normally be frowned upon, but this is ALTERATION’s way of taking the damage that should be carefully darned and concealed and using it against you as a gift of time that cannot be intentionally created.














The gentle line from the natural waist shape to the hem is perfectly balanced without feeling the weight of the voluminous fabric.














The rustic cotton broadcloth, which has replaced an old cupro lining, has just the right amount of tension and wrinkle, and the rustic look of the yarn woven in India is appealing.














The contrasting colors of the hand-matted liner fabric and the plump wrinkles created by the hand-sewn stitching eliminate the clinginess that clings to old clothes, and furthermore, dispel the heavy impression attached to old clothes, giving them a modern look.














Blind stitching by hand to sew the lining together. It is a job that takes only a few minutes to sew on a sewing machine, but it must be worth spending more than a dozen times that amount of time.















Small damages that are proof of the years that have passed. Rather than hiding them, we use darning and patches to show off the repairs.














The buttons are British 1950s-1960s Vintage deadstock. Most of the antler buttons normally found are made from buffalo horns, primarily Asian buffalo horns processed in Asia. These buttons were made in England from English bull (Hereford or Aberdeen Angus) horn, specially made to order for a famous English menswear brand.














The thickness of 4-6 mm, the leather finish on the reverse side, the natural mixture of brown, black, milky white, translucent beige, and muddy beige in the corners, the size of 27 mm, the four widely spaced large button holes that also give a modern impression, the rough shaving of the round cut-out shape, and the texture that makes the most of the bare look. The texture of the buttons is a gem from more than 60 years ago that has nothing but power and quality in every way.











The buttons are placed with narrower spacing and greater number than in the original state. This gives the coat a modern look without changing the form. The original buttonholes were also unraveled and hand-stitched using the same linen cord to match the newly created buttonholes.














The hem of the lining is floated away from the outer fabric to lighten the hem. A deep turnover is added for moderate volume, and hand-stitched accents are added.











The padded shoulders and thick interlining are typical of old tailoring. These have been adjusted to create a modern form that shows a classic yet unique look.














We removed all the pocket sackcloth that had been stuck to the pockets over the years, along with the dust behind the hems and seams that had surfaced when we dismantled the garment. The pocket sackcloth was reworked in rustic cotton.














The contrasting lining and hand stitching make the hems, which tend to look heavy on firm fabrics, look lighter, and further color the deep slits that give a sense of movement.











It is a one-of-a-kind piece of clothing that allows the wearer to enjoy a one-of-a-kind existence, sublimating “old and new, new and old” by fusing the “latest” of the time with modern dress and sensibilities.
