These are preview shots and the coat isn’t quite ready for sale just yet, but we thought we would let everyone in on the upcoming 1966 Harry Palmer raincoat by Lancashire Pike.
Produced in the UK by a Harry Palmer fanatic, the coat has taken at least a years to get to this stage, but shouldn’t take that long before it becomes widely available. This is pretty much the finished raincoat.
The people at Lancashire Pike have done their best to stick to the original 1966 look in terms of the style – so a wide collar, button fly front and with a changeant two-tone lining. The outer is Stone L24 Ventile, which is you probably know is a waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric, ideal for the job.
If you don’t like stone, alternative versions in navy and black should be offered further down the line.
Each one will be made on a bespoke basis to suit the individual and the UK-made raincoat is likely to sell for around £375 taking that into consideration. Saying that, it should be a timeless coat that’s built to last.
When we get conformation of the raincoat being ready for sale, we will let you know.
