Produced in the UK by a Harry Palmer fanatic, the coat has taken at least a year 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 as you probably know is a waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric. So 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 selling for £375. Not cheap, but the coat is timeless and built to last.
