From the estate of legendary Australian actor, Charles "Bud" Tingwell. Tingwell was a veteran of more than 60 movies and 20 TV shows in Australia and the UK. Read more about Bud and the collection on my blog.
Charcoal grey/light black pure wool overcoat from the period when Tingwell was living and working in London. This is a very heavy coat for the coldest weather. The neck has a notched collar and the option of being worn buttoned closed to keep out those cold winds. The cuffs feature wide, shaped cuffs. There is a long vest at the back which can be buttoned down. Two front pockets have flaps and are lined with velvet. There is a heavy rayon satin half lining, which comes to below the armholes at the back, and one interior breast pocket. Made by Aquascutum, 100 Regent St, London. Late 1950s.
Chest 107-112 cm (42-44"). Coat measures 65 cm flat at the underarm (25.5")
Shoulders 52 cm (20.5")
Back 47 cm (18.5")
Sleeve 63.5 cm (25")
Length from below the collar at the back 105.5 cm (41.5")
Very good. A couple of tiny moth nibbles, you will need to search hard to find them. Some holes in the lining.
