Made in Scotland for Cording of London (a store that has been in continuous operation since 1839) this is an absolutely beautiful traditional Quilted Field Jacket.
The external shell is all cotton, and has been quilted for maximum warmth with minimum heft. The lining--which features one of Cording's famous signature tattersall patterns--is all wool, and is also quilted. Despite its lightness this is an extremely warm and comfortable jacket to wear!
It features two deep handwarmer pockets on the front--also lined in the same quilted wool as the main jacket--and has a twin rear vent for horse-riding. The jacket is secured by Cording's signature press-studs, as is the rear vent should you desire this. (Please note that as is traditional the studs are fastened on the "female" side, unlike buttons.) The cuffs also fasten with studs.
This also features Cording's own label, attesting to its quality.
This jacket is in Very Good condition. There is some minor bleeding from the shell onto the wool lining at the hem, and the previous owner wore the jacket with the sleeves rolled up slightly; since the shell has faded this has left the cuffs a slighter brighter (original!) hue than the rest of the jacket. And the shell has the usual minor scuffs from use. All of this, of course, should be considered patina, rather than flaws, and gives the jacket additional character!
Asking just $69, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
