THERE ARE SOME ISSUES WITH THIS COAT, SO PLEASE READ ON
HISTORY/CONDITION: I have NO idea of when I got this. I think I may have had it since the EARLY 80s or possibly longer! Since I am not an authority on vintage clothing nor on Burberry, I cannot give you a specific date for this style, but I can tell you that it must be earlier than the 80s, possibly 60s 70s. It's quite cute and after a nice drycleaning, I think it may be even cuter. It has the plaid Burberry plaid lining, double breasted closure, back vent and top placket as well as sleeve cinches. A simple and classic design and appearance.
I would call this "Good Vintage condition." It has some issues, needs to be dry cleaned, but still maintains a wearable nature.
ISSUES: I have photos of the issues mentioned, and ENCOURAGE you to request these photos BEFORE you make a purchase.
First, there is an orange-tinged stain to one of the collar lapels. This many NOT be fixable when drycleaned. While you may opt to wear a brooch over the area, please know that this discoloration may be permannent; photo available for further inspection.
Also, the leather-covered metal slides on the sleeve cinches AND on the belt are damaged. These can be replaced, but cannot be fixed, as the leather is absent. photos available
This has been stored for a minimum of 20 years and really should be cleaned. I have made sure to keep the price of this garment lower than the usual price for similar items to account for the need to clean and possibly replace the metal bits.
The price reflects the damage and condition.

NOTES: Luxe, here! Thanks for visiting my BONANZA Shop! Here you will find my PERSONAL items -- these are not things I thrifted, but things from my personal home and wardrobe. I know the complete history of most of them. You are invited to ask questions BEFORE you purchase. I am glad to assist you. I ALWAYS have more pictures ready for you to see - just ask. It is important for you to know that my home IS a SMOKING and DOG-dwelling home. While the items here have been stored for AGES in an area where no smoking takes place, AND where Fudgy (the dog) does not go, you may be one of those folks who can detect micro-particles and allergens. I would ask that you DO NOT purchase from my shop if you are sensitive to aromas, allergens, smoke and dust. As you can see from some of the pics, I LIVE in the desert - the windy high desert ON A DIRT ROAD. It is dusty here. ALL VINTAGE SALES ARE FINAL, so please buy with care. That said, I hope you enjoy my shop and bookmark it for future enjoyment -- ESPECIALLY if you are petite and like clothing from the 70s, 80s, 90s.
