It’s On eBay: Huntsman Covert Coat (Dated 1963)

The covert coat is a spring riding coat – durable and mid-weight.  It was originally designed for riding, and the stitches on the sleeve are for extra durability in the face of brambles.  They’re tough to find in the US of A – even finding the cloth, a wool twill, can be hard.  This one was bespoke for someone in 1963 and is in lovely conditon.  And who can deny an eBay seller with a Hudson’s Bay blanket in the background and the username Mr. Wooster?

Starts at $14.99, ends Sunday
