Richard Anderson has launched its first ready-to-wear raincoat. The newly designed classic raincoat is light weight and perfect for wearing over a suit on rainy days whilst offering protection and comfort.Taking influence from the 1930s the discerning raincoat displays a fly front with vertical welted pockets, wrist wraps and tab and button on the collar. Inside detailing includes the chain hanger with two vertical inside pockets complete with zips. Richard’s unique styling is visible in the design showcasing his distinctive cut of the high positioning to the armholes and slim waist, giving its wearer a sharp and tailored finish. “This timeless coat is something I have been working on for a long time and an exciting addition to the ready-to-wear collection” says Richard Anderson.
Having chosen to keep with tradition the design incorporates the Ventile fabric which was created in the 1930s by scientists at the Shirley Institute in Manchester. Ventile was a staple fabric supplied to the Royal Air Forces and was a revolution in its time as it protected pilots from immediate soaking and prophesised to extend life expectancy to 20 minutes, the fabric is still used for RAF and NATO flight suits today.
This classic coat is available in Navy and Antique Bronze and is priced at £975. Available in store as well as online www.richardandersonltd.com
