Ooh, beautiful vintage Aquascutum swing raincoat from the 1980s. Love the color! Muted dark rose pink, which is actually a good, yet interesting, neutral color. It has a curved yoke front and back, with gathers under the yoke, and then falls open to a very full swing coat.

Small collar you can turn up, as I've shown it here, with button at the throat and pearlized dyed to match buttons down the front. It has two pockets on the front near the sides, with thread belt loops and a matching sash. I've styled it here with a wide gold belt (sorry, not included, it's mine :), and also shown you it with its matching sash in the close-up shot.

If you're unfamiliar with Aquascutum, it's a very high quality, high end British maker of fine raincoats. So well regarded, it has on their labels that they're made by appointment to HRM, The Queen.

This lovely coat is quite dramatic both in color and it's very full swing shape. There are small pads at the shoulder (probably it's early 80s), and it's fully lined in dyed to coordinate fabric that feels like acetate taffeta.

Meet the rainy season in style, I say!
