1950s Camel Colour Pure Wool Car Coat, by Albatros, 42in Bust
Traditional and classic, this early 1950s camel car coat is simple and clean in design but oh so lovely. The colour is warm and the cut is flattering, designed to be comfy and snuggly but stylish too. The coat is unlined so you can layer up underneath, and fastens all the way up to the neck to keep the chill out. All you need is the classic car to finish off the look!
