The Teddy Coat
In Support of (Italian) Spectacle.
Early 1900s. Cars are open-topped and motoring is considered an outdoor sport. Not so bad in milder weather, but in the winter, you really have to want to go somewhere.
The gearing-up, on its own, can put you off. Goggles. Hat. Leather gauntlets. A scarf. A lap robe. Most essentially, a warm coat.
A duster is fine in warm months, but for cold, you need something substantial. Out of England comes the Teddy Bear Coat, in deep-pile alpaca fur fabric.
These days, we’ve got seat warmers and heated steering wheels. You can start your car before you ever leave the house. But where’s the excitement, the adventure, in that? The getting-noticed of it all?
You don’t need my permission to want to create a bit of spectacle, turn some heads, but you have it.
The Teddy Coat (No. 6731). Impeccably woven from the best Italian alpaca and bouclé wool blend by esteemed mill Lanificio Luigi Ricceri, makers of the highest-quality fabrics since 1848. Arguably the warmest coat you’ll ever own. Double-breasted polo coat design with patch hand pockets. Doubled turn back cuffs with button. Adjustable back belt. Bemberg lining. Genuine horn buttons.
Makes quite an impression. Rather provocative, rather swish. Imported.
