CoSTUME NATIONAL nylon coat with western details from the early-to-mid 1990s. Made in Italy.
In excellent used condition.
This unconventional coat is an apt demonstration of Ennio Capasa's forward-thinking tailoring. Based on a classic car coat, the design has been reworked thoroughly with Western yoke panels and an oversize spread collar. Welted waist pockets, wide cuffs on the sleeves and a single vent on the back complete the design.
The silhouette is worth noting, featuring wide shoulders and oversize curved sleeves. Equally unusual, the fabric is nylon canvas that has been treated to give it a washed appearance with subtle texture variations. Its underside has been coated with a layer of polyurethane to give it water-repellent properties. The interior has a single pocket and is fully lined in cotton that has been quilted with padding for increased insulation.
