If, like us, you are in the UK then you don't need me to tell you that it's pretty nippy outside brrr. As you know I really do love the winter but I feel like I am currently in a relationship with my fluffy blanket to be perfectly honest! Of course the best thing about winter is winter fashion with lots of layering and one of the most important investments has got to be a good vintage coat. Here at My Vintage we have some absolutely beautiful vintage coats from glamorous long 1940s vintage coats to cute 1950s swing coats and funky 1960s mod coats to statement 1980s vintage coats. We also have some fantastic vintage fur coats, vintage denim jackets, vintage trench coats, vintage raincoats and everything in-between.
So for this week's blog post, I have hand picked my Fave Five from our current range of vintage coats. I have to say that this one was particularly difficult to choose just five as we have so many that I love! You can shop for even more vintage coats in our Women's Vintage Outerwear or our Mens Vintage Outerwear departments but for now, lets jump right in...
1 - 1960s Vintage Peach Vinyl Raincoat/Mac Freesize £40
This is such a cool and unusual find from the 1960s. Made by Klass, this uber 60s Mac is made from 100% vinyl in a warm peach tone. Double breasted longline raincoat with collar and large front pockets. Ventilation holes under each arm. Eight chunky dark brown buttons and matching dark brown trim. Non stretch vinyl, can be worn on many sizes and over layers. In very good vintage condition.
2 - 1970s Vintage Elgee Green Wool Jacket Size 10 £55
This is a beautiful stylish vintage coat from revered 60s/70s tailors Elgee of London. Vivid emerald green ribbed wool in a shorter fitted style. Large double collar and four chunky front buttons. Finished with two decorative faux pockets to the front. Non stretch and fully lined. Lightly padded shoulders. In very good vintage condition.
3 - 1970s Vintage Beige Wool & Cashmere Coat Size 10 £75
Beautiful vintage coat made from pure wool and cashmere by 1970s brand Sixth Sense. Stunning tailored style with double rounded collar and chunky stitch edge detail. Double breasted with chunky gold edge buttons and large faux pocket flaps with slit pockets underneath. This is such a high quality coat and fully lined.

4 - 1970s Vintage Wallace Sacks Genuine Sheepskin Coat Size 12 £80
We love this genuine sheepskin coat from 1970s Wallace Sacks. Deep chocolate brown in straight boxy shape with chunky front buttons and contrast edging details. Two front slit pockets. A genuine sheepskin coat will give you unbeatable warmth, the ultimate cosiness! Made to a high standard. Non stretch and in very good vintage condition.
5 - 1970s Vintage Aquascutum Coat Beige Wool UK Size 14/16 £140
This is a stunning vintage Aquascutum coat made from pure wool in a creamy beige colour. Single-breasted with collar and chunky buttons. Belted button detail to cuffs and two large front pockets. Fully lined. There is a little loose stitching on a small area of the linning and where the side vents are, the fabric has pulled a little. Overall in very good vintage condition.
I hope you love these gorgeous winter warmers as much as I do - both stylish and practical. A vintage coat really is such a great investment as it will enhance so many different types of outfits and stay very much in-vogue for many seasons and years to come. Vintage fashion is the very antithesis of fast fashion - it is high quality, made to last and offers endless kudos in the style stakes.
