Cashmere Blend Cape Coat, 1980s
A rare 1980s vintage Valentino cashmere blend cape coat. In a luxuriously soft and fairly lightweight dark navy blue wool and cashmere fabric with a detachable cape that gives an high fashion look with an almost Victorian / gothic edge, whilst the classic colour and cut keeps the coat looking timeless. This is a rare example of a men's item under the 'boutique' label and the quality shows, a real gem for menswear collectors.
With an extended shoulder line created by shoulder pads that makes the cape look more dramatic or gives an edgy look worn without it. When worn without the cape, the coat still has a loose, cape like fit.
Estimated Size: Marked 50 which is roughly a modern men's Medium to Large but it has an intentionally loose, cape like fit so would also suit an XL. Would suit a taller man due to longer sleeves. Please check all measurements
