Bonfield Poacher's Coat
  • £400.00

This one-size ladies coat in a beautiful, slubby linen is derived from the oversized poacher's coat of yesteryear. It boasts a block-printed trompe l'oeil lining featuring the poacher's quarry - a hare, an eel and a pheasant. These are pin-stitched, as patches, into the coat's lining - fine, white cotton twill - and 'hung' from internal buttons. A coat pocket also hides a large pocket-bag with drawstring - it, too, is block-printed with a clutch of eggs.

The coat is ageless and size-less with a handmade, artisinal feel. Details include: deep raglan sleeves, patch pockets, two button front fastening, a relaxed collar with top-stitched collar-stand and hand-stitched button holes.

The colour is Slate grey.

All our coats are created by Janet Tristram at Bonfield in rural West Dorset.

Sleeve length: 28" Pit to pit: 23" Coat length: 43" 

For photographs of the block-printed trompe l'oeil lining, please see the Bonfield Poacher's coat in Oatmeal Japanese washed wool - it, too, is on our Garments page.
