Late 1950s Rare Hermes Coated Cotton Trench Coat

A classic Hermes trench in a camel colored, coated canvas weight cotton! I love the fabric choice and its almost utilitarian feel. That mixed with the absolute classic lines of an original trench coat design make it feel surprisingly edgy even now. This looks like it has never been worn and is in perfect condition. You could potentially use a belt to cinch and add shape  but I sort of like the volume and shape as is. Plus it looks equally great worn open. This is one of those classic pieces that will never go out of style and it is an instant shot of sophistication over just about anything. The fact that its a collectible Hermes pieces that is extremely hard to find just makes it more of an item to covet. Very chic. Excellent, museum quality condition

Self lined in an almost rubber feel coating and the seams are all properly finished. It closes with the buttons at the front. Hand carved horn buttons and two pockets at the front.

I have included a photo of the 1952 Hermes coat that was done as a Trompe l'oell. This one is slightly older as it has Elasthan as one of its ingredients and that fiber was invented in 1958.
