John Simons

Donegal Tweed Dark Navy Long Overcoat


The John Simons overcoat is based upon a vintage coat famously purchased and worn by our very own proprietor in 1961, whilst working as a window dresser for Cecil Gee on Charing Cross Road. With a seamless one piece raglan sleeve, which flatters all shapes and sizes, our overcoat is the perfect combination of functionality and elegance.

This overcoat is reminiscent of early 1950’s American outerwear, in the period that predates the Ivy League Boom years of the latter 1950’s and 60’s. A veritable slice of Mid Century Americana, produced with fabric from one of the oldest Irish Mills and delivered direct from Chiltern Street.

This iteration is knee length but has the same A-line shape as the shorter variant. This particular model is constructed from a robust navy Donegal Tweed produced by historic Irish mill Magee. Hailing from the Irish town of Donegal, Magee have been producing the finest handwoven Tweed for over 150 years.

In addition to the above, our overcoat features:

  • 1950’s A-Shape
  • One-piece Raglan Sleeve
  • 100% wool outer
  • Finest Cupro Satin lining
  • Selvyt cloth lined side pockets
  • Adjustable cuffs
  • Centre Vent

Please do note that this longer version of our Overcoat is 8″ longer than the standard Overcoat.
