John Simons

Harris Tweed Overcoat – The Modernist


The John Simons overcoat is based upon a vintage Burberry model 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 particular model is produced in a beautiful Harris Tweed fabric. 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 British Mills and delivered direct from Chiltern Street. 

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

We recommend the following sizing advice:

36″ – 38″ chest = Size Small

40″ – 42″ chest = Size Medium

42″ – 44″ chest = Size Large

46″ – 52″ chest = Size X Large

*Please note that the above sizing advice is not definitive and as such we recommend utilising our size chart and comparing against a similar garment.
