It was a bit creased and crumpled, and appeared to have been in storage for a while, but you don’t often find a decent (real) Crombie at a car boot sale (Brighton Marina). All things considered, D was pretty pleased with this for £60; he steam-cleaned it and off he went with it for a week’s working-away. It’s slightly on the large side, but just about right to be worn over a suit-jacket as an extra layer or indeed, as an overcoat. It’s probably a few years old – not a style currently on sale, this shorter, squarish shape with the single pockets each side in this colour combination – but certainly, now straightened out, very presentable indeed. The labels look genuine, anyway, and given that the seller also had some (well-worn) Richard James Savile Row shirts on his stall, this looked like the sell-off of a once-expensive working wardrobe.
