Vintage Paul Blanche Coat
I didn’t make this coat, only replaced the zip, but I thought We Sew Retro readers might be interested to see it as it’s a vintage coat given to me by my Nan.

I’m also hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on the brand. The label says Paul Blanche but I can’t find any information online. Any ideas?

Your coat is fabulous. Is it from the 1960′s? It has such a wonderful psychedelic vibe. ;)

Wonderful coat and you did a terrific replacement of zipper. For some info on Paul Blanche, check out http://www.etsy.com/listing/78154635/rare-60s-black-mod-shiny-vinyl-pvc or google “Paul Blanche”+rainwear. Well-known brand in the 50′s, 60′s , developed silicone-treated fabric for rainwear.
