Instant Karma MADCAP ENGLAND Retro 60s Afghan Coat
Madcap England 'Instant Karma' Mens Retro 1960s faux fur Afghan Coat with floral embroidery and fab furry trim! Madcap England take inspiration from the late 1960s era and the penchant for parading intricate Eastern fashions that matched the mood for transcendental meditation and experimental music. And what inspired Madcap England's interpretation of the classic Afghan Coat? Well, think John Lennon's Afghan Coat paired with Psychedelic Ruffle Shirt and Sporran at the Sgt Pepper's launch, think Jeff Beck and the era of 'Truth' with messrs Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood. Think Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett... Piper At The Gates! ... the list goes on! A truly unique outerwear garment, the Madcap England 'Instant Karma' Retro 1960s inspired Afghan Coat is sure to be a hit.
Madcap England 'Instant Karma' Mens Retro Afghan Coat. This superb Vintage 1960s style three quarter length Afghan coat in tan is impeccably crafted with sublime Retro faux suede outer accompanied by carefully tousled synthetic wool trim (akin to that of the Karakul sheep) and soft faux shearling lining. The finishing touch is the Retro Psychedelic floral embroidery that follows the placket down and runs along the hem. The subtle yet striking orange embroidery works perfectly to capture that essential 1960s look. The tousled trim features on the collar, cuffs and hem to add to the authentic Vintage Afghan Coat vibe. A soft padded coat that is sure to keep you warm... and what's more, you're sure to stand out from the crowd in this truly awesome outerwear masterpiece! Finished with side pocket detail and traditional concealed Afghan Coat fasteners. This is also the first garment to utilise Madcap England's new Psychedelic back neck label... which is very fitting for such an awesome article of Retro attire!
You can even attempt to wear it inside out a la The Beatles for The Magical Mystery Tour photo shoot! ... That said, we are firm believers that an Afghan Coat should be worn the right way round to fully demonstrate it's amazing Retro style!
Incidentally for more cool Afghan Coat imagery, The Kinks rocked some cool coats in their video for Apeman. David Bowie (1970) and Eric Burdon of The Animals (1967) chose to wear Afghan coats as part of their wedding day attire.
