THE WITHNAIL AND I COATS
For me the choice was Withnail's, but being only 5'8 .... It would be out of the question for me to wear it. ☹️.
Richard E Grant wore that coat too well and won the - Withnail & I wardrobe coat competition.
Paul McGann finished a brilliant 2nd by the way.
So it begs the question... (Been dying to write that)
What happened to the Withnail and I coats?
Well, back in 1999 they were auctioned off... but do you think a man of my calabre would leave it there? Click the big pic above.. see if it still lives?
However, fans of the 'Withnail' coat, need not weep, because a lovely replica is available...
A snip at - from £950 and i'm not being sarcastic, see Phace fashion coats...££ - and this storms it.
But how do you wear it?
If you clicked the link you saw Chris Evans attempting to wear it, and that was the original. Maybe it's easier to wear the replica, it is beautiful.
As for the original?
I'm afraid real Withnail's only need apply.... ☑️ "Chin Chin..." ❤️
