Full description:

A brown anorak (pullover-style) with fur-trimmed hood, made of windproof cloth. It has a drawstring hood, with a yellow shoelace with metal ends for a drawstring, and the hood is trimmed with white fur. The cuffs and hem should also have drawstrings (as indicated by the presence of buttonholes) but these are not present. The anorak has two breast pockets, each with a pocket flap and plastic button. Inside the neck of the anorak is a textile label with 'Arthur Bennett, 38, TRUMPINGTON STREET, CAMBRIDGE'.
