Reversible Rain coat - ala Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Winter is still around here in the South of Sweden, however we lack snow, which is good as one does not have to spoil one's shoes with mud and water. Whilst still Winter one has to think ahead of time, Spring will come and a gent needs a rain coat for the constant showers that usually occur in Spring time.
The rain coat I have in mind is inspiration from Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy novel by John Le Carré made to a movie. It is the reversible cream and blue rain coat as worn by George Smiley (Gary Oldman). The movie has some very elegant overcoats too worn by "Control" John Hurt and the Minister.

For the moment I will focus on the rain coat as worn by George Smiley (Gary Oldman) shown below in the movie Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
 Control (John Hurt) in a double breasted Great coat in herringbone cloth and George Smiley (Gary OldMan) in a two toned reversible rain coat.
I was thinking of getting myself the same kind of reversible rain coat but did not know where to get one from, until recently I realised that New and Lingwood had one as above and now on sale. I think this is a great rain coat, pay for one get two. Hmmm...
