Exquisite Original 1940s 40s Volup Vintage Off White Gabardine Swing Coat
This stunning coat was made from off white gabardine in the 1940s. It was cut in a classic swing coat shape with strong padded shoulders and a free flowing fit below. The sharp collar leads to a single metal robe effect button which fastens the coat at the neck. The slightly fluted sleeves add an easy elegance to the coat and there are functional pockets at the waist. The back of the coat exemplifies the superb quality of stabilising in this piece. There is a strong geometric shoulder seam, which emphasises the broad shoulder line and below this seam the back of the coat was constructed in a number of straight panels which gives it added swish and movement. Inside, it is lined in rayon and does not have any maker’s labels.
Shoulders: 16 1/4” seam to seam
Length: 29 3/4”
The coat is in very good condition with only a few faint marks as pictured.
