Original Vintage 1940s 40s Grey Brown Lightweight Wool With Red Stripes Coat
This wonderful coat was made from a lightweight brown grey wool with a red stripe in 1948. It is cut in a classic 40s shape with padded shoulders and a slightly nipped waist. The coat has a notched lapel collar and closes with concealed buttons at the front. It features two large pockets at the hips, inside of which we found a label with the original owner’s name and the date of 14th April 1948. There is a large vent at the rear of the coat and the inside is lined in light brown satin and bears the tailor’s label for Scotch Woolen Mills Tailors.
Shoulders: 15” seam to seam
The coat is in very good condition, however there is some straining to the neck seam as well as a tiny mark as pictured and some small marks, discolouration and repairs to the lining.
