Condition: excellent. We used to clean every garment that came in to our studio, however, our local dry-cleaner has ruined some of our items so we can no longer have this service done for our clients. However, this looks perfect, and has no flaws, no odors.
The lining is pristine; it is yellow acetate faille.
The exterior fabric is a thick, luxurious slubby boucle, it is underlined, which adds warmth, and keeps breezes from sifting through a loosely woven fabric. There is no fiber label, it most likely is a blend.
This is not scratchy at all (like some woolens can be).
This type of coat reminds me of my mom; she always had a pretty one to wear to church on Sunday, and for events like weddings, bridal showers and .
