This gorgeous dark chocolate brown wool blend double breasted winter coat by Alorna features a deep v neckline with notched collar trimmed in black velvet and has a partial faux belt in back that has a slimming effect.
There is also black velvet trim on the sleeve cuffs, covering the buttons, and as an inset in the center back between the deep pleat.
This has padded shoulders, and a slight a-line cut.
Measurements translate to a contemporary size L (some call this volup, now):
49” long from center back of the neck to the hem
17.25” shoulder point to shoulder point
The label is Super Fina made expressly for Alorna. They recommend dry clean only. It is a wool blend.
It also has the red, white and blue union label in the side seam; this dates it to the 1970s.
This is in excellent condition with no flaws or odors; we have not had her dry-cleaned (we do not have a reliable one near us any longer) but we have double deep-frozen her to be sure she is pest free.
These city coats look great worn with boots with either a flat or even a higher heel.
