Men's Long Formal / Theater/ Black damask polyester satin tuxedo coat by G&G Men's Clothier retail chain..made in Hungary in the 1970's. The size is 42X. The is a medium weight satin made for outerwear. The coat is lined with black on black fine striped taffeta. It has 2 side slit pockets on the side seam. There is also a 3" tear in the side seam that is easy to sew up. The coat can be worn either with or without the self tie belt. The coat is in excellent vintage pre-worn [gently] condition. The coat is being offered in the found condition. I suggest a dry cleaning to freshen it up after being stored for so many years. There are a couple of very subtle spots that would come out in cleaning. The double breasted buttons close / button on the opposite side which is the European influence. Both cuffs are missing buttons. The are 3 buttons out of 6 total. All of the buttons are made of same fabric as coat.
Here are the measurements.......
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER....19"
The men's clothing store, G&G, is still in business. I believe they have 3 locations in the New York Metropolitan area. G&G was heavily advertised in mid century both in newspapers and radio. By looking them up on the internet I found that they are still in business.
