This is a vintage 1950s faux fur coat made to resemble a curly lamb or (aka Persian lamb) coat. I think that this is the earliest example of a faux fur that I’ve had - I believe that it dates to the early 50s. The coat is made in black with grey trim along the collar and at the cuffs. It has padded shoulders, raglan sleeves, a collar that could be worn up to shield the face, and closes with three buttons and loops - you can leave the top button undone to create a deeper neckline. There is a slant pocket at either side. The coat is cut straight with a bit of an accented waist and a slight flare to the hemline. It is fully lined in a black satin fabric and there is a wool type interlining. It has a mid-calf length.
Label: Lorna Mae Original Montreal Fashioned by Cammy with an illustration of a lady dressed in 50s fashion.
Material label: None, but I think that it is made of wool. If you look at the backside of the material, there are a lot of tiny stitches. It looks like somehow that they pulled the wool and stitched it in place. Rather unique, I’ve never seen this before.
Sizing: There is no size label, and although this should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit (please take the style of the coat and thickness of the fabric into consideration):
Shoulders: 19” across the shoulder pads
Sleeves: 24” from the shoulder pad
Sleeve inseam: 16”
Bust: 41” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 40” around
Hips: 46” around
Hemline: 55” around
Overall length: 44", measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, staining or odour except that two of the buttons are missing their middle piece (see last two close-up photos for the complete button and the missing button) - otherwise, this coat looks to have seen moderate use and was well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful vintage coat - basically a wool coat, but created to look like a fur coat, early faux fur!
