If you are looking for a vintage coat that has a very classic style, this coat may be exactly what you have been searching for. This early 1970s Navy Blue and White woven wool houndstooth pattern coat is double breasted and has a wide notched collar. The coat is slightly fitted and has Princess seams both front and back. There are also darts at the bustline. The sleeves are long and there is a faux leather (vinyl) Navy Blue belt with belt loops on each side of the waist area to hold this belt in place. The six round buttons on the front of the coat are also covered in this same Navy Blue vinyl. There are hidden slash pockets on each side of the coat. This pretty vintage coat is fully lined with Navy Blue rayon material and there is an extra round button sewn into the inner right flap just in case you should lose one of the buttons.
Condition: Very Good
The only issue to note with this vintage coat is that the inner lining in the bottom of the sleeve openings has changed color just a bit and appears slightly purple in color. This may be due to body heat or perspiration. Although this coat is in very clean condition, this is something that can be seen when looking on the inside of the sleeves. It’s not a huge issue, but one that must be noted. The outside of the coat looks hardly worn.
There is a Union Label sewn into an inner lining seam.
Size: There is no size label in this coat, but it is most likely Size 8 by today’s standards. “14” is imprinted on the inside of the vinyl belt, but this coat is definitely not Size 14. Please refer closely to the Measurements given below to be sure that you get a proper fit.
Taken with the coat button and laid out flat.
