Vintage Hudson’s Bay Candy Stripe Point Wool Blanket Coat
This fabulous iconic Canadian heavy wool coat is made with the traditional candy stripes of green, yellow, red and black on creamy white. It is slightly flared with darts down from the shoulders in front, has a lovely rounded pointed collar and two angled slash pockets. It closes with three large white buttons. There is a smaller white button on the back beneath the collar. It is fully lined with satin as are the pockets. I would call it a ladies stadium or three quarter length coat. It hits below my knees. Measurements: Back length 31” Shoulder seam to seam 13 1/2” Underarm to underarm across front: 20 ” Sleeve length: 24”
Label: This garment is made from Genuine Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket fabric Hudson’s Bay Seal The seal of quality and US and Canada patent numbers made in England.
I have owned this coat since the 1990’s.They are no longer made but originally retailed for $950. They are becoming increasingly harder to find. I have had it dry cleaned. In excellent condition with no obvious flaws I can find.
