1940s Black wool crepe beltable winter coat - Large
A gorgeous early 1940s coat in black wool crepe, lined in silk which is lightly ‘quilted’ with patterned embroidery to the upper body. A loose fit, but with belt loops to draw in as desired, at a length which would make the body blouson, unless you are long in the torso. The chest features inverted seam detail and V shaping, with rounded neckline able to be folded back to form lapel. Good solid shoulder pads for that classic silhouette, and open front with no fastenings.
16” between shoulder seams
Chest of garment 42” edge to edge
Mid shoulder to hem 45”
24.5” sleeve length from shoulder
Excellent condition, an inch long tear to side of lining and the odd light snag to surface but nothing major. The lining just peeks ever so slightly below outer hem at one side which isn’t noticeable on
