OMG! One of the most amazing conceptual coat I have ever seen. The union tag I believe is 40's but the style is more like from the Suffrage era. It is in actually pretty amazing condition for age and materials.
There are flaws and most are too small to worry about. But one of the biggest is the gaberdine flaps that tie in front. As you can see in pics above one is torn in half and the other has been mended. I am sure if you have a good seamstress someone can replace these but I show them tied on model as in condition and they still work for now. The amazing thing is the liner is in almost amazing condition. There is a seam in mid back that is failed I had to search to even find this and it could be repaired. No other real damage to liner including no pit stains noted. The fur is a virgin lamb and in generally good condition. There is some where along the front edges. This is where the fur hooks are and so there would be wear. I don't think its a big deal for an 80 yr old coat. There is wear in back but it is a small circle and high up so again, not a big distraction. There is loose stitching on back left V where the material cover the edge of fur. It can be sewn. There is one hook or eye ( I cannot remember which) And the one button that is supposed to be there on the very top of front coat is gone. There may be other small issues I missed but these are what I noted. other than that the fur is not dry or cracking and the material doesn't show any obvious rot or rips.
I wish I was younger and thinner LOL

This coat is bulky and heavy and will require larger packing which increases cost. I am very rural and USPS is my only daily / weekly option. I can ship for less but it may take up to 21 days. See below for more information or contact me.
Purchase with confidence please feel free to read my reviews.
I am a rural seller whose only means of weekly post is USPS. I do offer other shipping methods for larger items but time to process can be up to 21 days. I usually will post this offer on items I know will ship cheaper. Also during Covid my rural post is not open every weekday. We have lost a postal worker and so there is only one left in this wee town. Please be patient. I do try to process and ship ASAP
+++++++ All sales final and as is. All items are vintage and used, I do not dry clean prior to sale and may have minor issues such as faint odors, pin holes, small spots, minor discolorations, loose buttons or snaps, piling, hidden or well done repairs not obvious on inspection, loose hems or seams not seen during inspection, hidden issues that would be unknown such as not holding up in launder, failing threads in seams, older elastic may not last, etc light scuffing on boots and shoes or worn insole pads etc.
Sold as is. I try very hard to list any major issues or not to list at all if damages effect the use of item but I AM SELLING VINTAGE NOT NEW so if you are expecting a new item vintage is not for you. I reserve the right to cancel or refund if there is an error in listing or problem with specific buyer.
READ ALL DESCRIPTION PLEASE Size and fit will depend on it.
I do not refund for fit based on tagged or implied size. Measurements are provided as is how to compare for fit. Over 100 pairs of footwear sold and great reviews when clients use the measurements and follow how to compare for fit. Its much more work to supply but only way to guarantee. I will use contemporary inch to shoe size online chart to give a guide to contemporary sizes but these too should not be used in lieu of measurements. If you need help contact me prior to purchase please.
Please be sure to read all policies
