    • Size:
      •  Not tagged   ** PLEASE NOTE** There is NO size label. Based on the way it fit our mannequin, our experience as well as actual measurements, we guestimate it as a "M/Medium ".
      • Since it is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure fit, please refer to our measurements to assist you.
    • Approximate Measurements:
      • Shoulder (seam to seam):  16.5"
      • Sleeve Length (from shoulder seam):  24" (sleeves are "belled" and are 10" wide across lying flat at the bottom
      • Underarm:  19.5"
        • Measured from seam to seam lying flat from the backside.Please note, this is not a chest measurement. Without it being worn by someone, there is not a way to accurately provide that circumference.
      • Length (from TOP of BACK collar):  36"
      • Waist:  36"
      • Hips:  47"
      • Swing: 25" across the bottom
      • Falls to Approximately:  Knee length

Condition:

  • It is vintage pre-owned. It is in surprisingly good condition for a coat of this age. There is no shedding,odors or bald spots.
  • As shown, the lining shows fading/discoloration from age. Of course this can't be seen when wearing.
  • I noted when measuring that the back lining was hanging a little. It did not seem like that when it was on the mannequin. The lining is not un-stitched so I am not sure why it is. It looks like maybe it needs a pressing? Again, it wasn't anything noticeable when being worn (on the mannequin) so maybe it is that way when lying flat.
  • Lastly, the bigger issue is as shown in one of the last photos, to the left of the button, left side; there is a small area (approx. 1.5") in which the "skin" has lifted or "torn".  You could slide  approx. 2 fingers in it (although I didn't put my fingers in all the way for fear of causing more damage)  It is not obvious when wearing or at all actually.  I only found it by feeling around the coat for any tears. If you look closely at the last photo, you can see a small area that looks slightly "raised". (which I did intentionally for photos) I am sure someone crafty could find an inexpensive way to repair this. Maybe fabric glue? I am not sure. It is truly a unique gorgeous coat and worth the effort to "repair" all that has been mentioned.
