Long time, no blog….Upheavals or no, still spotting treasures: how d’you like my latest vintage find? I love this coat for its uniqueness and the amazing details. Although quite old, it has been really well cared for. There are no shoulder pads and the sleeves are flared with subtle shaping at the elbows (last photo). The belt is original and the gilt on the buckle and buttons are mostly present. The material is all wool but I haven’t seen a weave like this before. I suppose it might have been made specially but then in ‘those days’, that was the only way anyone got their clothes.
