This vintage late 1930s coat is a real rarity, a stunning wintery piece with ice queen vibes. Made of a wool boucle and in a rich, deep blue, it features the sort of tailoring that you only seen in the 30s. Sleeves are tailored to fit the curve of the arm with long darts. Princess seaming and pleats at the sides of the skirt give this a perfect silhouette. The fabulous is made of soft, heathered Rex rabbit fur, intended to mimic the look of chinchilla. The dusky blue wool has a wonderful boucle with subtle pattern, a textural detail you'll appreciate more in person. From my research, I've learned the label based in London and in this era was touted as "tailor made," the quality is evident in the interior finishing - rayon crepe with a braided trim, and hidden interior pocket edged with pleating. There's a hook at the back for hanging on hooks, as well. This beauty closes asymmetrically with two very large buttons. I do think the buttons are likely replacements. There's a hidden tab with interior button to keep it closed at the hips.Sturdy and fresh, with the look of a deep winter coat, and a weight perfect for places it doesn't snow.
Shoulders: 13" - this is a misleading measurement, as the construction allows for room in the sleeve

This coat is clean and ready to wear. The fur has minor shedding, not enough to be a concern for regular wear. There are a few scattered little snags in the boucle weave, nothing significant. I find no other issues to note!
