Offered is a rich, sophisticated late 1940s coat made of the most striking red wool. This decadent coat is a casual shorter length - not so short as a jacket, but meant to show off some of your outfit. The wool really is special, made in a macro herringbone that takes what is often a subtle detail and makes it a focal point - each direction of lines is 3" across, making each repeat of the pattern a full 6" - these wide lines meet in chevrons on the sleeves. The shoulders are thickly padded with the rounded shape of later in the era, and an attached scarf finishes the look. The scarf and wide cuffs are trimmed with soft, glossy black astrakhan lamb fur. The lining is a sleekly lustrous back satin, making this beautiful coat a delight to wear. This coat closes only with a button and hook at the neckline. It would be phenomenal belted.
