This is a sharp looking coat, pants and cap is made of a light tan wool tweed fabric from the 1940s. The coat has dolman type sleeves and two slit pockets: One on either side of the front opening. There is one button at the top of the coat to fasten it at the neckline and 3 leather buttons to fasten the bodice of the coat closed as well as one leather button on each sleeve cuff. The coat is also lined with a soft quilted nylon fabric. The pants have adjustable straps, elastic in the waist and fasten in the front with a metal snap and heavy zipper closure. There is also a sewn pleat in the front of each pant leg. The cap has a flannel liner around the inside above the brim, ear flaps and an adjustable chin strap made of brown grosgrain ribbon which is fastened in place with a metal snap hidden by a metal buckle. This set is approximately a size 3T however, please see measurements below for correct fit.

The coat and hat are slightly darker than the pants (the color difference is almost unnoticeable). I think this might be because the coat and hat were originally cleaned and pants were not. The coat still has a cleaners tag on it. The elastic in the waistband has lost its elasticity, however, I do not feel that the elastic is essential to wearing the pants or keep them up. Also, the grosgrain ribbon chin strap on the cap shows some fraying but still can be used to keep the cap in place. There was a small moth hole approximately 1/8 inch in length that ai repaired and is now invisible. There is a label on inside of coat that reads "Styled by Acecraft Fifth Avenue -New York and another tag that says "This Coat Grows - Pull Bottom Thread To Lengthen". Now isn't that unique? They just don't make things like this anymore!
