Amazing. At first, i thought this was 1940s; it definitely has all the qualities of a 40's swing coat; the labels inside are 'NIPON COUTURE" and "FORSTMAN FABRICS 100% PURE WOOL" There is also a size label (8) and a UNION label (red and blue on white). It could be 80s does 40s, so it may very well be 80s.
Coat is jet black - the pix are lightened to show details. It begins with a stand up, mandarin style collar with a small gap in center at top of buttons. It has puffed sleeves and the piece of fabric that goes all around the top of bodice (front, sides, back) forms a little shoulder "cap" with it's double strip scalloped edges (teh scalloped edge is attached to the piece over bodice, but not to the coast itself so it will catch movement in the wind. It ends with a triange in back and scallops its way down from the shoulder seam to center of bodice in front. Round black shiny buttons go down the front for closure and end 21" before hem of coat, so it is easy to move in; there is a large 1940s era snap at collar above right of top button (hidden when snapped). Big, lined, hip level side slash pockets (entire coat is lined in a black satiny fabric). Swing coats are meant to be at least slightly loose all the way down, esp in waist and hip area ... makes for the wide sweep hem a/k/a swing.This coat is in excellent condition; it is clean and ready to wear and STUNNING !
Very warm and heavy (shipping is based on weight, has to go priority mail and may not fit in flat rate box - if i am off on the shipping, i will refund overage or eat extra).
