Mad Men Mink!

This vintage 1960s white mink coat is so luxe. I love the big collar and that you can wear it up or down. Also the bracelet sleeves are great too, especially if you want to show off a nice bracelet. Anything you wear with this Mid Century champagne mink will look like a million bucks, even if it's your pajamas. The blonde fur coat is in good condition. There are a few issues, but they are repairable. There is one hook. I also love that the fur is a bigger size. And you know the fur was expensive at the time because of the monogramming in the lining. The price is reflective of the issues. Grab yourself a beautiful bargain!


History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find.



Condition: Good. All the issues are repairable. First off, the mink is stunning. The fur is still soft to the touch. No dry rot going on. No fur loss. No bald spots. No molting. All good. Now for the repairable bad (except for maybe the stains), so really not so bad. There are stains in the lining near the monogram. Please see Photo 3. The hook and eye are loose (not hanging off) but could use some extra stitches. Okay, the collar needs repair. Photo 5 shows the issues. The top two pics show the same area on the exterior of the collar/shoulder. The area is 7" in length on the collar and 2" in length on the shoulder (vertical). The fur has come undo at the seam. The bottom two pics show the two different places on the collar's interior, again on the seam. The right side is about 1 1/2" in length. The left side is 4" in length. There is another place on the collar's exterior that has come undone at the seam that is not shown. It is 2 1/2" in length. There are also two small places on the backside of the coat's left arm, again on seams. On the arm , towards the cuff, about 2" in length and at armhole (where arm attaches to back paneling) about 1" in length. I believe if you are a fairly good seamstress, you could repair this yourself. Alternatively, a furrier can repair. The coat can be worn in its present condition, but in doing so, the damage is sure to get worse, especially at the collar/shoulder. The flaws affect the wearability in the fact that if they are not repaired, they will worsen. The coat is a GEM and Fabulous. Price does reflect condition and if you wanted to buy and wear for a season or two (maybe more) without repair, I believe you could. Please convo if you would like additional photos.
