Absolutely stunning and very chic vintage 1960s fit and flair coat in the most *wonderful* shade of very dark muted teal green. The color is so unusual, and so great! An outstanding alternative to black, and a great (unusual) neutral.

Originally sold at Opgrand's, a women's shop in Bismarck, ND. The outstanding lines, quality of fabric and workmanship (as well as the color) are what attracted me to this coat, so I wasn't surprised to learn Opgrand's carried garments from high end designers, such as Jacques Heim.

This coat has elegant, sleek lines, with a fitted bodice that closes with a button on the left shoulder, then dressmaker's snaps to the waist. The waist is also tailored, and the skirt flares beautifully below the waist. Princess seamed, both front and back, and I love how the seam on the front right was turned into a deep pleat to echo the opening on the other side. Clever, and gives it a sculpted look.

It has it's original matching belt, with thread belt loops intact on the sides, and pockets! On both sides. (A coat MUST have pockets, as far as I'm concerned.) They're lined in satin, same as the interior of the coat.

Very smart, very well made, very flattering lines, beautiful and very unusual color, and it'll last you for a very long time. (Very very.)
