What a great coat! This vintage 1980's red lightweight wool, lined swing coat is a delicious, dark cherry red that will lift your spirits on any cloudy day!
The extra large coat has shoulder pads in the extended shoulders and pleats in the front and back yokes. The sleeves are pleated into a turned up cuff. The buttons on the collar are exposed, while the rest are hidden under a placket.
There are buttons on the side seam by the pockets that probably had a half-belt attached, but it isn't there any longer. One of the buttons is missing, and where it was is a small hole where the button pulled out.
Content tag: 100% wool, lining 100% polyester
Care tag: Dry clean
Size tag: 12, but it fit my size 18 model with room to spare.
