This beautiful wool vintage coat is a rich brown color with lighter brown faux fur trim. The label is "Miss B.R." and has an ILGWU union tag. In addition, there is a tag that says "Kahn's of Boulder, Colorado." I was not able to find any information on the Miss B.R. label in my research; however, Kahn's was a women's clothing store that appears to have existed in downtown Boulder from the early 1900s through the 1970s.

According to photographic guides to the ILGWU label on the Vintage Fashion Guild web site, this coat was made between 1963 and 1974.

The coat is heavy and warm and is lined with what appears to be a quilted nylon. There are no buttons; the coat is closed using the belt which is made from the same wool fabric. The beltcan be removed to give it a different look (shown in photos).

This coat is in excellent vintage condition. The only imperfection I can find is that one of the thread loops for the belt is detached at the bottom.

This coat is freshly dry-cleaned and would best fit a size 10 - 12, but be sure to check your own measurements against those below, and remember to leave some extra room or "ease" so you can breathe.

**This coat was featured in an Etsy Finds blog post titled "Cozy on Up"!
