This authentic beige BORG Borgana coat was sold through the Joseph Spiess Co. in Elgin, IL most likely in the late 40's or early 50's. Set-in sleeves that are full and gathered at the roll back cuff. The "fur" is in excellent condition with just a couple of small areas of discoloration. The lining has what appears to be a water stain near the hem but has to rips or tears nor are there any tears to the inset pocket linings. There is a crocheted loop sewn into the left side, midriff height where the lining meets the fur. There are no ribbons sewn into the right lining which you sometimes find as a means of closing these buttonless coats. So maybe there was a button or something at one time?? Its hard to measure these swing coats for size but here goes:

Sleeves: 23" when rolled into cuffs
Shoulder width: 18" or a little more
Width across the back from armpit to armpit: 26"
Length: 44"
Clean buy the fur coat method.

This is probably somewhere between a size 10 and 14. It is supposed to fit full and loose so simply doubling the width/chest measurement wouldn't apply. It is probably best to consider the shoulder width. Convo with questions if you have any.

An interesting note: There is a consumer protection label sewn into the lining stating that the coat was manufactured by fair trade labor standards. This is most likely pre-union made, another indication of the age of this gorgeous coat.

Boxed and packed this coat exceeds the 4 pound weight limit for First Class International Mail and so would have to be shipped via Priority which explains the high International shipping rates.
