I really love this everyday-wear 1940s wool coat. I have a similar coat in the same "utilitarian" green inspired by military uniforms, and it is one of my favorites. So easy to add over any 40's ensemble, from Kate style pants and jacket to daytime rayon frocks. It's perfect with cuban heeled oxfords and a smart topper. The gray-green is a worsted wool, and the piece is fully lined in neutral brown satin. I see this coat as the piece you wear to the train station, or running errands downtown. From the structured shoulders to the draping lines, and buckle cuff details, it's a classic that will be one of your most useful coats!

Please forgive the wrinkled state - the worsted wool resisted my steamer - this will do best with a professional press.


Shoulders: 16"
Bust: 44"
Waist: 44" (looks excellent cinched with a belt)
Hips: 46"
Length: 43.5"

Condition: Very Good
I have made three small exterior seam repairs to this piece, including the right underarm. I find no other issues to note! After a press from a sturdy industrial machine, it will be ready to wear!
