Extra nice 1940's mens overcoat in a true, dark charcoal. Thick 100% wool with an amazingly fuzzy, mohair blend texture. Silvery white hairs scattered throughout create nice contrast to the darker wool. Classic, sophisticated 1940's tailoring. Three buttons down front, lapel collar, cuffed sleeves with button. Slightly padded shoulders. Two front pockets and one inner chest pocket. Partially lined in black with nicely finished seams inside. Outside coat seams feature single needle tailoring. Back kick pleat.

Bears a tag stating that the extraordinary wool fabric was loomed at the Worumbo Knitting Mills in Lisbon Falls, Maine.

made by: Clothcraft, for "The Wardrobe", San Jose CA. - featuring "The new Castledown, loomed by Worumbo"
