Slight as is but still very handsome 40s wool coat in a lovely dusky sage green. Double breasted fit with chunky 4-hole darker green buttons. Long sleeves with padded shoulder and half turn up cuff. Slot pocket with flap on the hip. Beautifully fitted cut with tight bust and waist and softly flared panels to the skirt. Lined in a mauve rayon. Label is Rossmore.
The coat is not labeled with a size but fits approx like a modern day XS-S. For your best fit please refer to the measurements, and remember to allow a little room for movement.
Chest: approx 35-36" (I would advice leaving at least 2" of room for movement and garments worn underneath, good fit on a 32-34" bust but would work for smaller if you want to wear it with thicker knits)
Sleeve, from underarm to cuff: 16.5"
Sleeve, from shoulder to cuff: 22"
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam at top back: 14"
Length: 42.5" from nape to hem
Condition is still very wearable and pretty strong including the lining but does have some visible signs of wear and is a bit of a wounded bird and priced accordingly. Please see photos and check the following:
-Some small darns scattered about, most notably near the hem at the front of the coat, but also, less noticeably: a couple on the sleeves, one at the back shoulder, one by the pocket flap and one very slight on the lapel. Fairly discreet for the most part and have been done with spare wool from internal selvage so perfectly matched.
-Coat has been cleaned, but a couple of small marks near the hem at the back of the coat remain, as does a little bit of grubbiness on the shoulder. There is also some discolouration/fade to the shoulders/sleeves areas. I think in normal daylight this doesn't detract to bad.
-Buttons are original 40s but I think these are replacement as the colour is a bit darker and brighter than the wool of the coat.
-Lining is holding up well structurally. It has some small spots of wear around the underams and some light mottling to colour of the rayon as well as some slight underarm discolouration. But has been cleaned so no odours.
