1930s Alpaca Overcoat J.C. Penney Co.

Now on eBay!
This vintage overcoat was made for the J.C. Penney Co. in the 1930s.  It is an elegant double breasted style, with a six button front.  The lapels are razor sharp, and sport keyhole buttonholes.  The coat has flapped patch pockets and a belted back.  It is half lined. If worn without a jacket, this coat would measure a 42, if worn with, it is in the 38-40 territory.  Despite being in the territory of 80 years old, the coat is in very good shape.  The fabric has the distinctive nap of an alpaca wool blend, extremely popular on nicer overcoats of the day.
Chest: 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Sleeve: 25-1/2″
Length: 51″
