1930s men’s alpaca overcoat

This vintage coat was made in the 1930s and was sold by Aune and Thune of Redwood Falls, MN.  It is made from an alpaca and wool blend, in an unusual stone green color.  The coat is not in the best of shape, with a lot of wear wear to the top buttonhole and surrounding fabric, and moth damage to the surface of the fabric, particularly near the bottom hem.  The manufacturer’s label also shows heavy wear.  The coat is a classic six buttoned double breasted cut.  It has cuffed sleeves, contrast caramel colored buttons, and a belted back.   Chest: 22″ Sleeve (center to cuff): 33″ Length (collar to hem): 48″    Photobucket
