Brown Double Breasted Overcoat

This vintage overcoat was made in the 1940s by Collegian Clothes for the Matzke Dite Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  It bears a 1939 Union tag, which places its date of manufacture between 1939 and 1949.  The coat is a brown wool alpaca blend.  It has a double breasted front with wide lapels, has button tabs on the sleeves, and a plain vented back. For some inexplicable reason, someone has cut out the botton half of the lining.Chest: 23″Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″Sleeve: 25″    Photobucket
