This vintage jacket was made in the early 1950s by DeLong sportswear.  It is made of “Nylodeen”, a miracle fabric advertised heavily in the 1950s, which was a nylon-wool blend in a gabardine weave, designed to shed water more readily than a standard all wool gabardine. The pile collar of this coat was described in period advertisements as being a timme-mouton.  It has a front belt, a talon zipper and a quilted lining. It is tagged a size 40.Other than the color and size, the coat worn by Flick in “A Christmas Story” is nearly identical. Tagged size: 40Chest: 23″Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23-1/2″    PhotobucketPhotobucket
