Single Breasted Alpagora Overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281056376976

This vintage overcoat was made in the late 1930s through mid 1940s timeframe by “Alpagora”. This alpaca/ wool overcoat blend was advertised heavily at that time, noted for its warmth. This coat is single breasted, with a fly front. It has no rear vent. Due to the position of the stitching on the coat, it is impossible to tell whether the coat bears a 1936 or a 1939 union tag.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
