1930s-1940s John David double breasted overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271712674846
This vintage overcoat was made in the 1930s-early 1940s by John David of New York. It is double breasted with a 3×6 buttoning and a belted back. The coat is fully lined. It has an Amalgamated Clothing workers of America label, but the way it is stitched, I can’t tell if it is a 1936 or 1939 variant. The styling of the coat points to a pre-war date of manufacture. This is an extremely heavy overcoat.

Chest (pit to pit): 26″ (doubled = 52″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 48″
